Vision DJ
Nominations for the 2017 Ghana Music Honours have been released. The awards, which were established in 2012, seek to “cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to the Ghanaian society; from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the musical breakthroughs of future generations of music professionals”.


Organised by the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), the ceremony sees awards in 20 categories given by an academy of peers and one category voted by the public. There is also an award handed by the president of the union to an artist considered to have “contributed immensely to the development of MUSIGA and Ghanaian music in general”.


This year, the much awarded DJ Black is up for the Best DJ honour. Both VVIP and R2Bees are up for four awards each, while rapper EL has received three nominations.


Nominees in the categories Traditional Music Honour, Music Industry Development Honour, Evergreen Highlife Artist Honour, Evergreen Hiplife Artist Honour, Evergreen Gospel Artist Honour and the President’s Choice Honours are yet to be announced. The date of the event has not been made public.
