Records set

By her win, Hamilton has become the second-ever gospel singer to win the ultimate in the 22-year history of the awards. Joe Mettle won in 2017.

She is also the second-ever female artiste to emerge as the Artiste of the Year at the VGMA. The first was Ebony Reigns who won in 2018.

Considering that Ebony won the Artiste of the Year posthumously, Hamilton has become the first woman alive to receive the award.

KiDi reacts

Meanwhile, KiDi, known in private life as Dennis Dwamena, has spoken after losing out on the ultimate at the 2021 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA 2021).

KiDi had been highly tipped to win the Artiste of the Year award but he lost out to gospel singer Diana Hamilton.
