Shocking Revelation! See reasons why Medikal missed out on new Artiste of the year at VGMA

5 min read

The 18th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards came off yesterday with high expectations for all artistes nominated especially AMG’s Medikal who had seven nominations.

Honestly most of us knew he was not going to win most of the categories but I could have bet my life savings on him winning new artiste of the year.  He had a lot of hits and performed across the length and breadth of Ghana. Had it not been for his new artiste nomination, one would think he is a seasoned artiste.

The “Too Risky” hit maker whose real name is Samuel Frimpong however came out second best in all the categories he was nominated in. The category we all predicted was an easy win for him was won by the King of the North Fancy Gadam.

Sarkodie’s facial expression as he announced the winner for the new artiste category said it all. We are all still in shock with Mr Eazi calling him new artiste of the year in a tweet. Lot of debates are ongoing on social media with some accusing Charter House of awarding the wrong person.

Here I have analysed some few reasons I personally feel made Medikal lose out on all the awards.

First of all, Medikal is a beast artiste; with back to back hits, I feel his main target was to win the coveted Artiste of the year instead of new artiste of the year. He wanted to silence critics and prove to Ghanaians he is here to take the music game by storm.

Fancy Gadam has a more cult following than Medikal, Medikal rules Sowutuom and has a lot of senior high school following but Fancy Gadam runs the whole of Northern Ghana! He has core fans that will do anything he says. His fans were more likely to vote than Medikal’s.

Medikal mainly depended on social media to canvass for votes while Fancy Gadam did a door to door alongside social media. Reports are that he even went to the market and pleaded to them to vote and they did. In terms of votes Fancy had every northerner rooting for him.

In terms of Shows Medikal performed on a lot of platforms across Ghana but Fancy Gadam filled the Tamale Sports Stadium not just once but twice and became the first Northern act to fill the National Theatre in the nation’s capital and for all the shows he was the headline act except the one he co headlined with Stonebwoy.

Yes, Fancy Gadam did not have a hot banger that cut across Ghana but he reigned in the North and conquered the South with his shows and gained the numbers whiles Medikal had the songs but unfortunately lacked in numbers.

These are the reasons why I feel Medikal lost out on the only award he was destined to win at this year’s edition.
