With the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana and respect to the President’s ban on all social gatherings, the 3rd edition of the 3Music Awards was held virtually and streamed to audiences via social media, web platforms and some selected television stations.
The much-publicised event which was emceed by ace broadcasters,Jay Foley and Nana Ashorkor, witnessed ameliorating performances from top-notch artistes such as Kweku Smoke, Bosom P-Yung,Kidi,Cena Soul, Jupitar and Fameye.
Kofi Kinaata won arguably the biggest award of the night, the Song of the Year with his hit song Things Fall Apart. He also won Highlife Song of the Year with the same song.
Speaking in an interview with Nana Adwoa Annan of Atinka TV/FM, the Public relation officer for 3Music Awards, Obed Boafo who was answering a question in line with whether they were able to recoup money they spent in organising this year’s event, indicated strenuously that,“Oh,no. absolutely no.. We didn’t make any money”.
According to Obed,”We were not thinking about making money because we are not in normal times…this is not the time to talk about making profit..Businesses all over the world people are rather looking at new stuff”.
Upon persuasion by Nana Adwoa Annan to reveal how they paid the artistes who were billed to perform and the production crew, Obed Boafo with a smile answered,”Hahahaha,as to how we paid them these are contractural ways between us; there was some sort of agreement before they accepted to work with us”.
