List of VGMA “Artiste of the Year” Winners from 1999 to 2020

The Ghana Music Awards has been in existence for the past 21 years. The award scheme was launched in 1999 by Charter house Productions. The very first awards event was organized in 1999 and it came off each and every year up to this year, 2020.

The award category that is valued by most musicians is the Artiste of the Year award. It is the biggest award of the night giving whoever wins it the bragging right to hit his or her chest that he’s the best among the best in the year under review.
