TGMA Board Makes Update to Nominations

After thorough evaluation of all submissions, the board has confirmed that there were neither errors nor omissions in the nominations list, except for two categories.

The Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA) board has made revisions to the nomination lists after a week’s window for correcting errors and omissions.

It will be recalled that the announcement of the nominations on Thursday, March 28, 2024, at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) was eyed with displeasure by artistes who were left disappointed when their hit songs did not appear in certain categories as expected.

In response to this, the award scheme announced a one-week grace period for artists to voice their concerns, during which several submissions were made by stakeholders.

Lonely Road by O’Kenneth & Xlim Kid was filed as a featured work but the management of both artists pointed out that ‘Lonely Road’ was a joint project by the two artistes.

The Board noted this and corrected the nomination to reflect its category. Also, the Board considered and nominated Amerado’s ‘Kwaku Ananse‘ remix in the Best Highlife Song category instead of the song’s original version.

This impacted the song’s eligibility for consideration in the Most Popular Song of the Year category. Following a thorough review, the original version has been found to meet the criteria and has thus been nominated in the Most Popular Song of the Year category. In a press statement dated April 15, 2024, the Board reaffirmed its commitment to fairness in the Telecel Ghana Music Awards scheme.

The Telecel Ghana Music Awards event has been slated for  June 1, 2024.
