Ghana Music Awards has been the biggest thing on Ghana’s Music Calender for fifteen years now. Many artistes have passed through within this period. Amongst the many musicians who have passed through, Sarkodie stands out with some enviable accolades. These are the reasons:
Sarkodie has won as many as fifteen awards at the Music Awards. That means he is the artiste with the most awards. He also has 45 nominations so far. All these are successes he has chalked in less than a decade. For every year he was nominated, he went ahead to win something.
Sarkodie is the only artiste, whose 3 albums have all won at least three awards at the Music Awards. His Makye album won him 5 awards, Rapperholic won him 3 awards and the Sarkology album won him 4 awards. No Ghanaian musician has done this much with his album at the Ghana Music Awards.
Success on his first Appearance
At the 2010 Music Awards, which was Sarkodie’s first, he won five awards. It is the most awards any artiste has won in their first appearance. He also won both the Artiste of the Year and Discovery of the Year on that night. He is the only artiste to have achieved that feat.
Amongst his peers from Ghana Music Awards 2010, he has performed the most on the VGMA stage. He performed in 2010, 2012 and 2014. But for a little misunderstanding with the organizers last year, he would have performed.
