Organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards have released the nominees for the 22nd edition of the show.

After suspending Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy from participating in the event for a year, the board this year accepted works from artistes that feature either of them.

However, it seems the duo did not submit their own works for nomination after expressing their displeasure at how Charterhouse announced the lifting of the ban.

Below are the list of nominees

Record of the Year

Be Your Own Beautiful – Adomaa
Daddy’s Little Girl – Adina
Fancy – Amaarae
Die 4 U – Cina Soul
Too Much – Epixode
Diplomatic Teef – Trigmatic
Comot – Worlasi
Mmusuo – YaaYaa
