Since the inception of the Ghana Music Awards some 18 years ago, no artiste has ever won its flagship award, Artiste of Year consecutively but rapper, EL who currently holds the title says he will break that jinx this year.
EL explained that hardly do winners of Artiste of the Year get nominated again the following year, thus since he is in the race again for Artiste of the Year, he is very sure of carrying the day when the VGMA comes off on April 8 at the Accra International Conference Centre. Although Sarkodie and music group VIP have respectively won the Artiste of the Year twice, they did not win it back to back.
According to the Koko hitmaker, who earned seven nominations including the Artiste of the Year at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), his works in the year under review shows he deserves to win the ultimate award, which will make him the first musician to win it consecutively.
Asked his chances since his contenders Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Medikal, Joe Mettle, MzVee are also tough, EL said he worked hard in the year under review and he is unfazed about the other contenders.
