Organisers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Charterhouse, have indicated that this year’s edition of the awards scheme will come off on Friday and Saturday, 28 and 29 August 2020.
A statement released by the Charterhouse stated that the 2020 edition of the VGMAs will be commemorated as “the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Festival Weekend.”
According to the statement, as a result of COVID-19, some notable events within the festival such as the Nominees Jam and the Celebrations Jam will not be held.
The revised calendar thus begins with the big conversation on who wins what, on the VGMA21 Countdown Series, showing 6 pm every Sunday on TV3 and online on Facebook – Charterhouse Ghana as a 30-minutes show which features seasoned industry pundits in category discussions, analysis and predictions.
The 7th edition of the VGMA Unsung will follow with a pre-produced concert which will be shown on TV for public voting and participation.
This year, six “young, talented, ambitious and promising” acts were selected from over 5000 social media submissions- Imrana, Gyakie, Teflon Flexx, Kofi Jamar, Sherry Boss, and Abochi for the Unsung category.
These are musicians who are ready to go all out to win a performance slot on music’s biggest night.
The two-day awards event for Industry Awards and Public Awards will climax the festival.
According to Charterhouse, “there will be no public attendance” and the event will be produced solely for broadcast on TV and digital platforms.
The festival 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).
Voting remains open for all categories. Fans 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
