As part of the long celebration of music made in Ghana, organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards are once again initiating the ‘National Music Summit’; a series of talks on the evolving nature of the music business around the world with focus on Ghana. This year’s event comes off on Tuesday, 21st June at the La Pa Royal Beach Hotel in Accra. As usual, experienced personalities from the music business in Ghana would sit and discuss a range of topics based on the theme “Route to Success in GH. Music”. The National Music Summit is always organized on the same day as ‘World Music Day’ as a way of echoing the importance of music both globally and locally.

A statement issued by the organizing body ‘Charterhouse’ highlighted the focus of the discussion at this year’s National Music Summit. “The music business landscape is fast changing and so must the industry, if it is to succeed. What is success? What route(s) lead to it? How do you make meaning of your Music career in Ghana and beyond? What odds must you go against and what hurdles must you jump?”, the statement read.

The panelists for this year’s edition are C.E.O. M.O.T.I- South Africa Munya Chanetsa, C.E.O Lynx Entertainment Richie Mensah, C.E.O Highly Spiritual Music Kaywa, Record Producer and Creative Entrepreneur Kofi Beatmenace, General Manager ‘3 Group’ and ‘Media General Group’ Francis Doku, and C.E.O GB Records George Britton.

The discussion will be hosted by Musician and radio personality, Andy Dosty. Also, there will be a presentation on ‘Update and the way forward for Ghamro’ by Highlife pioneer Rex Omar. Senior Partner Manager at Twitter (Ghana) Bernard Sokpe, will be present to also explain ‘how musicians can partner with Twitter to amplify their craft’.

The VGMA National Music Summit is powered by Charterhouse, and proudly brought to you by Vodafone, further together.
