2021 VGMA Highlights

Also making the headlines are rapper Okyeame Kwame and his ex-lover, Nana Ama McBrown.

She joined him on stage during a performance and the video has got many people talking.

Okyeame Kwame was performing some of his old songs, and McBrown had been on her feet dancing at where she sat.

However, moved by the performance, she started dancing away from her seat and before one could realise it, she climbed the stage to join her ex-lover.

The gesture has got some people concluding that Okyeame made McBrown feel 'unwanted' on the stage.

Others say McBrown was left disappointed with mouth wide opened when Okyeame failed to hand over the microphone to her much as she anticipated.
