Here Are All the The Nominations for the 18th Annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards

On April 4th 2017, the 18th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards will take place at the Accra International Conference Centre. Rapper, Sarkodie, leads the way again this year with the most nominations. Having previously won a record 18 awards at Ghanaian Music’s Biggest night, he has been nominated for 8 different awards this year, ranging from Hip Hop Artist of The Year to Record of The Year.

Interestingly, there are minimal nominations for Nigerian artists this year, other than the all Nigerian category for African (Foreign) Artist of the Year. This is following on from the controversy surrounding Mr. Eazi’s nomination blackout last year. The annual celebration of Ghanian Music will be broadcasted live on local station GH One. Check out the full list of nominations below.
