VGMA 2016 Here's the cost of what your favourite celebrity wore

Just like these celebrities, the average woman in Ghana has over GHS 1,938 worth of clothing and accessories in her closet which she wears just once or twice.

  • Published:

The annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards has evolved to be touted as a night of glitz and glamour in Ghana, where Ghanaian celebrities come to show off their stylish looks put together by their glam team (as we choose to call it).

OncenOut, a fashion tech firm in Ghana that helps ladies sell their gently used fashion items, from authentic designer clothes to shoes and bags, has put together an estimate of how much our celebrities spent on their red carpet look based on our experience in selling authentic pre-owned fashion items in Ghana.

These celebrities look glamourous but will probably only wear these dresses once. Just like these celebrities, the average woman in Ghana has over GHS 1,938 worth of clothing and accessories in her closet which she wears just once or twice.

Luckily, OncenOut can help you sell these gently used clothing and accessories so that you can buy the next trendy clothing you dream of.

Mz Vee -  GHS 450.00 to GHS 800.00

The tip-tip-tip-tip toe artiste, Mz Vee, rocked the red carpet in a red body-hugging dress with regal finishing, carefully showing off her admirable curves (Becca’s got competition). This gown costs around GHS 450.00 to GHS 800.00 based on the type of retailer. Mz Vee certainly did not spend less than GHS 800 on her red carpet look.

Berla Mundi - GHS 2,500.00

  play (Vodafone Ghana)


Oh-my-Berla, she came out to slay in her customized chic bridal gown with silver stilettos to match. If a yard of her material costs around GHS 300, you can guess the total cost of this ravishing gown. This gown is estimated not to cost less than a GHS 1,800, with stilettos like that, Berla definitely spent not less than a GHS 2,500 on her red carpet look.

Shirley Frimpong-Manso - GHS 6,000.00

AJ Sarpong - GHS 1,500.00


The lovely AJ Sarpong stood out from the rest in a white cape and black pants, paired with a nude sandal heel. A look that in our opinion stands out but would not cost you a fortune. We estimate this look to cost nothing less than a GHS 1,500.

Nana Akua Addo - GHS 2,000.00
