The Ghana Music Awards started in 1999 and it has since awarded Ghanaian musicians and others from Africa for their hard work and creativity.
In 2009 when the scheme was celebrating its 10 years anniversary, Artiste of the Decade award was introduced. Musician Kojo Antwi was awarded on the night as the Artiste of the Decade for his success in the industry for the past years.
It’s 2019 and what’s now Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) is 20 years. Organisers have announced that nominees for the Artiste of the Decade will be known shortly.
As we wait for the nominees, Asembi.com has put together the list of musicians who have been awarded Artiste of the year for the past 10 years.
