VGMA 2017 has come and gone already. But the loads of surprises it brought cannot be forgotten.
The best surprise of the night is a budding collaboration between Sarkodie and Tamale-based Afro-pop star, Fancy Gadam.
The BET Award winner who presented the “Best New Artiste” award to Fancy Gadam made the revelation before presenting the award.
“I was once the ‘Best New Artiste’ winner,” Sarkodie said adding that “…and the award goes to someone I have a song with…Fancy Gadam.”
Fancy Gadam set a new record last night. He became the first Tamale-based musician to ever win an award at the annual Ghana Music Awards.
Fancy Gadam, who’s impressive work in 2016 earned him a nomination in the “Best New Artiste” category beat a stiff competition from Medikal, Nii Funny, Article Wan, Feli Nuna, Ebony, Rudebwoy Ranking and Eugy to clinch the most prestigious award for newcomers.
Fancy Gadam rose to prominence last year after he reportedly filled the Tamale Sports Stadium for his concert and came to Accra to fill the National Theatre for another record concert.
