When the VGA Nominees were announced in some time early April of this year, many of us were surprised after the two Ghanaian biggest musical exporters; Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy did not make it on the nominees’ list.
And though the reason why the two biggest Ghanaians musical exporters did not make any of the nomination lists is still not yet known to us we still expect many shocking results when the winner is eventually announced from the nominee's list.
However, another aspect in the nominee list which I believe has some controversy is the African artist of the year after four Nigerian's make the list of five nominees for the VGA African artist of the year after Burnaboy, Davido, Wizkid, Fireboy DML and Omah Lay all make the nominee list. And while the other artist Master KG is from South Africa, this shows that the organizer made some mistakes after not considered any of the Ghanaians musicians in Africa Artist of the year.
And for me when the winner for African Artists of the year is finally awarded by the organizers sometime around May of this year, the favourite has to be Burnaboy who had recently won a Grammys award in the just concluded 2021 Grammys.
Who do you think is the favourites for the award? Let hear your thoughts in the comments section below
