#VGMA21: Kuami Eugene beats Sarkodie, Medikal, Kinaata & co to win Artiste of the year [+Full list of winners]

The 21st edition of the much cherished Vodafone Ghana Music Awards hits our screens over the last two days to appreciate musicians who have wholeheartedly worked hard over the past year and contributed immensely to the country’s music industry.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event which usually comes off in May was postponed to August 28th and 29th. It was spread over a span of two days to make it effective. This year’s VMGA was largely attended by the artistes and celebs.

Some of the biggest winners of the two nights were Kofi Kinaata who bagged three awards, J. Derobie, Medikal, Celestine Donkor and Sarkodie who won two awards each.

Diana Hamilton won the Gospel Artiste Of The Year award, Fameye bagged the New Artiste Of The Year while Ras Kuuku won the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste Of The Year for the first time.

Other interesting wins of the nights were Kwesi Arthur, Medikal and DopeNation who won the Best Rapper Of The Year, Hiplife Song Of The Year and Afrobeats Song Of The Year respectively.

Kuami Eugene was crowned the King of this year’s music awards after he beats the likes of Sarkodie, Medikal and Kofi Kinaata to win the most adorned award of the event.

The performances were massive from our modern day musicians but the atmosphere entered another realms after the Nakorex mounted the stage; Nakorex is a music trio including Amandzeba, Akosuaa Agyapong and Rex Omar.
