Artiste of the Year category has been limited to six spots – Charterhouse clears air

Head of Communications at Charterhouse, organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, has explained why Fameye and Kofi Kinaata did not make it to the final spot for the Artiste of the Year category.

Ghanaians were shocked when the list for the VGMA Atiste of the Year was released and names such as Kofi Kinaata and Fameye were conspicuously missing from the list.

However explaining what happened, Robert Klah, Head of Communications at Charterhouse said while he acknowledges the work Fameye and Kofi Kinaata did within the year under review, the Artiste of the Year category was very competitive, and was only six spots and that Artiste of the Year are the top six for the year under review.

“It’s a basket of names you’ll have with different reasons, arguments to support why they deserve to be in the top six”, Mr Klah said on Hitz FM. “After all the deliberations, debate and the back and forth, only six were selected to make the cut. Unfortunately, those other names couldn’t make it. Not that they didn’t work; they worked. What it means is that the space is very competitive.”

The VGMA board on Saturday, March 19, 2022, unveiled the list of nominees for the 23rd edition at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre with six musicians earning spots in the Artiste of the Year category.

Kuami Eugene who is the reigning artiste of the year will battle it out with rapper Sarkodie, Lynx Entertainment’s KiDi, gospel musician Joe Mettle, afrobeat artiste King Promise, and ‘Second Sermon’ singer Black Sherif.
