- Patapaa who was an underground musician had his breakthrough in 2017
- At the maiden 3Music Awards at the Fantasy Dome in Accra Saturday, Patapaa beat stiff competition from some of the best acts in the music industry
Swedru-based artiste, Patapaa Amisty, has won his first ever award since starting his musical career.
The hip-life musician grabbed his first-ever award at the maiden edition of the 3Music Awards held at the Accra International Trade Fair Center on Saturday.
Patapaa’s hit song “one corner” came up tops in the Viral Song of the Year category after beating off stiff competition from some other popular songs.
The said category had the likes of Shatta Wale, Wutah, Kofi Kinaata and Lil Win being nominated, but Patapaa emerged winner.
Patapaa’s 'One Corner' song became an instant hit across Ghana after it was released in early 2017.
The song gained massive airplay on both radio and television, having gotten the youth excited due to its accompanying dance.
As a result, Patapaa has been invited to perform at various events across the country, but he had not yet been recognized in terms of winning an award.
That barren spell, though has now ended thanks to the 3Music Awards, which marks the Swedru-based artiste’s first since he ventured into mainstream music.
Other winners on the night include Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale, who won the Reggae/dancehall artiste of the year and Male Act of the Year respectively.
Joe Mettle also won the Gospel Artiste of the Year, with DJ Mic Smith also picking up the award for DJ of the year.
