The first edition of Ghana Music Week, UK (GMW-UK), originally scheduled for the Indigo at the O2 on October 21, 2016; has been re-scheduled to Friday December 30, 2016 at the same venue.
According to the organizers, the show had to be rescheduled to December 30, 2016 due to some unavoidable circumstances beyond their control.
The postponement has become very necessary to enable the organizers fix a technical element, responsible for delivering an unprecedented event-experience per GMW-UK concept.
“Also, the postponement would give us even more time to market the event adequately for the right impact, considering that GMW-UK primarily aims as marketing and driving the right traffic to the main festival in Ghana next March”, says Mr. Freddie Annang, Chairman of the GMW-UK Planning Committee.
BET Awards Winner and 2016 MAMAs nominee, STONEBWOY, remains the Headline Artiste, alongside 2016 VGMA Artiste of the Year, E.L. GMW-UK details as follows:
