Hosting VGMA Was Big Honour – Berla Mundi

Media Personality, Berla Mundi has disclosed that hosting this year’s edition of the Ghana Music Awards which came off last Saturday, meant the world to her.

Berla and actor John Dumelo took on the hosting duties this year and she did great.

In previous years, she was one of the hosts for the Red Carpet sessions of the awards scheme.

The Late Afternoon Show host said she is grateful that she was given the opportunity to host Ghana’s biggest music awards event.

“It meant the world to me. This is my biggest stage ever since I started,” an excited Berla said.

She added, “And it just meant that Charterhouse, VGMA and Ghana at large had come to accept me as someone they could trust enough to host such an event and so it meant the world to me. I’m always grateful for that.”

In the short time that Berla Mundi has been in the media space, she has grown to become one of the most sought after event hosts in the country with her bubbly personality and flawless English.

She has hosted events like the Miss Malaika pageants in the last few years and was a co-host for last year’s MTN Hitmaker talent show with Starr FM’S Giovanni Caleb.

Berla revealed that thinking of how to make the VGMA a great show not only for herself and Ghanaians helped in her excelling on the night.

“I’ve always been a positive person, and so instead of thinking of the mistakes I could make, I was rather thinking of how I could make the most memorable night for myself and Ghanaians as well.”

She disagreed with the assertions of social media that John Dumelo performed poorly on the night, saying that they “gelled really well. I think we did absolutely fantastic.”

Berla expressed her appreciation to Charterhouse, Vodafone and the Ghana Music Awards team for trusting her to host the show.

She was optimistic about doing better should she be asked to host the next edition in 2019.

Ebony made history as the first female to win the ultimate- Artiste of the Year award at the 19th edition of the awards scheme which was held under the theme “Our Music beyond Borders.”
