5 records that may be set at 2018 VGMAs

The 2018 VGMAs comes off at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC) on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

This year's awards ceremony is the 19th edition and it is under the theme “Our Music Beyond Borders.”

Undoubtedly, the biggest night in Ghana's music industry, it will honour players in the industry for their works over the 2017/2018 music year.

YEN.com.gh takes a look at some of the records of the 18-year-old awards scheme organised by Charterhouse Ghana which may be broken this time.

1: Retention of Artiste of the Year award (Back to back winner):

Last year, Joe Mettle won the artiste of the year award to become the first ever gospel artiste winner of the awards scheme.

This year, he is in the run for the ultimate award.

Though not likely, a win for Joe Mettle will make him the first artiste to ever retain the award.

2. First posthumous winner:

In the history of the VGMAs, there has never been a posthumous awardee.

But that will likely change after Saturday Night.

With her six nominations, the late Ebony Reigns who died in a tragic accident on February 8 will likely take one home to become the first posthumous winner.

3. First female Artiste of the Year:

Ebony Reigns is also in a pole position to become the first-ever female winner of the ultimate award of the night.

Though some female artistes have got nominated for this award in previous years, none of them had the brightest chance of winning than Ebony Reigns in this edition.

If a woman would ever win the Artiste of the Year award, then it definitely should be now.

4. Most awards won a night:

In 2005, Highlife stalwart Ofori Amponsah set the record for the most wins by an artiste in one night. He took home seven awards.

Sarkodie is hoping to break that record this year as he guns for honours in nine categories.

Though it looks very difficult a task, Sarkodie is formidable and can actually win his categories on any day.

5. First ever hat-trick of 'Artiste of the Year' awards:

Since the awards started only two artistes have won the ultimate prize twice.

VIP in 2004 and 2011; and Sarkodie in 2010 and 2012.

While VIP which has metamorphosed into VVIP is not in contention for the Artiste of the Year this term, Sarkodie prominently featured.

A win for the rapper will make him the only three-time winner of the main award.
