Gambo Is Favorite To Win GMA UK Uncovered Artiste Of The Year


Highly-talented Ghanaian rapper, Gambo, appears the favorite to win the Ghana Music Awards United Kingdom ( GMA UK) 2022 Uncovered Artiste Of The Year award.


The 'Boys Aye Wild' and 'Settle' hitmaker was nominated for the 'Uncovered Artiste Of The Year' alongside a number of other artistes.


Gambo is the reigning Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Unsung Act of the Year.


And he appears the favorite to win the GMA UK 2022 Uncovered Artiste Of The Year award.


The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place before the close of the year and it is coming after Gambo registered his presence in East Africa, having collaborated recently with Tazanian musician, Young Daresalama, on a track titled: 'Sio Simple'.



Gambo has other hit songs including 'Drip' - on which he recruited the services of Ayigbe Edem, - as well as 'Kwacha.'


Among all the nominees for the GMA UK Uncovered Artiste Of The Year, Gambo stands tall and he is unarguably the favorite musician to win the coveted award.


The GMA UK 2022 ceremony is slated to take place in October and it will be no surprise to see Gambo walking home as the Uncovered Artiste Of The Year, as he has made very positive contributions to the development of the Ghana music industry since his entry a few years ago.


His music videos are well known for changing the status quo, marketing the best parts of Ghana, and showcasing to the rest of the world that life is worth living and enjoying in Ghana.
