“I walked off the event after Sarkodie was announced because I was tired and a bit disappointed. And I had done interviews and thought I should win and then again I looked at the shortlist and I had nothing against Sarkodie for winning artistes of the decade – looking at how much work he has put it.
“Some people tell me I am their artiste of the decade and that means more to me than just coming on stage to collect a plague. We’ve done that so many times,” he said.
Commenting on the same category the VGMA Board, said “Over the last decade, they have had the biggest impact, earned multiple nominations across the years in the VGMAs, have been relevant on the Ghanaian music scene and beyond; been very influential in music and showbiz and their craftsmanship in the industry has been phenomenal!”
The artistes who were in the category were Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Becca, Efya, Joe Mettle, No Tribe, Nacee, Okyeame Kwame, R2Bees, Samini, and Stonebwoy.
