Lynx Entertainment makes a statement at 2018 VGMAs

Published

on

With almost every star gracing the red carpet for the biggest night in the Ghanaian entertainment calendar, the nineteenth edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday 14th April 2018 and was accompanied by the usual pomp and pageantry it has become known for!
Respected Ghanaian talent management firm credited with the success story of several musicians, including Asem, Eazzy, Richie, Zigi and all-female group, D3, Lynx Entertainment made a huge impact on the night.
Styled by celebrity stylist TrendyRail, the Lynx Entertainment trio on the night – MzVee, Kuami Eugene and Kidi rocked the red carpet in their elegance and glamour and received fantastic feedback about their fashion on social media on the night. You can trust TrendyRail who has worked with Elle Magazine, Vogue and Ghana’s biggest musician Sarkodie, to “nail” the looks.
From the moment MzVee stepped onto the red carpet in her custom Licorice Dress designed by Korlekie, it was obvious the Lynx Effect had been activated and they meant business. The “Odo” hitmaker, Kidi oozed a unique charm which demanded every attention in his tailored grey suit styled with a black collarless shirt with a burgundy pocket square and burgundy shoes to add a pop of colour.
How many rockstars can look this clean on a red carpet?  Kuami Eugene wore a carefully tailored navy suit with a hint of colour by styling the suit with a white collar shirt. He wouldn’t be a rockstar if he did not keep the rockstar theme by adding quirky lapel pins and unbuttoned shirt!
Then the highlight of the night was the performances by the Lynx trio with each artist using the stage to the best of their abilities – demonstrating their versatility, stagecraft and star power.  MzVee gave a powerful live band performance of her hit singles ‘Rewind’, ‘Come and See My Moda’ and ‘Sing My Name’ in addition to an emotionally filled rendition of Ebony’s hit single “Date Your Fada”.
Kidi and Kuami Eugene also performed with a live band and gave a good account of themselves to justify the ‘Young Kings’ title bestowed on them by music aficionados.  Kidi grabbed the “Highlife Song of the Year” award and Kuami Eugene took home the “Highlife Artiste of the Year” and “New Artist of the Year” awards.

Ghanaian Afrobeats newcomer Adepa has released her debut single, titled “Condemn”.

Adepa, who is only 19 years, combines Afrobeats and Highlife, and she’s from Assin Fosu in the Central Region of Ghana.

With less than 6 months in the industry, Adepa has released a classic masterpiece that throws more light on the rise of an unutterable rate of abuse in relationships across the globe.

Just like the title, “Condemn”, Adepa feels everyone deserves peace in every relationship irrespective of the backgrounds of the partners.

The bold and sassy songstress made bold statements about the unfair treatments most ladies receive from men and warn them to quit if they aren’t interested in the relationship anymore.

“Condemn” is a mid-tempo Afrobeats single produced by Eka 1.

Adepa is under the management of 1RMT Records, headed by Michael Lord Gyan – the artist manager for rapper Mr One.

#VGMA2018: Ebony didn’t deserve “Artist of the Year” – Socrate Sarfo

Published

on

Controversial movie director, Socrates Sarfo, has waded into the seemingly endless debate emanating from the just -ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. The awards event, which was held at the Accra International Conference Center on Saturday, has been characterized by a barrage of issues on the various award categories and some of the eventual winners.

Speaking to TV Africa, the Director of Creative Arts, responsible for Programmes & Projects at the Commission for National Culture, stated that Tamale -based artiste, Fancy Gadam was his pick for the category of Artiste of the Year – per the definition of the category – and not eventual winner, Ebony Reigns.

“I think that even somebody like Fancy Gadam was robbed of one key category, which is the Artist of the Year… if you look at the definition, Fancy Gadam stands poles apart from all the nominees there”, he opined.

“Can you pinpoint any of the nominees there including the ultimate winner, Ebony, who did half of what he [Fancy Gadam] did?”, quizzed.

That notwithstanding, he went on to congratulate Charter House for a splendid concept, adding that it wasn’t rare for any music award show to not receive a backlash.

“I think the VGMA is a good concept and it has its own challenges like any award scheme the world over; so its normal when in Ghana, we have our VGMAs and people are not happy, but in the end, we are all winners.
