The 21st edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards festival VGMA21 segmented into three days which kicked off virtually and kick started yesterday Friday, August 28, 2020 is scheduled to end on 30th August.
The 21st edition of the VGMA21 featured some of the best performances from chart topping artistes and was televised on TV3, DStv and streamed on social media pages of Ghana Music Awards (Facebook) and Charterhouse Live (YouTube).
The VGMA21 event witnessed electrifying performances from musicians like Kofi Mole, Sista Afia, Fameye, Ras Kukuu and Afrobeats star Kelvyn Boy among others who graced the podium to entertain fans in their homes.
After the unusual break-in-calendar of the 21st Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Charterhouse is thrilled to announce a comeback. Organizers and partners have settled on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th August as the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Festival Weekend.
Given the peculiarity of this year as a result of COVID-19, some notable events within the festival will not be held. Key amongst them are the Nominees Jam and the Celebrations Jam.
The revised calendar thus begins with the big conversation on who wins what, on the VGMA21 CountDown Series, showing 6pm every Sunday on TV3 and online on Facebook – Charterhouse Ghana. The 30mins show features seasoned industry pundits in category discussions, analysis and predictions. This has already begun.
The 7th edition of the VGMA Unsung follows with a pre-produced concert which will be shown on TV for public voting and participation. This year, six (6) promising acts were selected from over 5000 social media submissions- Imrana, Gyakie, Teflon Flexx, Kofi Jamar, Sherry Boss, and Abochi. These are young, talented, and ambitious musicians who are ready to go all out to win a performance slot on music’s biggest night.
Voting remains open for all categories. Fans and viewers have the power to determine who wins what in respective categories by voting via SMS to Short Code 1767 on Vodafone only, and free at http://www.ghanamusicawards.com. As always, terms and conditions apply.
