Ever since the VGMAs 2017 came to an end at the Conference Centre in Accra, many have shared their views against why an artist with 7 nominations will go home empty handed.It doesn’t necessary always work like that. Competing with others also means that, they all have an equal chance of winning.
For those who argue in favor of Medikal, claims that the artist made it all the way to the artist of the year category and failed to win the New artist of the year category. On this, I agree with them. It makes absolutely no sense!.
The confirm hitmaker was on the delay show, and he vehemently expressed his disappointment for going home empty handed.
when asked about his expectations prior to the awards night proper, he said,
“To be frank, I had huge expectations, I knew I would win big but eventually, that didn’t happen”.
“Honestly, I felt disappointed. I was thinking Article wan, the ‘Hmm nyenye’ guy was my competition because almost all the stages i mounted, he was there some and his song was also big. I didn’t think of Fancy at all.”
On whether he felt robbed, he said,
“I never felt robbed. I was disappointed in myself and feeling bad for the fans who came to the show o support and always thought, we would win.”
Medikal , real name Samuel Adu Frimpong , is currently one of Ghana’s fastest rising and youngest hip hop artists. He was signed by Criss Waddle unto his AMG Business record label in 2010 but blew up in 2016.
