A board member and spokesperson of the Vodafofone Ghana Music Awards, Nii Ayittey Hammond, has rubbished circulating reportage that two popular Ghanaian artistes Joe Mettle and MzVee had been nominated for Artiste of the Year but none of their songs nominated in other categories.
There has been a lot of speculation that gospel musician Joe Mettle and dancehall artiste MzVee have been nominated for the Artiste of the Year category but had no songs of theirs nominated in any other categories.
This raised a lot of eyebrows in the entertainment industry with some throwing questions at the organisers of the event.
Nii Ayittey Hamond in an interview with Wendy Laryea on TV3’s Midday Live on Tuesday clarified the situation by detailing the categories in which the two artistes have been nominated in.
“If I can recollect, MzVee was nominated in female vocal and reggae dancehall artiste and Joe Mettle, if I remember correctly, was nominated in songwriter or record of the year, one of them I think,” he said.
The VGMA is expected to witness one of the most exciting events since its inception as a result of the emergence of many talented musicians this year.
