It was attended by a cross section of the entertainment media; Nigerian Music stars like D’banj, Iceprince, wizkid,Duncan Mighty ,MI, Naeto C and Angolan cabo snoop who will be battling for the African artiste of the year category.

Strong contenders for the highest awards include Ghana’s fastest rapper Sarkodie, the Rap Doctor, Okyeame Kwame and Efya. They have been nominated several times in the history of VGMA and are likely to walk away with quite a number of the awards.

Artiste of The Year would walk away with GHC 10,000 and every other winner in any other category gets GHC 2,000.
