VGMA 2019 - Predicted Winners Full List

We bring you our second predictions about winners of the 2019 VGMAs. Our first list predicted that Shatta Wale will take the Artist of the Year award. If not Wale, then it’s definitely Kuami Eugene. For Highlife Song of the Year Category, Shatta Wale’s My Level was also in the lead. Hiplife Song of the Year: Yaa Pono was predicted to emerge winner in that category with his Obiaa Wone Master song. We are sure that it’s either Yaa Pono or Stonebwoy’s Kpoo keke that will take take this award.

The following are the rest of the predictions.

 

Afropop Song of the Year

Our one and only talented singer, Wendy Shay is very well deserving of this award. Her debut single Uber Driver was a breakthrough song which started the year for music lovers like us. Though, packed with controversially romantic lyrics, Wendy Shay started her musical career with Rufftown Records with a banger. She needs to be motivated to continue her “Ebony Replacement” tag. Thunder Fire by Shatta Wale and SM Millitantz was also huge, but it can’t outshine Uber Driver. If Uber Driver fails to save Wendy Shay, then Article Wan Ft Patapaa – That Thing, will win the award. I never downloaded that track but I loved it. It was played everywhere; so I didn’t miss a minute of it.

The rest of the nominations in this category are: King Promise Ft Wizkid – Tokyo, Guilty Beatz – Akwaaba, Kwesi Arthur – Don’t Keep Me Waiting, MzVee – Come and See My Moda, Dj Smith – Yenkor Ft Kwesi Arthur. Sadly, we don’t think any of these songs can win the award.

 

Hip-Hop Song of the Year

This is where Kwesi Arthur will win an award with his good rap song, Anthem. Competition in this category is not competitive at all. However, big threats to Anthem will be Medikal’s How Much and Sarkodie’s Bii Ba. But still, Kwesi Arthur will take it. The other nominees are Joey B –Stables, Kojo Cue – Wole, R2bees – Boys Kasa.

 

Reggae Dancehall Song of the Year

We know what you are thinking! Top skanka, right? Oh no please, StoneBwoy’s Top Skanka cannot beat Shatta Wale’s viral and controversial Gringo track. Gringo was well promoted (hyped) song. We heard it before it was even released with its appealing but expensive visuals. The song got the bad girls twerking dangerously to its Jamaican-styled riddim. Even though the song was highly criticized for its lyrical “emptiness”, it will win an award (If not dancehall song of the year, it would get best video award).

Tamale-based musician, Maccasio’s Dagomba Girl is the closest competitor of Gringo. Tamale guys like to vote massively to support their own (like they did for Fancy Gadam). So Maccasio might win a surprise award with his great song which features R2bees.

As for Samini’s Obaa, he relied on his past glories and tried to refabricate My Own, but it didn’t work for him. I downloaded Obaa more than 4 months ago, I only played it 1 – 3 times, it isn’t any serious song.

 

Gospel Song of the Year

Unfortunately, we are not very good at listening to gospel tracks but we can say that Bobolebobo by I. K Aning took over the country. He has a good chance to win that award. The following are the rest of the nominations.

Joe Mettle – My Everything, KODA – Hossana, Joyce Blessing – I Swerve You, Obaapa Christy-  W’asue Me

 

Gospel Artist of the Year

We are also clueless about the winner, but we would have loved to choose I. K Aning, but his Bobolebobo couldn’t earn him a nomination here. Wait! Could that mean we were wrong for predicting him as the winner? Well, please predict for us. Here are the names:

Joyce Blessing, KODA, Obaapa Christy, Akesse Brempong, Diana Hamilton, Akesse Brempong, Joe Metttle

 

Highlife Artist of the Year

We are 100% sure that Kuami Eugene will take home this award. The Rockstar has an unmatched music potential. He released big hits such as Wish Me Well, Walaahi, Odo, No one, My Time, Akua Sika etc. His talent and hard work must be appreciated.

King Promise and KiDi performed almost equally. KiDi produced bangers such as Thunder and Adiepena. Comparatively his few hit songs can’t overshadow Eugene’s countless hits. On King Promise, his Abena song was good (My girlfriend likes it a lot). His CCTV song featuring Mugeez was hot; it still is. As for his Tokyo track Ft Wizkid, it is just a normal song.

