Sarkodie rules 2012 VGMA as his mum dances Azonto!

Published

on

2012 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 8Rapper, Sarkodie’s mum received some spotlight at Saturday night’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards when her son won the Artist of the Year award for a second time with his second album, ‘Rapperholic’. Dancing the popular azonto dance when she was called to join Sarkodie on stage to receive the biggest award of the night, she clearly seemed to be proud of the rapper’s achievement.   The night of fashion, excitement, shockers and very few blunders also saw Sarkodie bagging the awards for Rapper of the Year and Song of the Year for his hugely popular, ‘U Go Kill Me’ featuring E.L.  This brings his tally of Ghana Music Awards to 8 within the span of his young career.   Perhaps the biggest shocker of the night was Kwame Adinkra, winning the Record of the Year with ‘Akua Dansoa’ featuring Kwabena Kwabena, simply for the fact that the song isn’t well known to majority of Ghanaians. Increasing, the Record of the Year category seems to be a token award for the ‘underdogs’ and perhaps that needs reviewing. The biggest blunder of the night had to be Appietus attacking Charter House live on stage after there was a technical hitch in announcing the Hiplife/Hiphop Artist of the Year, which was presented by the ace producer.   The over 4 hour long ceremony saw an opening performance from Cwasi Oteng with a surprise appearance from rapper-turned-pastor, Lord Kenya. There were also performances by Efya and Sarkodie, Ben Brako and Yaa Pono, Guru, Buk Bak, 4X4, Nigeria’s Chocolate City boys (M.I, Brymo, Jesse Jagz, Ice Prince), Carbo Snoop from Angola and HHP from South Africa. The rest were Kaakie, Stonebwoy, Gifty Osei, Kwaw Kesse, Edem and EL.[gallery link="file" columns="2"]   Headline sponsors, Vodafone Ghana’s Chief Marketing Director, Uche Ofodile, thrilled with the turnout commented: “Music is a universal language that is an integral part of the development and growth of our society.  It is because of this that the Vodafone brand has a strong global association with music, and particularly the celebration of music.  Our commitment to creating an enabling environment for the growth of music is unquestionable – we’ve done it in other countries and we’ll do it in Ghana.”   The industry awards were announced at a separate ceremony earlier in the week. Here is the fill list of winners for the 2012 VGMA:   Artiste(s) of the Year Sarkodie Hiplife/Hiphop Artiste (s) of the Year Kwaw Kese Highlife Artiste (s) of the Year Kwabena Kwabena Gospel Artiste (s) of the Year Gifty Osei Best New Artiste (s) of the Year Stay Jay Best Collaboration of the Year Okyeame Kwame/Bertha – Faithful African Artiste (s) of the Year (Non Ghanaian) Ice Prince Hiplife Song of the Year D-Cryme – Kill Me Shy Highlife Song of the Year Kwabena Maphia – I Go Pay Most Popular Song of the Year Sarkodie – U go Kill Me Afro-Pop Song of the Year Zigi – You Say Wetin Hiphop Song of the Year Kwaw Kese – Poppin Gospel Song of the Year Selina Boateng – Me Nku Me Ho Reggae Song of the Year Blakk Rasta – Miss Right Group of the Year 4×4 Album of the Year 4×4 – Waist and Power Best Male Vocal Artiste Kesse – Oh Yes Best Female Vocal Artiste Efya – I’m In Love With You Best Music Video of the Year Becca – African Woman (Davis Media Group) Best Rapper of the Year Sarkodie – U go Kill Me Song Writer of the Year Okyeame Kwame – Faithful Record of the Year Kwame Adinkra – Akua Dansoa Gospel Album of the Year Gifty Osei – Fefeefe]]>
