The much anticipated music festival for the people of Northern Region is all set to blow the minds of music lovers. The award scheme has proved to be one of the most reliable award schemes in the country and can compete with the likes of the Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMA).
The Northern Music Award has succeeded in organising two successful events and launched the third edition of the music festival on July 22, 2017 at the Radarch Lodge and Conference Center in Tamale.
Speaking to the press, the Public Relationship Officer (PRO) of Northern Vision Events (NVE) Mr. Mohammed Hafiz also known in showbiz as Geeface expressed his optimism for a much better event this year and called on every industry player to contribute in making it a success.
The event organisers also assured the general public and artistes of being neutral in executing their mandate and dismissed any possibility of manipulating votes to favour any candidate. Mr. Mohammed Hafiz Geeface encouraged every artiste to pick a form and file for nomination since he believes it is an award scheme geared towards promoting Northern talents. He also added that “we need everybody to have confidence in us to deliver”.
The PRO of NVE further revealed that two more categories namely “High life song of the year” and “Best Music Promoter of the year” were added to this year’s categories to appreciate the good works music promoters are doing and to encourage the High life artistes to do more in their chosen genre.
The second edition of the Northern Music Awards saw the current VGMA new artiste of the year Fancy Gadam winning the Artiste of the year category in a “fiercely” contested category with the likes of the 69 Fans boss Maccasio, Dabba, Deensi and Ataaka.
In outlining the activities for the Northern Music Festival, Mr. Mohammed Hafiz Geeface explain to the media that the nominee jam will held at Kumbungu to appreciate their contributions in patronising shows being organised in their community, a situation he applauded.
