The Musicians Union of Ghana has announced that the winner of the Gospel Artiste of the Year at 2015 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards will drive home a Kantanka model vehicle manufactured in Ghana by Kristo Asafo.
This will be the third year that the Musicians Union is collaborating with Midland Savings and Loans to present a car prize to a winner at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
The event is arguably the biggest event on the Ghanaian entertainment calendar and it attracts the movers and shakers of Ghanaian society.
Rap group R2Bees two years ago won a car as Artiste of the Year. Rapper Joey B was the second winner when he won the New Artiste of the Year.
CEO of Midland Saving and Loans Micheal Adjovu say Midland believes in supporting proudly made in Ghana goods hence the decision to go for Katanka cars.
Midland also believes it’s time to celebrate gospel music.
According to the MUSIGA President Bice Obour Kuffour the relationship between Midland and MUSIGA is proving increasingly beneficial to both parties. He therefore called on other corporate bodies to support the creative industries.
The 16th VGMA comes off on April 11, 2015 at the Accra International Conference Centre. The event is sponsored by Vodafone with support from Star Beer and a host of other supporters.
