Israel Maweta, who won “Traditional Song of the Year” at the 2003 VGMAs for his smash hit “Akume He,” has pleaded with aspiring musicians and music creators in the Volta Region to make the most of this coming weekend as the VGMA Nominees’ Jam returns to the area.
In a post he made on social media, he highlighted that “Good to know this year’s Ghana Music Awards Nominees’ Jam is coming to Volta Region again. Speaks volumes about our new generation of amazing talents in the Region especially, those doing their best to get mainstream recognition. I pray the young music talents take advantage of this great opportunity to exhibit their craft on the platform too.”

The veteran Ghanaian African Traditional Singer, who was born in Ghana, had a 7-year retirement before resuming his career last month with the CaskeysOnit-produced song “I No Go Blame You.” The song is a modern Afrobeats jam with elements of traditional music, choral music, and amapiano. Both the song and the music video are currently available on major digital streaming services. In his 22-year music career, he has released at least 18 albums. Although he is best known for his African traditional music, he also performs Gospel, Highlife, (contemporary) Afrobeats, and Reggae. Other genres that he explores include Agbadza, Borborbor, Kinka, Zigi, Appellations, and others that are more closely related to the Volta Region, which is where he is from.
