Merqury Republic, organisers of the Ghana DJ Awards, have opened nominations for the 2016 edition of the awards.
The nomination for this year’s awards, which is the 4th edition, is open to all hard working disc jockeys ‘DJs’ from Thursday, January 7.
The theme for this year’s awards is “Move to the Beat.” The award will honour and celebrate well-deserving DJs in Ghana and across the world.
The nominees must have remarkably entertained people and played a major role in music promotion in the year under review. The annual Ghana DJ Awards has gradually grown to become the country’s yardstick to recognize and award exceptional DJs since 2012.
Kenneth Addo, the Marketing Coordinator of Merqury Republic, said in an interview that, the awards scheme will also recognise non Ghanaian DJs who have massively promoted Ghanaian music to foreign audiences. “Everywhere you go, there are DJs feeding a lot of people with good music on radio, at parties or special events and they need to be appreciated,”. he said.
Kenneth Addo added that a date and venue for the 2016 edition of the awards will be communicated soon.
