According to Immanuel Teye, Kofi Kinaata made enormous impact after releasing Things Fall Apart and successfully organising his Made In Taadi Concert, aside that he was relatively quiet during the year under review compared to the likes of Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale and Sarkodie.
Arguably, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy could have made the award a competitive one but due to being banned by VGMA, he’s tipping Sarkodie to emerge the winner at the coming VGMAs ‘The Artiste Of The Year’ and these are his reason.
Sarkodie has more hit songs the year under review
He’s also had most hit songs which are on his album, #BlackLove another basic criterion for determining the artiste of the year.
He successfully organized 2 big shows(indoor/outdoor) that recorded huge numbers.
His works in general appealed to the masses more than any other act that might earn a nomination within that category.
