Ghana Music Awards In March 1/20/2007
Ghana Music Awards (GMA) is expected to take off in March this year. Produced by the leading event management firm, The Ghana Music Awards Organisation is made up of a team of diligent professionals and practitioners in music, media, advertising and event management industries.

It is a people''s choice awards scheme that seeks to foster the development of the Ghanaian music industry thus rewarding those in the industry who have excelled in the five main music genres of Ghana; Gospel , Hip-life , Highlife , Reggae and Traditional. The event is also to appreciate those musicians who have released work within the period of contention.

Over the past six years, it has been organised under the auspices of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and the Ministry of Tourism, and has maintained its stand as the most prestigious and most recognized music event in the entertainment calendar of Ghana.

Since its inception in 2000, the Awards scheme has stood out as the only event that celebrates and recognizes the efforts of Ghanaian musicians in the country.

In this cause, the awards ceremony stands as the only platform on which Ghanaian musicians measure their strengths and weaknesses each year.

The Ghana Music Awards also serves as an inspiration to Ghanaian musicians giving them reason to perform better and aim at being recognized in the next Awards.

In 2005, the industry awards were presented at a special private dinner event at Novotel Accra City Centre where all nominees and other musicians attended.

The public awards were presented at the main ceremony to great euphoria. This expanded the event into a 3 day affair, as an industry workshop has also formed part of the event since 2001.

The event was further expanded into a 4 day fiesta in 2006, with the addition of a mega gospel concert, and a celebration jam, pushing the status of the event into a festival.

With guests attending the event from all over Africa, and also Europe, the 2006 event promises to be one of the biggest parties ever to be held in West Africa.

During the first two months of each year, the selection process for Ghana Music Awards is spearheaded by the committees the make up the GMA Organization: The Planning Committee, Selection Committee and Categorization Committee
