After calling such a question ‘lame’ to Hitz FM’s Andy Dosty, the Minister told the same host that, in deed, the Government of Ghana, through the Ministry of Finance have committed an amount of $700,000 to the organization of the awards – which is on-going and expected to climax on November 24, 2018.

The Minister stated that, her Ministry has thus far spent $700,000 out of an expected amount of $1.5m for the organization this year.

She also disclosed that, Ghana is expected to pay a staggering amount of $4.5m for the hosting rights for 3 years – 2018, 2019 and 2020.
