Ghana Music awards happened last night. This year I decided not to talk too much about the Ghana music awards because 1) it was not transparent—there are many questions about how people get nominated and chosen ; 2) I sent them several emails questioning their process and they never responded- therefore I decided to not even talk about them and blow up the Ghana Music Awards because I think the organization behind it is not transparent. In todays day and age, if you are not transparent, it seems as if you are trying to hide something.. so I was like hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

However , the event was last night so let me just briefly go over the winners, based on their nominations even though MANYYY people who SHOULD have been nominated were NOT on the list..

Either way here are the winners from last night GHANA MUSIC AWARDS, held in ACCRA,GHANA,West AFRICA:
You can see that Kwabena Kwabena won quite a few—that Adult Music is very popular abroad.
FUSEODG won Afropop song of the year, he is a great guy.
It looks like Sarkodie was the big winner , with 4 awards.
Sonni Badu won two.
Castro, ay, he won his category—good for him.
