Gospel singer Diana Hamilton has won the 2021 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA 2021) Artiste of the Year.
Diana Hamilton picked the award ahead of KiDi, Adina, Kuami Eugene, Sarkodie, and Medikal.
Apart from winning the ultimate of the night, Hamilton's Adom (Grace) was adjudged as the Song of the Year. She pipped KiDi, Sarkodie, Kuami Eugene, Medikal, and others in that category as well.
Hamilton had earlier won the Gospel Song and Artiste of the Year awards, bringing her total awards on the night to four.
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 had been highly tipped to win the Artiste of the Year award but he lost out to gospel singer Diana Hamilton.
Moments after Hamilton was announced KiDi took to social media to thank God and his fans. He also used post on Twitter to congratulate Hamilton.
