Ghana is made up of 10 Regions with Eastern Region from my personal view, the 4th most popular regions in the country. Hi5 Production in collaboration with GMR Industries Ghana Limited producers of Darling drinks organized the Eastern Music Awards Nominees Jam. The event took place at the Koforidua Jackson Park which is in Koforidua the capital city of the region.
Prior to the event there was much controversy as to cash amounts allegedly recevied by organizers and the success of the event was in doubt. As at 7pm which was the time for the beginning of the red carpet session with Yaa Jackson, thousands of music lovers had already thronged the venue to come witness performances from their favorite superstars who have received nominations from the event.
Up and coming acts took the traditional system and began the show. Some chose to mime alone with their songs, others with the backing of instrumentals and the rest with just freestyles. They included BlackBoi, Talanku, Tee Rhyme, Chuku Lion, Racky Nova, KO7, Splitees, Kasiebo.
Obaapa Gyamfuah, a gospel artiste showed love to the event and graced the occassion with a wonderful performance.
From there onwards, the well established acts followed up. We had Choirmaster of Praye Fame, Pope Skinny, Koo Ntakra, Atom of Ye Wo Kurom Fame. In an interview with the head of the Hi5 Production expressed her surprise at the response from recevied as fans waited even though it rained during some portions of the show. The curtains closed down at 3am successfully. The voting process is still on-going and you should keep on voting for your favorite stars. and the main event comes on October at Eastern Premier Hotel. The Eastern Music Aawards was powered by Hi5 Production, wildout GH, Musiga and Pater .
The East is Capable.
