The 2018 edition of the Ghana Entertainment Awards took place last Saturday at the Schomburg Centre in Harlem,New York (USA).

The introduction of this award scheme is to appreciate and reward hardworking acts in all endeavours in the entertainment industry in Ghana, USA and Canada.

Celebrated Hiplife/Afro-pop group,Wutah comprising of Kobby and Afriyie who had two nominations Best Group and Highlife song of the Year,won the Best group of the Year award.

One of the astonishing moments that characterized the much-attended event which was mediated by Chris Attoh was how Wutah received the award. As duo,patrons were expecting to see both of the artistes jump on stage to receive the award but the sharp lenses of Razzonline.com captured only Kobby.

Wutah, the group which offered music lovers popular tunes including ‘Adonko’, ‘Big Dreams’, ‘Goosy Gander’, ‘Esikyire (Don’t Change Your Style), ‘Burning Desire’, ‘Kotosa’ and ‘Jah Will Be There’ reunited a year ago after breaking up for almost four Years.

It would be recalled that,a possible break up again of the group lurked around the showbiz industry -but the group refuted the claims.

But according to Razzonline.com’s correspondent in USA ,Kobby’s gesture of receiving the award alone has triggered the fact that the group is on the verge of breaking up again.

Patrons who spoke with Razzonline.com after the event were not enthused and questioned the organisers why they would advertise that the two were coming just for them to see  only Kobby.

Kindly watch how Kobby received the award alone in the video below!
