A statement issued by Charterhouse explained that “these talented artistes were featured in an up-close live-band music session” and performed two of their best songs.
It was hosted live in the Music Room.
The programme was broadcast on TV3, GhOne TV, TV7, EBN TV, Homebase TV, CTV, and online on Facebook and YouTube.
The general public were asked to vote and give the chance to one of them to perform at the 21st Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Teflon Flexx emerged the winner, after garnering the largest number of votes.
Teflon Fexx, from the Upper East region, becomes the 7th winner of the Unsung Category of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, since the category was introduced.

“We would also like to congratulate Imrana, Gyakie, Kofi Jamar, Sherry Boss and Abochi for running the race. From experience, we know that not winning a contest does not define how far you go in your career. So, keep grinding the wheels of success to the best of your ability,” the statement noted.
