We know Adina Thembi was an industry favorite when the nominees of VGMA 2021 were released, but her “clout” dropped.
She’s been able to warm herself into people’s hearts with her recent performance at the Ghana Music Awards experience concert. It’s too late though.
KiDi and Diana Antwi Hamilton have taken over! They are hungrier. But The Golden Boy is the one to beat. He’s got the industry lynx behind him. Oh, he’s releasing an album next week, and he’s in touch with the shakers of the industry. He’s on the move. So is his team. He’s simply touched it! His label force is behind him. I’m sure his team even realizes Mr. Okumchola stands no chance this time!
Will KiDi have it that easy? I doubt. Public voting may be his nemesis. If he wins over the Academy and the Board, then it matters not. However, I doubt he’ll be able to do that. I smell politics all over. Should his winning the 3 Music Awards Artiste of the Year automatically translates into his winning the VGMA? You get the twist? Let’s stop it here and move on.
This is where Grace comes in. Diana has the backing of neutrals, and of course the pro-gospel folks. And if you care to know, gospel people vote paaa, if they really want to vote.
What makes her stand out is her cross-appeal. She’s technically won the public votes; her focus now should be getting a chunk of the Board and Academy. Then Viola!!
If KiDi really needs this, he shouldn’t gloat over the assurances from the gatekeepers; he should intensify his campaign for public votes. If he thinks it’s a done deal, he should keep grinning with that Say Cheese-like look.
The winner? It will “boil down” to Adom Grace
