VGMA 2019 award winners: 2 key categories deferred!

The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards has grown to become the pulse of the nation’s entertainment enthusiasts.

The event garners momentum which keeps growing year on year and the 20th edition arguably sparked the most  energy in its history.

Having brought together all the key industry players: musicians, songwriters, instrumentalists, producers, video directors, and all the stakeholders in the music industry to celebrate their art while awarding same, is what has got the nation talking this evening.

Aside the red carpet which is usually a showoff of glitz and glam, the question of who walks away with what award comes top on the priority list of fans.

So far, the show has been amazing with a phenomenally seamless red-carpet session hosted by 3FM’s Drive host, Giovani Caleb and Sika Osei, ushering in the main event hosted by ace broadcaster, Kwame Sefa Kayi partnered by Berla Mundi.
