Ghana Music Awards Festival is the biggest event on the Ghanaian music calendar.
It is powered by CharterHouse in partnership with the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts and sponsored by Vodafone Ghana.
It seeks to honour artistes and stakeholders in the Ghanaian music industry who have released works that generated the most public excitement within the year under review, and also reward veteran artistes who have blazed the trail in the music industry.
A total of 709 nominations were received for the scheme, about 72% which received online.
Singer Joe Mettle, currently holds the ultimate title of Artist of the Year, something widely believed to be snatched by dancehall singer Ebony, who was reported dead last night in an accident on the Sunyani – Kumasi road.
