BREAKING NEWS: Charter House Finally Announce 2019 VGMA Artiste Of The Year
For the first time in the 20-year history of the Ghana Music Awards, organisers failed to announce the winner of the ‘Artiste of the Year’ category on the night of the event due to a fracas between two of the nominees of that category during the awards ceremony on Saturday.
Hosts of the Awards this year, Kwame Sefa Kayi and Berla Mundi announced that the winner for 2019 VGMA ‘Artiste Of The Year’ and the ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’ will be announced on a later date.
Following that, the organisers, Charter House have finally announced the winners for the 2019 VGMA ‘Artiste Of The Year’ and the ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’.
Charterhouse, Organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards held a press conference inside Alisa hotel to Announce the final two category winners “Most Popular Song Of The Year’ & “Artist Of the year” and as well explaining the build up to the event and all that went into it prior to the main event as well as the incident on the #Vgma20 night plus the way forward.

2019 VGMA ‘Artiste of the Year’ – null
A brawl erupted between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale camps at the 20th anniversary of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Sunday. Pandemonium broke out shortly after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’. This is the fifth consecutive time he is winning the award.
Just when Stonebwoy, who was picking up the award for the fifth time, was about to deliver his acceptance speech for the award, Shatta Wale started walking to him on stage. It’s unclear what Shatta Wale’s intentions were considering the fact that the two, over the years, have hardly seen eye to eye.
