Public nominations for the 2017 Ghana DJ Awards, which is the 5th edition, is open to all hard working disc jockeys ‘DJs’ and the general public from Tuesday, January 10 till January 30.
The theme for this year’s awards is “United By Music.” The award will honour and celebrate well-deserving DJs in Ghana and across the world who promote Ghana music.
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 recognizing and awarding exceptional DJs since 2012.
Ebenezer Boakye-Yiadom, Events Coordinator of Ghana DJ Awards 2017, 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 this scheme was designed to highlight and recognise them,” he said.
Ebenezer added that a date and venue for the 2016 edition of the awards will be communicated soon.
Last year, DJ Black of Joy FM won the Best DJ of the Year awards for the 4th consecutive time.
