    Legendary highlife artist, Paapa Yankson, per the information picked up by www.entertainmentgh.com, is most likely to pick the Lifetime Achievement Honour at the 18th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

    Benjamin Paapa Kofi Yankson was born on June 22, 1944 at Winneba and for over 40 years, he’s kept highlife alive with the release of 15 albums that spurned a deluge of hit songs including Wiase Mu Nsem, Show Your Love, Wo Yere Anaa Wo Maame, and Tena Menkyen among others.

    He was also instrumental in the projection of music bands into critical national acclaim; the Western Diamond Band, The Gold Nuggets Band and the Carousel Seven Band.

    He has lectured and performed in many countries around the world including the US, Canada, Belgium, Britain, Germany, Holland, Nigeria, Benin and the Ivory Coast.

    Paapa Yankson, who is now wheel-chair bound, is expected to make an appearance at the main event of the VGMA, where he is expected to perform a song or two.

    It is also expected that, the organizers, Charterhouse Ghana, would put some spectacle on his honour – away from the usual norm of awarding Lifetime Achievers at the VGMA, which many critics have described as tepid.
