As the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) drew to an end, it was a night filled with glitz, glamour, and the celebration of Ghanaian music.
At the event, which took place on Saturday, May 6, a number of Ghana’s most accomplished musicians received awards in recognition of the significant contributions they have made to the field of music.
Black Sherif was able to take home one of the evening’s most prestigious honors—the Artiste of the Year award. This award is consistently regarded as one of the most competitive in its category.
In order to take home the prestigious accolade, the up-and-coming star triumphed over a number of other notable competitors, including Piesie Esther, Sarkodie, King Promise, Camidoh, Kidi, and Joe Mettle.

Black Sherif, who shot to prominence with his smash hit track “Second Sermon,” has emerged as one of Ghana’s most in-demand musicians in a very short amount of time. The young musician’s singular fusion of hip-hop and Afrobeats has gained him followers not only in his home nation but even outside its borders.
After being presented with the prize, Black Sherif gave thanks to God, his parents, and his fans for their unwavering support throughout his career. He also expressed his gratitude to the organizers of the VGMA for recognizing his body of work and providing him the opportunity to exhibit his skills on such a prominent stage.
In recent weeks and months, Black Sherif has been honored with a number of awards and distinctions, and the Artiste of the Year award is the most recent of these honors. At the same event, he was awarded the prize for the Most Popular Song, and he has also been nominated for a number of other accolades, both domestically and internationally.
A number of Ghana’s most talented musicians gave outstanding performances during the 24th Video Game Awards, making it a night to be remembered fondly. The fact that Black Sherif was awarded the title of Artiste of the Year makes it abundantly evident that Ghanaian music has a bright future ahead of it.
