The 23rd Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was held on an eventful two days, thus 6th and 7th May at the Accra International Conference Center as Ghana’s biggest night in music history.
The years theme was dubbed The People, Culture, Music and it of course came with a lot of surprises.
Surprise like afro-pop artist Kidi, winning the ultimate price; Artist Of The Year, the SAD boys leader and the most talked about young musician Black Sherif bagging three awards of the night.
But the best and most talked about surprise of this year’s VGMAs was the grand return of reggae/dancehall giant 1GAD to scheme since his banned in 2019. According to the VGMA board, the decision was taken after “careful deliberations” and “extensive consultation” with stakeholders in the music industry.
Well 1GAD is back and it seems everyone has been waiting for him.
Let’s get to the surprise that freaked everyone out at Ghana’s biggest night in music; VGMAs. Stonebwoy was introduced to perform at the VGMAs which no one expected, and it just took forever for him to appear.
Of course the award show was been streamed on @twitter.comLive so there were comments, most thought he was not going to appear, other tweets reads “@stonebwoy will not come, because he was not on the bill to perform.
Well he later came in with a big entrance creativity and the rest of his performance was magic and vibrant.
Later today in an interview with Andy Dosty on HitzFm’s #DayBreakHitz show, stonebwoy stated categorically that, his delay was planned.
He told Andy
“The planned was not to come on stage immediately, so it worked since I have been on the stage for a while, so everyone was like he’s not coming, and all of a sudden boom”.
He also said “I pulled it off, to extent of getting everyone including my band confused, even my video guy was like— “I guess someone just made him angry and he’s gone home”.
YEAH! You indeed got us all confused stonebwoy, you really….
