TGMA reinstates Amerado’s “Kwaku Ananse” as most popular song, corrects other errors

The Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA), has announced that Amerado's "Kwaku Ananse" has been reinstated as one of the contenders for the coveted title of Most Popular Song of the Year.


This revelation comes after a thorough review by the TGMA board following a one-week window for Errors & Omissions in the nominations process.

The press release, issued on Monday, April 15th, 2024, addressed the corrections made during the evaluation period. Notably, the board acknowledged an oversight regarding the categorization of Amerado's hit track, "Kwaku Ananse." Initially nominated for Best Highlife Song under its remix version, the board recognized the original rendition's popularity and significance.

Consequently, "Kwaku Ananse" has been nominated for both Best Highlife Song and Most Popular Song of the Year categories.


Another adjustment highlighted in the release concerned the song "Lonely Road" by O'Kenneth & Xlim Kid. Originally submitted as a featured work, the board rectified the entry to reflect it as a joint project by both artists.

Robert Klah, on behalf of the 25th TGMA Board, expressed gratitude to the music community for their active participation in the Errors & Omissions window.

He reiterated the board's commitment to fairness and transparency in the awards process, acknowledging the stakeholders' contributions over the past 25 years.

Ghanaian rapper Amerado had questioned the organizers of the Telecel Ghana Music Awards[TGMA] Charterhouse on why they failed to nominate his popular song, “Kwaku Ananse”.

Kwaku Ananse Remix – Amerado ft Fameye earned a place in the best collaboration category while The Hardest – Amerado earned a place in the best rap performance.


But the original version of his popular tune “Kwaku Ananse” failed to earn a nomination.
