The nominees announcement ceremony will be attended by a cross section of music stakeholders both home and abroad, artistes and their managers among others who have been waiting anxiously to find out which of the many musical works submitted for consideration made it into the final nominees list.
Once the announcement is made, the short code for public voting will be officially activated to record voting for the various categories.
The Chief Operation Officer Emmanuel Kusi Mensah, also known as Capito, has revealed that, this year’s event is going to be different from the previous awards ceremony.
