The organizers of Ghana Music Awards UK (GMAUK) have postponed the 5th edition of the award scheme.
In a statement copied to Zionfelix.net, the organizers said they took this decision after a series of engagements with the government, stakeholders and security agencies on the best practice of this year’s event, in the wake of the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
The statement indicated that the decision was in the best interest of general safety hence the event has been postponed to next year, 2021.
“We are all aware that early this year, the world was hit with a pandemic known as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease. As a result, there have been restrictions curtailing public events and gatherings in the UK, and the rest of the world. Since mid-March, our music industry and creative arts in general, have been affected by this deadly pandemic,” part of the statement signed by the head of Planning and Advisory Board of GMAUK, Ekow Anderson read.
