Nominees For Ghana-Nigeria Music Festival USA 2022 Unveiled

At a colorful occasion in Accra, the nominees for this year’s Ghana Nigeria Music Awards Festival USA 2022 were unveiled.

The awards, organized by BIG Events Africa, aim to recognize and promote talented Ghanaian and Nigerian artists, as well as to foster collaboration and cultural interchange between the two countries.

Prince Mackay, the Country Director of the Ghana Nigeria Music Awards Festival USA 2022, stated at the unveiling of the candidates that Ghana and Nigeria have many commonalities and are culturally, socially, and economically intertwined.

According to him, the plan will enable the two countries to see past their perceived antagonism and embrace entertainment, particularly music, to bring them closer together.

Adesegun Adeosun Jnr. AKA Smade, the Co-Founder of Afro Nation, said in his address that he was overjoyed that my dream of the two countries collaborating to take over the African continent through music had come true.

The Ghana Nigeria Music Awards Festival USA 2022 is set to be the first black event to take place in the Fox Theater, and it will take place in July 2022.

Andy Dosty, Akumaa Mama Zimbi, Ola Michael, Franky 5, Mike 2, Christian Agyei Frimpong, Agyemang Prempeh, Gospel musician Jayana, Osebo the Zara Man, and a host of other entertainment aficionados attended the unveiling ceremony.

The USA edition is expected to draw a huge number of Ghanaian and Nigerian musicians and music industry stakeholders, as well as music enthusiasts from all over the world, in order to reach out to new people and cultures.

The system includes over forty (40) different categories, including Gospel, Afrobeats, Hiphop, Highlife, Reggae, Dancehall, and Afroblues, to name a few.

Adonko Company Limited and Adonko Next Level Energy Drink are sponsors of the Ghana Nigeria Music Awards Festival 2022.
