No Stonbwoy,No Shatta Wale. See List Of Nominees For #VGMA2020


Charter House, the organisers of Ghana's biggest music award scheme, the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards has released the list of nominees for the 2020 edition which is slated for a date yet to be known.

The list comes with the names of dancehall artistes Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy missing in it as the two former artiste of the year winners are an indefinite ban for causing 'fear' and 'panic' at last year's edition.

Their ban, however, makes room for new faces in the reggae/dancehall category, as well as two spots for new faces for the artist of the year category.

Kofi Kinaata, Medikal, and Diana Hamilton are the new faces to join Sarkodie and Kuami Eugene who were nominated in the artist of the year category in 2019.

Also, the likes of Jupitar, J Derobie, and Ras Kuuku, have gained spots in the Reggae/ Dancehall song and artist of the year categories because of the absence of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.

Sensational fast rising gospel singer Efe Grace has also gained a spot in the Female Vocalist of the year category where she will face strong competition from Adina,Efya, Celestine Donkor, Lamsi and Becca who have dominated the category for a very long time.

This year’s unsung category will be battled out by fine talents like Gyakie, Sherry Boss, Imrana, Abochie, Teflon Flexx, and Kofi Jamar where one of them will be given to opportunity to show as an artiste on the main stage on the day of the event.

The announcement of the nominees comes after weeks of reviews by the Board of the Vodafone Music Awards.
