Over the weekend, at the luxurious African Regent Hotel in Accra, the Ghana DJ Awards was officially launched at a well attended – strictly by invitation- press conference.
Early this year, the news about an Awards ceremony aimed at rewarding Ghanaian DJ’s was received with mixed feelings. The trouble of recognizing the essence of the awards ceremony had nothing to do with its significance rather its seriousness. Most people who spoke openly about the awards just after the news was made public cited similar awards which did not last its announcement as bases for contemplating on its realness.
Then came in the DJ’s for whom the awards were instituted to reward. Whereas some were excited about the recognition alone, others swept it under the carpet for being another story just to titillate them.
