Jay Bahd Taken Off VGMA Best New Artiste Category

The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards board has taken out Jay Bahd from the list of nominees for the Best New Artiste category.

This was announced in a press statement on April 5, 2023.

Jay Bahd was nominated together with Lasmid, Djay, Malcolm Nuna, Ewura Abena, DJ Azonto and Chief One.

According to the statement, the development came up after a one-week provisional window for addressing errors and omissions.

It explained, “Following this announcement, a number of well-meaning stakeholders made several submissions to the Board. These concerns have been reviewed and responses have been sent to the various petitioners.


“One of the submissions made, which has generated high public interest, is Jay Bahd’s inclusion in the Best New Artiste category. After deliberations, the Board agrees that Jay Bahd is not new to the scheme, because of his shared nomination on Yaw Tog’s ‘Sore’ for Collaboration of the Year in 2021. 


“This means, he’s not eligible as a nominee for the Best New Artiste category of the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. The error has been corrected, and Jay Bahd and his team have been informed accordingly. The inconvenience is deeply regretted.”

Expressing gratitude to the public for the contributions, the Board said, such will enable it to run a more robust scheme for the industry.

The 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is now slated for the 6th of May, 2023. The event will come off at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre.

It further notified the public and stakeholders of the VGMA Review scheduled within 90 days after this year’s edition. 

“Thus, anyone with ideas or concerns about the scheme should kindly send an email to info@ghanamusicawards.com.”
