As part of the festivities leading up to this year’s major VGMAs celebration, organizers had already launched the 2022 VGMA in Schools project at St Mary’s Senior High School in Accra. The music-in-school platform is part of the scheme’s attempts to bridge the gap between industry and academics, allowing students interested in a future in music to interact with experts.
On Thursday (April 7), the organizers announced the channel via which its board and academy members, as well as the general public, can vote for the 23rd VGMAs nominated artistes and music professionals. Voters have from now till the next few weeks to decide on their picks as voting is expected to end later this month.
The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards maintain a 3-tier voting system made up of the Board, the Academy, and the public. Honorary Awards are reserved for the Board, and technical awards are 50% split between the Board and the Academy. For the Public (Popular) Awards, the Board has 30% voting power and the Academy has 30% voting power, leaving the public with 40% majority voting power.
Anticipation for the show is at its all-time high, as the VGMA Xperience Concert is the first official open-air concert since 2019.
With chart-topping artists such as Kofi Kinaata, Medikal, Fameye, Samini, Amerado, Kelvynboy, Joyce Blessing, Dope Nation, Akesse Brimpong, and many more, the experience can’t be anything less than surreal.
