A major highlight of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Night that many look forward to is the performance of the reigning VGMA Artiste of the year; With awe inspiring performances from Stonebwoy, Sarkodie and many others in years past, will Joe Mettle, the first ever gospel artiste to win that category be able to command the angels to come down? One thing we know for sure is that the young talented singer who recently got a huge commendation from American singer and songwriter Bebe Winans as a great vocalist has never failed to impress on any stage. And with the possibility of making history yet again by becoming the very first artiste to win the coveted “Artiste of the Year” back to back in the reckoning, Joe Mettle certainly has more than enough reasons to prove his mettle.
Topping the nominations yet again and cementing his unchallenged position as the most decorated Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of all time, Sarkodie, also known as King Sark to his Sark natives also takes the stage with his unique blend of hiphop and hiplife. Crowned the best rapper in Ghana, if not in Africa by many of his followers, Sarkodie is known for his energetic stage performances which always leave patrons wanting more of him.
With hit tracks like, Overdose and light it up from his “The Highest” album and other hot singles like “Gboza” and “fa sor hor” all released in the year under review, the BET and many other awards winner, Sarkodie will definitely be a delight to watch!
