Ghanaian media icon, Gilbert Abeiku Aggrey Santana, has thrown his weight behind the burgeoning rap sensation King Paluta, endorsing him for the prestigious New Artiste of the Year award.
Amidst King Paluta’s consistent dominance in the music scene with a streak of chart-topping hits, Abeiku Santana expressed strong conviction that the rapper is unequivocally deserving of the coveted accolade at the upcoming Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
Santana, a prominent figure in the VGMA Board, emphasized his firm support for King Paluta’s bid, suggesting that the failure to recognize his remarkable achievements would diminish the credibility of the awards ceremony.
“I am a VGMA Board member, and King Paluta definitely has my vote for New Artiste of the Year. Others will simply have to understand,” stated Abeiku Santana unequivocally.
In the past year, King Paluta has seen tremendous success, amassing over five million streams from his hit tracks “Yahitte” and “Sika Aba Fie.” Notably, his track “Sika Aba Fie” has gained widespread acclaim on social media platforms, including TikTok, where it has been utilized in content over a million times.
Moreover, the rapper’s rise to prominence received commendation from the illustrious rap veteran Okyeame Kwame, who hailed him as one of the most promising music talents emerging from the Ashanti Region.
As anticipation mounts for the VGMA, Abeiku Santana’s vocal support for King Paluta reinforces the artist’s status as a frontrunner for the prestigious New Artiste of the Year award, further solidifying his undeniable impact in the Ghanaian music industry.
