Ghana’s minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Catherine Ablema Afeku has re-emphasized the country’s readiness to host the 5th edition of the much-awaited All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA).
The minister speaking at the press launch, at the plush Kempinski hotel in Accra, charged Ghanaians, and especially patrons of the 2018 AFRIMA, to put up the best of behaviour before, during and after the event and act as ambassadors of Ghana.
“I would entreat each and every one of us [for this very week] to be extra courteous to support our guests. Those who may be encountering you may ask questions. Let us all be ambassadors of our nation because we are putting Ghana on the map,” Madam Catherine Afeku stated.
Also, Mike Dada, the President of AFRIMA who was also present at the launch revealed that Ghana will be hosting the fifth edition and it is set to commence from November 21-24. The award ceremony scheduled for Saturday, November 24, 2018, at the Accra International Conference Centre, AICC, Ghana.
The AFRIMA award scheme seeks to reward and celebrate musical works, talents, and creativity around the African continent while promoting the African cultural heritage. Even though, a lot of questions have been asked by industry players about how much this whole thing is costing Ghana as a country, the replies so far have been to focus on the fun this event will bring and forgot about those things.
