VGMA NOMINEES JAM LANDS IN SUNYANI
As we Celebrate 60 Years of GH Music, The Coronation Park at Sunyani will come alive on Saturday March 11th 2017 as the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Party Train Docks. Kumasi, Takoradi, Accra, Ho, Cape Coast and Tamale have all hosted and experienced the most exciting pre-event party in GH; The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Nominees Jam. And Now, Sunyani has joined the list of cities that have experienced the thrill and excitement that comes with hosting the nominees jam.
Everywhere the jam went, it drew thousands of people from all corners of the city, young, old, men and women came to join in the jam. The jam having travelled all over the country gives the Awards scheme a national feel, it’s a way of bringing the feel of the Awards to the door step of everyone especially those who may not be able travel to Accra for the main event.
The crowd last year in Ho was thick, it was seen as a manifestation of how the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Festival has grown over the years. The event has grown from a single day’s event into weeks of festivities that celebrates music and awards and hardworking artistes.
This year as the ride to the most anticipated event in GH fuels up to go to the Brong Ahafo Region, there is excitement buzzing the air. It’s a big deal for the nominees billed to perform but it’s also a big deal for the unsung artistes who will have to give off their best in a bid to win the chance to have their debut performance on music’s biggest night.
This year, just like years past, a chance would be given to six creative underground artistes who are yet to make it into the lime light. Nero X, Ebony, Adoma and many others got their chance as the opportunity was given them.
But the stage will not only be for the unsung artistes, the nominees would also have a chance to give fans many reasons to vote or keep voting for them. It’s a fierce contest this year and nominated artistes must bring their “A” game to the Coronation Park on Saturday March 11th 2017 if they want to win the various categories in which they have been nominated. No room for sloppy performances because aside from the fact that artistes are clamoring for votes they would be representing their various genres. Dancehall will be represented by Samini and MzVee , Raggae by Rass Kuuku, Hip life by Guru, Flowking Stone and Medical , Hi Life / Hip Hop by Kofi Kinaata and Gospel by Nacee and Mabel Okyere.
Organizers have indicated that there would be many surprise acts and this is a sure thing that would draw a crowd that is expected to top the crowd that was pulled by Ho last year.
