Wizkid emerges African artist of the year at Ghana Music Awards


Wizkid has been named the African artiste of the year at the 23rd edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).

The award ceremony, previously known as Ghana Music Awards, was established in 1999.

It is aimed at celebrating the outstanding contributions of Ghanaian musicians to the growth and expansion of its associated industry.
