The excitement and anxiety is building up, the wait and the guess work of who will be nominated for what and who will get cut would be over in a few days.
According to organisers, Charterhouse, the launch is set to take place at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel, on Friday February 27.
The strictly-by-invitation event is a preview of what to expect at the main event in terms of organisation and it will be attended by a tall list of A-List guests who will comprise of the crème de la crème in the entertainment industry, artistes and some 50 friends of the awards who took part in a social media activation.
The concept of the “friends of the VGMA”, organisers say, is a way to reward fans of the VGMA who have remained faithful for the past 16 years.
This year’s event has seen two major changes already, the inclusion of a Reggae Dancehall Artiste of the Year and the re-definition of the New Artiste of the Year category.
Organisers maintain that these changes had been made based on suggestions and criticisms received over the years.
Further details on what to expect on Friday are sketchy but if previous launches are anything to go by, one can expect a classy red carpet event which will preceed the actual programme, a well decorated walk way to the event grounds on the theme, ignited by passion, lots of paparazzi, socialisation and partying with stars. The event is expected to be full of glitz and glamour.
The road to the most anticipated event on the GH entertainment calendar would be cleared in a few days, we may not know who will get cut or who will be nominated for what at this moment but one thing is for certain, the controversy over who should have been nominated and who shouldn’t have been will begin soon after the list of nominees list is released.
