#VGMA14: At the music Industry Awards

For the second year running, Okyeame Kwame has prised away the very competitive Songwriter of the Year award from a strong list of nominees. Last year, it was Okyeame Kwame’s Faithful that did the trick. This year it has been his song Sika that has done it for him.

The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Industry Awards night which came off last Friday at the Oval Room of the Alisa Hotel serves as a prelude to the main event scheduled for next Saturday May 18 at the Accra International Conference Centre.

At the exclusive buffet dinner event, 10 awards were given away.
