[Mcbondnews]: 3Music Awards is an annual music awards scheme that seeks to celebrate music made in Ghana by awarding deserving talents by way of votes as a medium of participation from the public. The 2019 edition was one of the most talked-about events as controversial Dancehall musician ‘Shatta Wale’ took home the highest number of awards – 13, becoming the only artist to have won such a number of plaques in a single night in the history of the scheme. The organizers have promised a much more exciting event this year. The 2020 edition went virtual following the outbreak COVID-19 and ban on social gathering.

The governing board of 3 MUSIC AWARDS is hopeful and fully geared for the release of nominations to the 4th edition of the annual music awards. According to the leadership of the board and CEO Sadiq Abdulai Abu, February 12, 2021, is the date set aside to officially put out nominations to various categories of the awards scheme, and subsequently make available to the general public, media houses, and major stakeholders the notice by 8 pm same day Friday, Feb 12.

This year’s 3 MUSIC AWARDS is expected to have about 30 solid categories with the scheme’s coveted award categories being Album Of The Year, Artiste of the Year, Reggae & Dancehall Artiste of the Year and Gospel Artiste of the Year. The medium through which members of the general public shall vote is also expected to follow same, with communications from the appropriate body of the scheme to be made available and known as well.

Over the weekend, pictures were posted on the official social media handles of 3 Music Awards showing Board Meetings held at the Volta Hotel, Akosombo as part of the scheme’s routine towards the 4th edition of the annual award. It could be deduced from the pictures circulating from the said meeting that, the meeting was generally about planning, amendments, programme line-ups with further strategies discussed and approved to make this year’s awards an improvement to the previous editions.

After a long seating of the board, some new categories were introduced and approved to be part of this year’s edition and were; ‘EP’ of the Year and ‘Best Alte’ music of the year. The introduction of these new categories may suggest to be as a result of the rapid growth of our industry and probably because these are other aspects of creativity which are not being captured and recognized by other awards schemes. The Board also approved to make ‘Artiste Of The Year’ (MVP) the topmost award of the night scraping out the usual ‘Music Man’ and ‘Music Woman’ of the Year categories.
