So all these awards schemes are about plagues without cash prices? There seems to be a lot of jokes in the Ghanaian entertainment industry judging from what rapper Edem has revealed.
All this while we thought 3Music Awards came with cash prices but it seems we were deceiving ourselves as rapper Edem has told organisers of 3Music Awards to add money to the awards and not just present plaques to winners.
Edem was of the view that winners cannot eat the plaques so it is important and wise to add cash prices to the plaques.
3Music awards scheme which is aimed at awarding the achievements of musicians announced nominees for its first edition of the awards scheme over the weekend.
The scheme is focused on Hiplife/Hip-hop, AfroBeat, Reggae/Dancehall, Gospel, Best use of social media and other social media related activities of Ghanaians on the internet.
Edem registering his displeasure in previously held awards without cash prices took to his Twitter page and wrote:
“Three Music… Great initiative… Please add Cash and other Succulent prices for Winners, just like GN awards has done… We would appreciate the game-changing initiative”.
A lot of awards schemes in Ghana just present mere plaques to winners without adding cash to support their works and that’s what rapper Edem is against.
