Piesie Esther Loses Artiste of the Year to Black Sherif Plus Full List of Winners

The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), one of the major awards shows in the Ghanaian music business, was held at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Convention Centre on the night of May 6. The event featured an array of great performances, surprises, and tons of joy.

The 24th annual VGMAs, hosted by Charterhouse, definitely brought excitement and joy to the victors while inflicting obvious disappointment on those who placed second. Fans and supporters were also rewarded with electrifying performances by their favorite artists.

One of the greatest moments that crowned the ceremony was the tension that was built between Piesie Esther and Black Sherif who were both tipped to win the overall artiste of the year category.
