The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has announced that the Gospel Artiste of the Year at this year’s Ghana Music Awards will drive home a Kantanka model vehicle manufactured by Kristo Asafo founder, Apostle Kojo Safo.
This is the third year that MUSIGA, in collaboration with Midland Savings and Loans, will be presenting a car prize to a winner at the VGMA.
The event is arguably the biggest event on the Ghanaian entertainment calendar and it attracts the movers and shakers of Ghanaian society.
Two years ago R2Bees won the car prize as Artiste of the Year and last year, Joey B received the car prize as New Artiste of the Year.
Midland Saving and Loans CEO Micheal Adjovu, in a statement said, they Midland believes “in supporting proudly made in Ghana goods hence the decision to go for Katanka cars.”
Midland, he said, believes it’s time to celebrate gospel music hence the decision to present a car to the Gospel Artiste of the Year after the first car prize award was given to Artiste of Year – R2Bees in 2013 and to new artiste of the year Joey B in 2014.
The Managing Director of Kantanka Cars, Kwadwo Safo Junior (Kosa) was happy that for the first time a group as prominent as musicians’ body is endorsing an all Ghanaian product.
On his part, MUSIGA President Bice Obour Osei Kuffour indicated that the relationship between Midland and MUSIGA is proving increasingly beneficial to both parties and musicians are happy for this partnership. He therefore called on other corporate bodies to support the creative industries.
The 16th VGMA comes off on April 11 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
