The biggest names in Ghanaian and African music gathered at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) for the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

This year’s event was definitely one for the history books.Diana Hamilton receives award from the glitz and glamour on the red carpet to wonderful performances to the unexpected chaos that brought the program to a halt which had celebrities and attendees running for safety.

The night saw several artists and producers receive honors for their work over the past year. However, two of the keenly contested categories, the ‘Artiste of the Year’ and the ‘Artiste of the Decade’ were withheld by the organizers to later be announced at a press conference.
