All is set for the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards(VGMA) at the Accra International Conference Centre tonight.

Kwame Sefa Kayi is not new to the VGMA. He hosted the event many times from 1999 through to 2007 until he handed over the mantle.

Nickname

Kwame Sefa Kayi is known by many as Chairman General but the broadcaster prefers to call himself the benevolent dictator on his flagship political programme.

He wanted to be a soldier

Growing up as a shy young man, Kwame wanted to serve in the military but he ended up taking up the microphone and has become one of the biggest radio personalities in Ghana.

Like he puts “I really, really, really wanted to be an army officer” but he landed in the media by accident.
