The event held at the Accra International Centre on Saturday saw the rapper win four other categories. Aside winning the Hiplife/Hip-pop Artiste of the Year, his song, “Mi Naa Bo Po” was adjudged Afro Pop Song of the Year. The same track earned him Producer of the Year while the music video for “Shelele” won Music Video of the Year.

Receiving the coveted plaque, EL urged all not to be discouraged but pursue their ambitions. Earlier, he had said that when he started his solo music career, he turned death ears to comments which suggested that he quit music and do something else.
