The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Ghana’s biggest and most patronized music awards, has officially commenced receiving nominations from the public on promising musical talents who haven’t yet become successful in the mainstream music industry. The category is labelled ‘V.G.M.A 21 Unsung’ and is purposely designed to advertise upcoming but talented and promising musicians in Ghana. The ‘V.G.M.A Unsung’ Category is open to all upcoming musicians in Ghana. The Head of Communications at Charter House Robert Klah, stated this is the biggest career boost any upcoming artiste can get in Ghana. He said this in an exclusive interview with Shine Publications today in Accra.
The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is not only about already made stars or celebrities, and this has been the norm since the inception of the ‘Unsung’ category. Over the years, this category has assisted some Ghanaian talents in rising to fame and achieving national stardom. The Head of Communications at Charter House Robert Klah, described the V.G.M.A Unsung category as the best promotional package for any upcoming musician in Ghana. “An opportunity to perform at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards will give you visibility not just in Ghana, but also across Africa. Activities preceding the main ceremony such as the ‘Nominees Jam’, the ‘Nominees Announcement Party’ and others, will be telecast on numerous television channels like DSTV and others. Plus, all these and other promotional packages that may accompany being part of the ‘V.G.M.A Unsung’ category will also come at no charge or fee to any of the nominees. This is simply the biggest career boost any upcoming musician can get in Ghana”, he explained.
The public are to nominate a promising upcoming musician by tagging a video or a picture with #VGMA21unsung on social media platforms Instagram, Facebook & Twitter. Nominations officially close on Sunday 23rd February 2020. The winner of the ‘V.G.M.A Unsung’ category will get the exclusive opportunity of performing on the main awards night to a seasoned audience and will be broadcast live across 52 countries in Africa on DSTV. Last year, the V.G.M.A Unsung category had the likes of Wendy Shay and Kelvynboy competing among other talents for the number one spot.
