Ghanaians have witnessed another night of celebrating Ghana music, honouring music legends and unifying Africa through music. On 8th April 2017, all roads led to the Accra International Conference Centre to witness the most hardworking and influential artistes of the year under review getting rewarded.

The event as usual, began with the Red Carpet which saw Celebrities showing off what they wore and talking about what they expect for the night. The main event delayed a bit due to some “Technical” problems which got rectified later on. The show began with Anita Erskine as the host and introduced DJ Black as the co-host who is also the official DJ for the night.

The stage looked colourful and lighting effects looked great! There were thrilling performances by Adina and Akwaboah performing a great song by Paapa Yankson; who won the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Lifetime Achievement. Manifest was on stage with a great performance coupled with a spectacular choreography.

Kofi Kinaata was on stage too and performed with some masquerades. A clever way to portray his culture and it was so beautiful to watch! Had some problems with his vocals but did not affect the energy his songs brought to the audience.

Other great performances are from Stonebwoy, Medikal, Kuame Eugene, EL, Sarkodie, Runtown, and few others. The most emotional moment is when the legendary Paapa Yankson appeared on stage in a wheelchair to receive the Lifetime Achievement award. He promised to get out of the wheelchair soon and will release a song for his fans who have missed him.

Manifest, Flowking Stone, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, Adina, Joe Mettle (Artiste Of The Year), Kofi Kinaata, Runtown and few others won awards. Very unfortunate that Medikal who had the highest nominations took nothing home. Very discouraging and heartbreaking for the young star and his fans (Including Loud Sound GH).
