Well, according to Nii Ayi Tagoe, a board member of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

The general public that seemed to have shown support to Medikal prior to the awards, did not really vote for him. Speaking on Starr FM’s “Morning Zoo”, Nii said:

“The people who made noise for these artistes on social media didn’t really go out to vote. Medikal had 13 votes from the general public for the New Artiste of the Year category,” he said.

And ladies and gentlemen that is the reason why poof poof swerg swerg came up short.

One of the artist who upset Medikal for the New Artist Of The Year was Fancy Gadam and here are 16 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Fancy Gadam
