A post shared on Twitter by the artiste after winning his award read, “Certified I’m a writer!! Peter really appreciates y’all we began!! Get to know Peter stream his new album.”

This confession sparked a debate with Facebook user and media personality, Mic Yamoah, posting, “Fameye just credited a co-writer on the VGMA stage (for writing the chorus) of his song “Praise.” Does it mean he shares the Song Writer of Year award with that writer? Or he didn’t declare?”

Emerging the winner of the category he was in, Fameye bumped heads with Kofi Kinaata, Akwaboah, Diana Hamilton, Abiana, and Minister OJ.
