The journey to music’s biggest night in Ghana,
began with a call for nominations which was
answered by musicians from all genres and
this paved the way for the Vodafone Ghana
Music Awards(VGMA) Board to commence
sitting.
The Board had the tortuous task of reviewing
hundreds of entries, categorizing and
shortlisting them into the various categories
to be awarded. After many hours of board
deliberations and numerous sittings, the 2015
VGMA Board has completed its work and it’s
ready to make public, the nominees list for
this year’s event.
The excitement and anxiety is building up, the
wait and the guess work of who will be
nominated for what and who will miss the
train would be over in a few days. The event is
set to take place at the plush La Palm Royal
Beach Hotel this Friday 27th February.
The event, strictly by invitation, is a preview of
what to expect at the main event in terms of
organization and it will be attended by a tall
list of A-List guests who will comprise of the
crème de la crème in the entertainment
industry, artistes and some hundred fans of
VGMA selected from various VGMA social
media activation.
The theme for this year’s VGMAs is ‘IGNITED
BY PASSION’ which seeks to celebrate the
passion and love of the Event by the 25million
music fans in Ghana who have remained
faithful to the scheme over the past sixteen
years. This will be done by involving them
fully in all aspects of the Festival’s activities
starting from the launch and right through to
the main awards night. Selection will be
mainly done via social media.
This year’s event has seen some major
changes already, the inclusion of a Reggae/
Dancehall Artiste of the year and the re-
definition of the New Artiste of the year as
well as Music Video Directing categories.
Organizers maintain that these changes have
been made based on a general review of the
scheme consistent with its mantra of keeping
the scheme fresh and in synch with current
trends.
According to the organisers, Charterhouse,
this year’s launch is a combined launch and
Nominees Party and if previous launches are
anything to go by, one can expect a classy red
carpet event which will preceded the actual
program, a well decorated walk way to the
event grounds on the theme, ignited by
passion, lots of paparazzi, socialization and
partying with stars. The event is expected to
be on full of glitz and glamour.
The road to the most anticipated event on the
GH entertainment calendar would be cleared in
a few days, we may not know who will get cut
or who will be nominated for what at this
moment but one thing is for certain, the
controversy over who should have been
nominated and who shouldn’t have been will
begin soon after the list of nominees list is
released.
However, in the midst of all the controversies
don’t forget to vote for your favorite artistes
should they make the cut.
The 16th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is a
Charterhouse Ghana event, sponsored by
Vodafone Ghana, supported by STAR and
GHOne TV, Ignited by Passion and Powered by
25 million Fans.
