Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2019

...These are your nominees
Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2019

As we got to know more about the VGMA in the last week Wednesday edition of KAD Concepts’ articles, lets now go straight to the main game, i.e. the nominees for this year’s awards. Most Ghanaians have their own expectations of the list of nominees for the various categories. Some of the nominations were announced on platforms of the Media General Group, who are the official media partners of the event, including TV3, 3FM and 3news.com. Some were also announced at a nominees’ announcement party held at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra.

There weren’t a lot of surprises as many of the artistes expected to secure nominations did so. Though there were some complaints from some artistes like Kofi Kinaata who was not able to secure any nomination.
