The Need for Recognition of Bands in the Ghana Music Awards Scheme

Spread the love

 

The Ghana Music Awards scheme is one of the most prestigious awards ceremonies in Ghana, honouring the best and brightest stars in the music industry. However, one of the major criticisms leveled against the awards scheme is the lack of recognition for bands. Bands such as Santrofi and Ohia Beye Ya have been making waves in the music scene, but their efforts are not being adequately acknowledged by the awards scheme.

Santrofi, for example, has been playing international shows since last year, showcasing their unique blend of highlife and Afrobeat music. They have garnered international acclaim for their music and are continuing to make strides in the music industry. However, their efforts have not been recognized by the Ghana Music Awards scheme, as they were ignored in their nominations.

This lack of recognition for bands is not just limited to Santrofi but is a broader issue in the music industry. Many bands in Ghana have been making significant contributions to the music scene, but their efforts are not being adequately acknowledged.

It is high time that the Ghana Music Awards schemes recognized and acknowledged the efforts of bands in the music industry. Bands play a crucial role in the music industry, and their unique sound and style add diversity to the music scene. It is only fair that they receive the same recognition as their solo counterparts.

The music industry in Ghana is evolving, and it is essential that the Ghana Music Awards schemes evolve with it. They need to create a category specifically for bands to ensure that their efforts are not overlooked. This will not only give bands the recognition they deserve but also encourage more musicians to form bands and contribute to the diversity of the music scene.

In conclusion, the Ghana Music Awards schemes need to recognize and acknowledge the efforts of bands in the music industry. It is not fair that bands such as Santrofi and Ohia Beye Ya, who have been making significant contributions to the music scene, are being overlooked in their nominations. It is time for the awards schemes to create a separate category for bands to ensure that their efforts are recognized and celebrated. By doing so, the awards schemes will be encouraging more musicians to form bands and contribute to the diversity of the music scene in Ghana .
