Samini, nails it anytime he mounts the stage and last Saturday was another great day for him when he performed at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) Nominees Jams in Sunyani.

Residents of Sunyani and its environs were virtually sent into a frenzy when Samini toook his turn at the Coronation Park where the event was hosted.

Samini whet the appetite of the large crowd with songs such as them Linda, Baby, Dagaati as he got them ready for the one hour of fun he had in store for them.

As patrons got into the groove, he turned his performance a notch higher with some of his fast tempo songs—Samini, Adult Music, Scatter Bad Mind among others. And he got everyone dancing.

Backed by the Patch Bay Band, Samini’s one hour performance on stage was the best on the night as he entertained his audience throughout.

Other musicians who also did well on the night were Nacee, Bradez, Kofi Kinaata, Ras Kuuku and Mabel Okyere.

Obviously with four popular singles, Kofi Kinaata did not have to do much since the crowd was already chanting for him.

Although the crowd danced to Susuka, Sweetie Pie and Oh Azay, the feeling was different when he played the song everyone was expecting Confession.

The police had to step in to prevent the crowd from breaking the barricade because his fans in Sunyani were so in love with the song and wanted to join him on stage.

Although her name does not ring a bell in the music industry, gospel musician, Mabel Okyere proved that she has something great in her. She was on fire for the 20 minutes opportunity that she had.

Ras Kuuku”s performances at the VGMA nominee’s announcement won him the slot at this year’s nominee’s jams and he did not disappoint. He thrilled the crowd with songs like Show Them Love, Nwansina, Bronya and a cover version of Sarkodie’s RNS.

Nacee has never let his audience down at any event especially when he is performing live and what a performance he put up on the day. His performance wouldn’t have been complete without performing Onaapo, a song which has been a hit since last year’s general elections.

Bradez, MzVee also had a good show but same cannot be said for Guru, a native of sunyani. He had everyone screaming his name yet he failed to shine. He was unable to wow the crowd.

The unsung artistes made up of Deon Boakye, CJ, Eugine, A.J lyricx, Afezzi Perry, Cina Soul, and eShun did their own thing on stage.

Patch Bay Band needs to be applauded for the wonderful work they did. The band played very well to any artiste who did live show.

On the whole, the Nominees Jam hosted by Amanda Jissih and organised by Charterhouse was a good show.

Grammy Awards 2019: Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Janelle Monae And Shawn Mendes Set To Storm Stage



Music lovers are going to have a ball as Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Post Malone and Janelle Monae are set to storm the stage at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Fans will be delighted to know that Shawn Mendes, Dan + Shay and Kacey Musgraves are also amongst the names of performers set to appear at the Los Angeles Staples Centre on 10 February.

It’ll surely be a night to remember for some of these artists who have not only been given an opportunity to show off their pipes but will also hopefully walk the stage again to collect an award. Good luck to them all. Camila, former Fifth Harmony singer, is up for Best Pop Solo Performance for Havana (Live), as well as for Best Pop Vocal Album for her LP, Camila.

Meanwhile, Shawn is nominated for Song of the Year for his hit In My Blood and will be having his eyes on the Best Pop Vocal Album gong, for his self-titled LP, Shawn Mendes. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Grammy’s without Cardi B who had a very, very busy 2018. The mother-of-one is a top contender as her name appears in five categories.

Up for Record of the Year for I Like It, her debut studio album Invasion Privacy is also nominated for Album of the Year as she hopes to land Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with Maroon 5’s Girls Like You, Best Rap Performance for Be Careful, and Best Rap Album.

Speaking to CBS This Morning, Janelle looked stunned as the presenter told her she was up for the Album Of The Year award for her third album Dirty Computer.

‘Oh my god, really?’ she asked, tearing up. Speaking about the album, Janelle said: ‘This album is so much bigger than me…It’s not about me, it’s about a community of dirty computers, of marginalised voices.

‘Being a young, black, queer woman in America, there was something I had to say and there was a group of people that I wanted to celebrate. ‘And I just – I’m happy to be representing them. I hope they feel seen, I hope they feel heard and I hope they feel loved.’ Alicia Keys is set to host the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.

Alicia Keys will host the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, which are set to air live on CBS February 10th at 8 p.m. ET.

The clip also captures Keys sharing the news with her husband, Swizz Beats, and her two young kids, one of whom offers the confused response, “What’s the Grammys?”

The video also follows Keys as she shoots her first promo for the show, and it closes with her discussing why she was so excited to accept the job. “I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I know what it feels like to be proud of the work that you’ve put in, and to be recognized for it,” Keys said. “I just feel grateful that I’m able to bring that light and that energy. This is a first – it’s a first, and it’s amazing, and I think it’s perfect timing. Honestly, I’m really excited, I feel really good about it, because I feel like it’s the perfect opportunity for me to give the light back, lift people up, especially all the young women that are nominated.”

Keys has won 15 Grammys over the course of her career, picking up her most recent trophy, Best R&B Album for Girl on Fire, in 2014. In 2002, she famously won Best New Artist while her breakout hit “Fallin’” picked up three awards, including Song of the Year.
