Six Ghanaian companies have entered into a partnership agreement with the organisers of the Ghana Music Awards UK, Alordia Promotions, to host this year’s edition of the event.
The event, which is being organised to reward Ghanaian music industry players who have contributed to the development of the music industry, is considered to be the biggest event on the entertainment calendar in Europe.
Since its inception four years ago, the Ghana Music Awards UK has been embraced by all stakeholders in the music industry, including music artistes and producers, locally and internationally.
The organsiers revealed that the six companies are Franko Trading Enterprise, Adonko Bitters, Seanpong Tyres, D’Kaybee Studios GH, Forever Construction & Consultancy Limited and Nana Kobo Ventures.
Details of the sponsorship packages from the companies are, however, being kept quiet as the amount of money they injected into the event is not yet known, but reports indicate that the amount involved is huge.
The organisers also announced that in addition to their various sponsorship packages, the companies are sponsoring six categories out of the 31.
The six categories being sponsored by the company are artiste of the year, popular song of the year, producer of the year, hiplife artiste of the year, best music video of the year and most popular song of the year.
The winners of these categories will receive packages from the companies.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Alordia Productions, Eric Nii Tetteh, popularly known as DJ Alordia, applauded the companies for being the main sponsors and expressed his joy to have them on board.
