THE 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) may be remembered for all the drama between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy but what must be noted is that it was a celebration of the hard work our musicians put in in the year under review.

This year's event was a highly competitive one and there was some tension in the Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre when the awards began to be handed out.

Although the Artiste of the Year and Vodafone Song of the Year winners were not announced on the night, many of the deserving artistes took home the new plaques designed for this year.
