The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2014

ghana-music-awards-2014

 

The 15th annual Ghana Music Awards took place this past Saturday the 3rd May and saw performances from the likes of Castro The Destroyer, Bisa Kdei, Davido, Sarkodie (Who brought out Mr Tonga, Joey B), Sonnie Badu, Iyanya and Kwabena Kwabena to name a few. The biggest of the night was the noticeably but unsurprisingly absent  Mr Shatta Wale who bagged three awards and Sarkodie who took home four. The show also had a major surprise when Ghanaian tailor and Big Brother Africa star Elikim Kumordzie dropped to one knee and proposed to girlfriend and fellow Big Brother Africa star Pokello Nare in the middle of the Best Collaboration nomination. Even though the show started ridiculously late and seemed to be a little unorganised (Loads of stopping at the start of performances, technical errors and a ridiculous amount of heckling from the crowd) I will say my favourite performances of the night were Iyanya, Castro, Sonnie Badu and Kwabena Kwabena.

I was also pleased at the fact that there was a live stream sponsored by Star Beer for the first time however I hope next year they will get a stream with great quality.. The stream was terrible!
