Comprising a four day tour of selected schools in Accra, the ‘Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (V.G.M.A) in Schools’ initiative will continue today at the Christian Methodist Senior High School. Today marks day 2 of the programme, and promises to be equally exciting just as educative for the students. Therefore, the reigning V.G.M.A ‘Artiste of the Year’ Kuami Eugene and V.G.M.A 2021 Nominee ‘Mr Drew’ will be present both as resource personnel and as entertainers during the event. The V.G.M.A in Schools’ initiative seeks to bridge the gap between the music industry and academia through an interactive session on the needed basics about ‘showbiz’ in Ghana.
An earlier statement released by the organizing body of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards ‘Charterhouse’, explained the relevance of the initiative. “The project, V.G.M.A In School (VIS), will work with schools, offering students who are interested in a career in music, an opportunity to dialogue with professionals. The aim is to help students in music to start right, point out the role of education in a music career, and expose students to the basics of showbusiness’, the statement read.
Already, the first day of the ‘V.G.M.A in Schools’ initiative was successful with popular musicians ‘Epixode’ and ‘Camidoh’ lending their time and experience to students of the Accra Academy Senior High School on Monday. According to the organizing company ‘Charterhouse’, Friday and Saturday will be the last days of the tour.
