YFM Ghana in collaboration with 4SYTE TV has announced a partnership to organize the first ever Ghana Hip Hop and Urban Music Awards. This announcement was done in the studios of YFM on Wednesday, 29 July, 2015.
The Ghana Urban Music and Hip Hop Awards is being established to celebrate the achievements of urban and hip hop based talents.
The launch of the main award ceremony is scheduled to hold in October this year. Talking about the partnership, Managing Director of GMABC, Mr Akwesi Agyeman said;
“We have been talking about this for about four years now. This is an event to reward musicians in the Hip Hop and Urban music categories. I believe YFM being the number urban radio station and 4syte as the number urban TV station for the youth are the best brands to handle this.
“This partnership will reward from the underground to those doing big things. I believe we need more awards in the system and creating another avenue for them to be recognized is what we are going to do. Today marks the beginning of a great ceremony after all the years of planning, discussions, negotiations.”
