In its fifth week running, the Vodafone Icons: Mixed edition pulled a surprise on the audience when Benny Blanco, host of the show announced recently adjudged Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year, Sarkodie, as the guest judge for the evening. The roar from the audience proved the acceptance of the Ghana’s fastest rapper as the judge for the night that was characterized by Ghanaian highlife songs.

Sarkodie clearly brought his experience and expertise in the music industry to bear on the night’s performances as he gave his professional opinion and advice to the various groups after their performances.

This week’s edition seemed to have favoured Vybes, who came together with 2JD in the bottom two as they were overwhelmingly endorsed and saved by Miss Naa and Apietus, because ‘they outperformed 2JD last week’. 2JD had to leave the competition as the icy hands of eviction fell on them. Interestingly, the group who have been saved by the judges on two occasions were not in the bottom two this week and their excitement was seen on their faces . The night saw amazing performances of Ghanaian highlife songs from the remaining six groups including the evicted 2JD.

The groups had a visit from VGMA Best Group 4×4 and ICONS Diva’s Edition winners RnM in the ICONS’ house earlier in the week.  Both groups shared their very different experiences in the music industry and encouraged the ICONS to work hard to achieve their dream

With three evictions so far and two more to go, the public are being encouraged to vote for their favourite group to stay in the competition by texting the group name to short code 1738; as the battle for the largest prize in the music and entertainment industry in Ghana get tougher by the week. Vodafone has also announced that the highest Vodafone texter will walk away with the all new Kia Rio kind courtesy Rana Motors.

The Vodafone Icons Mixed Edition airs every Sunday on Metro TV 7:30pm and at 8pm on TV3 Ghana, Skyy TV, 4Syt TV, Crystal TV, GH One and Hitz TV (MultiTV).
