This year’s edition of the annual 3 Music Awards being organized to reward deserving artistes for their hard work, dedication and contribution to Ghana’s music industry in Ghana will be held on Saturday, May 2.
The virtual event will come on live from a location in Accra to audiences on Joy Prime, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram as well as partner web platforms.
Originally scheduled for last month, organizers chose the option of holding it virtually due to Ghana’s ban on gatherings of more than 25 people, as well as social distancing measures.
The organizers said the awards ceremony which would be hosted by Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z host, Naa Ashorkor and the host of Prime Morning on Joy Prime, Jay Foley, would feature a handful of working staff and performers.
Artistes billed to perform at the event included KiDi, Cina Soul, Kweku Smoke, Bosom P-Yung, Lord Paper, Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Camidoh and a host of others.
According to organizers, all the artistes billed to perform at the show would treat the audience to unforgettable and splendid performances.
Known to be one of the most patronized and exciting events on the entertainment calendar in Ghana Music, 3 Music awards had for the last two years attracted a record attendance of Ghanaians and other Africans.
The Chief Executive Officer of 3Music Networks, Sadiq Abdulai Abu, revealed that proceeds from the final week of voting would be donated to the Covid-19 Trust Fund.