The other nominees are Akaboah and Adina. But am sorry, trust me, they will not get anywhere

 

Songwriter of the Year

This is where King Promises luck will shine. The lyrics of his CCTV song are touching. That song should have even been nominated under gospel category. But hey! Stonebwoy’s Tomorrow is also full of content. If King Promise fails, Stonebwoy takes it.

The other nominees are: Fuse ODG –Bra Fie, Teephlow – Forgive, Trigmatic – Where we Dey Go. Akwaboah – Hye Me Bo. None of these guys will win that title.

Record of the Year

Stonbewoy is sure to take home this award with his Tomorrow. This is because of the weak competitors he is facing.

See the list: Fuse ODG – Bra Fie, Akwaboah – Hye Me Bo, Okyeame Kwame – Made in Ghana, Trigmatic – Where We Dey Go

 

Best Video of the Year

It’s going to be Gringo, No Doubt. Shatta Wale’s best music video so far, is Gringo. It was expensively shot by an experienced Director Sesan.

The other nominees are Joey B –Stables, Kojo Cue & Shaker – Up and Awake, Kirani Ayat – Guda, Fuse ODG – Bra Fie, Sarkodie – Biibi Ba, MzVee – Come and See My Moda

 

Hiplife/Hiphop Artist of the Year

Medikal deserves this award. Despite suffering disappointments last year with Sister Derby (when he failed to win a single award out of his 5 nominations), he has again proven that he has some amount rapping talent. He released big hits such as Adwee Ba, How Much, Ayekoo, Talk to Am, Wrowroho (Sister Akose). The streets danced to his tunes.  Medikal’s closest competitor is Kwesi Arthur. He was very musically successful in his rap. Arthur showcased great songs such as Woara, Don’t Keep Me Waiting, Anthem, African Girl etc.  It seems Arthur might beat Medikal, but I will still go for Medikal. yOU know why? Medikal gave us danceable songs.

Sadly (but not surprisingly), Patapaa failed to live up to his one corner expectations. Apart from his successful features with other artists, he did nothing meaningful on his own. The one corner legacy is slowly fading away. He needs to sit up; we don’t want him to vanish from thin air; it is too early.

The other nominees are Sarkodie, R2bees, La Meme Gang

 

Male Vocalist of the Year

It’s KiDi; he has a great voice, even though he sometimes over-do it. Haha! King Promise is his rival in this category. He sings well

The others are Akwaboah and Luigi Maclean

 

Female Vocalist of the Year

We choose Mzvee. The rest are eShun, Efya, Cina Soul, Adina

 

Group of the Year

R2bees will win. The rest are DopeNation, Lame Gang, bethel Revival Choir

 

Rapper of the Year

We still go for our Medikal. The others are M.anifest, Teephlow, Sarkodie, Obibini

 

Best Collaboration of the Year

It’s hard to choose; very stiff competition. But it’s going to be Yaa Pono Ft Stonebwoy – Master. If Pono fails, Stonebwoy’s Kpoo Keke is next.

The others are Mzvee Ft Yemi Alade – Come See My Moda, Sarkodie Ft King Promise – Can’t Let You Go, Adina Ft Kuami Eugene – Killing Me Softly, King Promise Ft Mugeez – CCTV, Guilty Beat – Akwaaba, Dj Vyrusky Ft Kuami Eugene – Never Carry Last

African Artist of the Year

Davido wins it. The others are Wizkid, Mr. Eazi, Burna Boy, Sauti Soul, Cassper Nyovest

 

 

Best New Artist of the Year

It is already clear; Sexy Wendy Shay is the new talent in town. Kelvyn Boy and Eddie Khae are equally good, but they don’t have enough songs to deserve that title. Wendy worked harder. Always releasing good songs. The other nominees are Quamina MP, La Meme Gang, DopeNation

 

Album of the Year

We think it’s going to be sm4lyf. Shatta Wale’s Reign album was well hyped. The other nominations are Wendy Shay – Shay on You, Kuami Eugene- Rockstar,, Diana Hamiltton- I Belive, Samini – Untamed

NB: I never heard any song from Samini’s album. Haha! Where and When did he even launch it?

Samini should forget; its either Wale or Eugene’s album that will win.

 

Vodafone Most Popular Song of the Year

Tough competition here! We therefore pick out Bobolebobo by I. K Aning or Eddi Khae’s Do the Dance.

