Ghanaian music heavyweight Vision in Progress, also known as VIP, are the nation’s finest stage performers according to the GH Gold Chart judging panel.
In an industry of fine musicians with rather appalling stage craft as especially noted at the 020 Concert and epitomized by D-Cryme and his hapless Twi-Pop band, it was no surprise that the music legends, with more than a decade of fine, consistent stage work across the globe scored the top marks.
VIP have headlined various concerts across the country and also carved a niche for giving audiences memorable performances to last a lifetime at every one single event they have performed.
The legendary music group beat Dancehall lord Samini and rapper Tinny into 2nd and 3rd positions respectively. Current Ghana music icon Sarkodie placed a decent 4th, just about four places above fellow Tema-based entertainers R2Beez who ranked 8th on the list.
The one major surprise was the ranking of Ayigbe Edem in 9th position ahead of Hiplife superstar Castro. There were also places for super music groups 4×4 and Praye as well as the king of the Street Kwao Kese.
The Top 10 Stage-Rockers are:
1. Vision in Progress (VIP)
7. Kwaw Kesse
8. Refuse 2 be Broke (R2Bees)
9. Ayigbe Edem
