Charterhouse, organizers of the prestigious Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), have officially announced the date for this year’s event.
The award ceremony, which was to have come off in May, had to be suspended because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana, which led to a ban on public gatherings.
A statement released by Charterhouse today indicates that the awards ceremonies will come off on Friday, 28th and Saturday, 29th August.
“The festival will be climaxed with a two-day awards weekend on 28th and 29th August, for the Industry and Public Awards respectively,” parts of the statement said.
“There will be NO PUBLIC ATTENDANCE and the event will be produced solely for broadcast on TV and Digital platforms. It will feature some of the best performances from chart topping artistes and will be broadcast on TV3, DStv and streamed on social media pages of Ghana Music Awards (Facebook) and Charterhouse Live (YouTube),” the statement continued.
Charterhouse indicated that as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, some notable events within the festival will not be held, key among the Nominees Jam and the Celebration Jam.