The others are Wish Me Well, My Level, Kpoo Keke, CCTV, Can’t Let You Go, Obiaa Wone Master, Akwaaba, Come and See My Moda, Woara, Thunder-KiDi

 

 

 

Best African Collaboration

It’s obvious that Guilty Beatz’s Akwaaba Ft Patapaa_Mr.Eazi­_Pappy Kojo will top all.

The others are Shatta Wale Ft Olamide – Wonders, MzVee Ft Yemi Alade – My Moda, Patoranking Ft Sarkodie – My Girl, Stonebwoy Ft Cassper – Wame.

 

Producer of the Year.

We can’t predict, but here are the nominations: Kuami Eugene, DDT, Kaywa, MOG Beats, Killbeats

 

Instrumentalist of the Year

We can’t tell the winner. Guess from this list: Unda Beats, Mizter   Okyere, Enoch Owuraku, Emmanuel Bludo.

 

THE END! THE END

Lion Heart: Film on Nigerian sex workers disqualified from Oscars

Lion Heart: Film on Nigerian sex workers disqualified from Oscars

The Academy of Motion Pictures has rejected a second entry for next year’s Oscar award for Best International Film.

The Austrian movie, Joy, is about Nigerian sex-workers in Vienna, but the Academy says it has too much dialogue in English.

Last week it turned down Nigeria’s own submission, Lionheart, for the same reason.

The rejections come in the year when the Academy re-named the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar award to Best International Film for “films that are not in the English language”.

News about the film’s disqualification was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter website, which said the Academy found that two-thirds of the dialogue in Joy was in English.

“As we do every year, the Academy is in the process of reviewing the films submitted for the International Feature Film category to determine whether they meet our eligibility rules. The film Joy, submitted by Austria, was just reviewed and is ineligible because only 33% of the dialogue is non-English,” a statement from the Academy says.

The movie was written and directed by Austrian filmmaker Sudabeh Mortezai.

Renowned film director Ava DuVernay has faulted the Academy’s decision

Return all the plaques you’ve won – Ghana DJ Awards organiser to DJ Black

Return all the plaques you’ve won – Ghana DJ Awards organiser to DJ Black

Merqury Quaye, the Chief Executive Officer of Merqury Republic, the organisers of the 2019 Ghana DJ Awards, has questioned why DJ Black should be asking him whether he was winning the 2019 Ghana DJ Awards if indeed he ever told organisers that he was not interested.

According to Quaye, DJ Black asked him on WhatsApp whether he is winning the awards this year because he did not want to attend an event that he knew he was not winning.

“I want to ask DJ Black that if he has told us not to nominate him, how does he slide in my DM (WhatsApp Direct Message) to ask me if he is winning this year, how does that conversation come up?” he quizzed.

Merqury Quaye who spoke on Joy FM’s ‘Showbiz A to Z’ on Saturday with host Naa Ashorkor indicated that the celebrated DJ has been telling him privately that he does not want to be nominated again by the Ghana DJ Awards committee but he (Merqury Quaye) advised him to issue a statement to that effect.

He then instructed DJ Black to return all the plaques he had received from his organisation if he insists he is not interested in the awards.

“If you have ever told me not to nominate you for the Ghana DJ Awards, then today I am telling you that all the plaques that have been presented to you by the Ghana DJ Awards, all the prizes that you have received from the Ghana DJ Awards return them, return all the sound systems,” Merqury Quaye said with anger.

DJ Black had said earlier on the same show that he had not been involved in the DJ awards this year, especially because he did not put up his name for nominations yet he found out he had been nominated.

“In the first place I wonder how my name got the nomination anyway because I know I’ve had a private discussion with Merqury Quaye, about not [wanting to be] nominated for a while so when my name got nominated, I was a bit surprised,” Black told Naa Ashorkor.

He added that even though this was not the first time he had asked the organisers not to nominate him, he always found his name on the list.

Recently, celebrity awards programmes in Ghana have often ended with some controversy surrounding them.

Mostly the narrative is that the organisers cheat in awarding the ultimate or that the ultimate winner does not deserve it.

This controversy is not different from the recently held Ghana DJ Awards where 12-year-old DJ Switch was adjudged the ‘Best DJ of the Year’.

Entertainment pundits have argued that the young DJ should have been given an honourary award as the most promising DJ because winning the ultimate will rather put a lot of pressure on the young girl.
