Organized by Charterhouse Ghana, in partnership with the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards scheme has grown into a festival of music and entertainment that engages the entire country and beyond.
It is arguably the biggest, most anticipated-patronized and most significant entertainment event on the Ghanaian social calendar.
Last year, the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards recognized creative achievements in 30 categories. Gospel singer Diana Hamilton emerged as 2021’s biggest winner, taking home the coveted Artist of the Year trophy, as well as the Gospel Song of the Year and the Gospel Artist of the Year awards.
Just like previous editions, the event will honor and appreciate musicians and other music industry players who have released work (s) that generated the most public excitement within the calendar year of the scheme and will also reward veteran musicians who have blazed the trail in the music industry. VGMA will serve as the international platform through which the Ghanaian music industry can be accessed.
