Think about it
Congratulations to @stonebwoy and @KiDiMusic
Next year Blacko is using Kweku the traveller to win Artist of the year hopefully 🙏. All my boys must win that award. And also hopefully they won’t steal the Gospel artist of the year for the wrong person and give it to the right person Likeee Ohemaa Mercy deserved that #VGMA23— Mimi de Violent Captain!

In 1984, the 'Terminator' said 'I'll be back'. In 2021, Kidi said 'I'll be back & indeed, he came back stronger & better in 2022 for the #ArtisteOfTheYear at #VGMA23— YFM KUMASI 🇬🇭 (@y1025fm) May 8, 2022

It was only right that Kidi wins the Artist of the Year. Blacko was his closest rival and that goes to show that Ghana Music, we're growing so well. Next year should be for Blacko if he keeps up the good work.#VGMA23— Gladys S. Ekem (@Thick_Enam) May 8, 2022
At this point King's Promises' own is sad but Rockstar will not breathe today. Especially after that hair. Boi #VGMA23— Miss Batali❤️ (@bhaterly) May 8, 2022
