Reigning poster boy for Ewe music, Chief One, toppled 15 others to emerge winner of the Infinix Next Rated Act category at the 5th annual 3Music Awards.
Based purely on prowess, performance and relative popularity in the year under review, the category’s prime goal has been to bridge the gap between Ghana’s elevated music regions and the marginalized.
And it was Chief One who made history by becoming the first artiste based outside Accra, Kumasi and Takoradi to win a 3Music Award, scoring full technical appreciation and enough fan votes to scoop the coveted gold plaque.
He dropped seven of the biggest hit songs from the Volta Region within the past year, scoring tens of thousands of views on average for each music video. He also either headlined or opened all of the biggest concerts of 2021 in the region.
The feats were enough to earn him the Infinix Next Rated Act award from a list of entries adjudged the most exceptional music prodigies from each of Ghana’s sixteen regions by the academy of the 3Music Awards.
The spectacular Awards, held on the night of March 26 at the Grand Arena in Accra rewarded the finest Ghanaian music creatives in over 30 categories.
