Camidoh’s manager George Mensah Britton, has expressed confidence that his artiste, Camidoh, is a strong contender for the Artiste of the Year award at the 24th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA’s).
“We’re expecting nothing but success on the night” of the VGMA’s, he said.
“For him to be nominated in that “Artiste of the Year” category means it’s a possible win,” he also said. However, even if the ‘Sugarcane’ hitmaker does not win, Mr. Britton sees the nomination as “a big achievement.”
Speaking on Class 91.3 FM’s “The Big Show” with Nana Kwesi Asare, Britton stated that Camidoh’s only competition in the category is Black Sherif. For the 2023 VGMA’s Artiste of the Year category, “If I’ll actually be honest,” he said, “I think the only competition there for Camidoh will probably be Black Sherif.”
Britton also expressed his belief that Camidoh’s nomination alone is a significant achievement, considering that the singer-songwriter was an underground artiste just two years ago. He commended Camidoh for his hard work and investment in his craft, which has resulted in his rise to the top.
“two years ago an underground artiste but has over the period,” worked his way to the top, with “a lot invested in him.”
While acknowledging that all nominees in the Artiste of the Year category are deserving, Britton singled out Black Sherif as Camidoh’s main competition. He believes that none of the other nominees in the category pose a significant threat to Camidoh’s chances of winning.
“Everyone there in the category deserves to win,” especially since they have “been counted as the top guys in the country within a period…”
Camidoh is also up for five other awards at the VGMA’s, including Vodafone Most Popular Song of the Year, International Collaboration of the Year, Best Afrobeats / Afropop Artiste of the Year, Best Male Vocal Performance of the Year, and Best Afrobeats Song of the Year. The awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at the Accra International Conference Centre’s Grand Arena.
