It’s that time of the year and the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is here again. As usual with every edition over the past two decades, the controversies are endless. ‘Who has to in what?’, ‘Who has to be in what category?’, ‘Who has been ignored?’ mostly dominate the headlines before and after the event.

And this year has been no different with different opinions on who should be adjudged the best rapper of the year dominating the airwaves. Hence, we at Vibelens, took a look at the nominees for the best rapper and who is likely to win?

Eno Barony:

Eno is the only female MC in the pool and she’ll definitely give her male peers a run for the money. Her hit track ‘Fear No Man’ received has received a lot of airplay.

Obviously the favorite in a pool of mostly amateurs, Sarkodie is expected to regain his crown as the rapper of the year. He has lost the 2 titles to EL and Manifest respectively.


Kojo Cue:

Cue really gave a good account of himself with his collaborative work with Kojo Cue titled Pen and Paper. We’ll see how far he will go.

Arguably one of the most creative rappers in Ghana now, however, Strongman’s body of work will make it difficult for him to win the award. It looks like it will be a good stepping stone for him by the recognition.

The category is one of the coveted on the night and most people look out for who the ‘King of Rap’ is at the end of the event. However, this year has a lot of novices, and we think Sarkodie’s experience will come through for him to regain his crown.
