It’s that time of the year again as the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) releases the nominees for various categories.
Among the categories is the Best Hip Hop Song of the Year, which promises to be an intense battle between a veteran and a new kid on the block.
Sarkodie, the king of Ghanaian rap, has been nominated for his song “Country Side,” while Black Sherif’s “Kweku The Traveller” has also made the cut.
Both rappers have been making waves in the music industry, but it remains to be seen who will come out on top in this category.
Black Sherif, a rising star who burst onto the scene in 2022, has been tipped by many as the favorite to win the award. His song “Kweku The Traveller” has won the hearts of many music lovers in Ghana and beyond. His unique style, which blends hip hop with highlife and other Ghanaian musical elements, has earned him a legion of fans.
However, Sarkodie is not one to be underestimated. He has won several awards in the past and has established himself as one of the greatest rappers of all time in Ghana. His song “Country Side” showcases his lyrical prowess and storytelling skills, and it could be enough to earn him another accolade.
Aside from Black Sherif and Sarkodie, there are also other talented rappers who have been nominated for the Best Hip Hop Song of the Year award. Amerado’s “Obiaa Boa,” Kwesi Arthur’s “Drama,” Medikal’s “Scarface,” and Malcolm Nuna’s “Benzo” are all great songs that could upset the favorites.
