Ghana’s first private English speaking radio station, Joy FM and its media affiliates – Joy Prime and Hitz FM – have been confirmed as official headline media partners for revolutionary Ghanaian music awards event – the 3Music Awards.
The Awards was launched in March 2018 off music TV brand 3Music to celebrate contemporary achievements in music and entertainment.
However, after a successful first edition, organizers have disclosed that TV3- which aired the event in its maiden season- will no longer have this year’s broadcasting rights.
This was after The Multimedia Group, owners of Joy FM, Hitz FM and Joy Prime television, stepped in as official media partners going into the event’s second season.
The Multimedia Group will be sharing the broadcasting privileges for the 2019 3Music Awards with sister media networks such as Adom FM, Adom TV, JoyNews TV, Nhyira FM, Luv FM and myjoyonline.com.
Contrary to popular convictions however, TV3 only held the rights as official media partners for the event’s 2018 edition, rather than proprietors of the franchise.
Now, The Multimedia Group takes over all broadcasting rights for activities related to the event prior, during and after the main awards night scheduled for March 23, 2019, at the Fantasy Dome.
Excitement is already sky high as organizers, 3Music, have confirmed changes and improvements in this year’s event.
This includes the institution of special voting mechanics for public voting which accounts for 60% of total votes, as well as a trusted 40% complement of Academy voting.
Already, a strong technical team comprising experts from the local music industry and its related contributors has been put in place to screen, analyze and review all potential nominations.
This is for the objective of competently awarding the best music art-forms, lifestyle and personalities in the year under review.
Nominations are expected to be unveiled at an announcement party on January 27, 2019.
