Organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Charterhouse has heeded to the call by industry personnel and the general public to make public the voting results of the awards.
Even though the results have been released, questions have been asked if these voting results were not manipulated to suit the winners of the various categories.
According to critics, the results can only be trusted if the results were displayed on large screens on the awards day but certainly not weeks after the event was held.
In the voting results released on May 29, 2016, rapper EL who won the biggest award at the 17th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards on April 9, 2016, obtained 36.26% to beat Bisa Kdei with 30.26%.
Last year’s winner Stonebwoy only managed 23.38% to place third. Two-time winner of the Artiste of the Year, Sarkodie got 7.67% of the votes, SP Kofi Sarpong and VVIP obtained 1.10% and 1.05% respectively.
