Regular panel of UTV’s United Showbiz program and mainstream pundit, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo has shared his opinion about some of the awards he thinks did not go to the right recipients at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Arnold who is noted for being a thorn in the flesh of Shatta Wale, said Black Sherif ought to have won the HipLife/Hip-hop Artiste of the Year and not Sarkodie. Arnold said in the year under review, Sherif was the best candidate for the award and not the Sark Nation boss.

“Yes, majority of the predictions that I did came to pass, so I’m pretty much excited. But there are a couple of awards that surprised me. And again, it’s only for discussion purposes. The first one was Sarkodie winning over Black Sherif when it came to the HipLife/Hip-hop Artiste of the Year. I had the greatest conviction that Sherif did better than Sarkodie for that duration, so he could have nibbed it.

Turning his attention elsewhere, Arnold has this to say about Joe Mettle and MOG in the gospel music department.

“The other award that really surprised me was Joe Mettle beating MOG for Gospel Artiste of the Year. I felt the year under review, MOG did quite better than Joe Mettle. So these two awards really shook me a little.”

According to Arnold, “Lyrical Joe winning over Amerado because I felt Amerado this year really worked hard in terms of the rap performance category to win it.”

Arnold Asamoah his opinion is not solely subjective but the traditional opinions pundits like himself come out with after major award shows like the VGMAs.

“This conversation that we are having is part of the VGMAs. You know, the aftermath and the fact that who should have won what is part of the conversation that adds up to the buzz of the awards. So it is only fair that we discuss it.”
