  1. Iddrisu Moro says:

    This is not fair awards while charter house decides not included shatta wale who could have won most of the awards

  2. Iddrisu Moro says:

    Sarkodie is not the best RAPPER in Ghana now the awards were based on Accra and Tema musicians leaving the Kumasi rappers. Just take a look at Flowkin Stone songs for this year an c who is the best rapper

  3. NYANSA4EVA says:

    Masa Sark no get size… Whether Accra nor Kumasi nor any region… Obidi baako p3

  4. Obeng Frimpong Prince says:

    Sark be senior man. I’m a Team boy but let’s say the truth, flowking stone was crazy this year. The best rapper should have gone for flowking stone. Nobody can’t trust charter house now. I now believe what shatta wale says now. The vgma is full of favoritism. Nobody is saying Sark didn’t perform well this year and the previous year but let’s face the fact, that Kumasi guy, flowking, was mad. I Rex my case

  5. Oh People of the world, see what R2Bss-Omar Stelling is doing with 1990. Can u compare a twi song -so local Sarkodie hand to mouth to 1990. Hip hop song is a song that can lead songs in the country go beyond n far from Africa. Omar Stelling is doing the same. The way they did their clip, their costume, their language etc is on point. We the pple of GH, we know what is good so learn n learn it better.

  6. Seriously, is it Ghana Music Awards or what? Are Ghanaians opinion really considered? Or should an artist bow to somebody before he is honoured? Are we not killing talents? What’s the case with Shatta Wale. Even if he has disrespected somebody does it mean his sounds are not played. Sad to say, there’s a time coming when all MUSIC TALENTS will be subdued and it will be then that we would realize it’s too late


    Flowking Stone is de best rapper …..don’t noe why dey gave it to SARK. s not fair at all……. but still STONE be de best….E. L s always aiming higher n higher…….. n for E. L no CHALLENGE

  23. youngwise omega says:


  24. Priest godson says:

    I believe good music should be recognized and honoured.
    But when an award aint going to the right person
    We should not worry they cant kill our music , the music will leave on forever in our hearts, does the most important thing we all should addupt.
    Music is made for the people, without the people
    We will make music and listen to it our self.


  25. Akua abrephy says:

    Sark is the best among all cus he always proves us wrong with his raps.. Respect sark and for EL he didnt deserve the award it should have bisa kdei.. Buh hypocrisy is killing us all.. Charter house is not doing the best when it comes to vgma.. Better up nxt time

  31. Please for those of u saying they were unfair to Shatta i think ain’t in Gh. Shatta himself has told them not to nominate him anymore else he will sue chatter house in court. So itx not their fault. Buh its sad that r2bees were not Awarded..anyways thus chatter for u guys

  32. Kwaku Winfred Adonu says:

    Sark is duin marvelously well but ds tym round da best rapper should ‘ve gone to flowking stone
    He was uncomparable ds yr let’s try to be fair chater house.U made it wrong totally wrong.

  33. Winfred Adonu says:

    I was happy El won da Artiste of da yr
    His Auntie Martha song should ‘ve won ds award long tym but I wonder da kind of songs dat compete it *Auntie Martha* there4 making it unable to grab dat previous yr.


    big ups to ma man EL for winning the ultimate award….indeed everything be KOKO for wanna God.
    Buh yet still the king still reigns…..Sark the best rapper.

  35. Oh Ghana why,sark did well but the award was for flowking stone


    SARK deserves the award cos he is creative , innovative and always giving the followers a different treat all the tyme comparing it to other one way rappers in town.
    On the side of EL too he deserve the Artise of the year award cos he really worked so hard for that.
    kofi kinata another skillful and talented rapper by all standard deserves that award with susuka tune such an
    intelligent and inspiring writing of music by such a young art.
    applauds for these art. PROUDLY MADE IN GHANA
