Star-studded performances to herald 3Music Awards ’22


Black Sherif, KiDi, Kuami Eugene, Camidoh, S3fa and Cina Soul will lead several other entertainers billed to perform at the 5th annual 3Music Awards, scheduled for March 26 at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference, the 3Music Awards has announced.

Additionally, rising stars Mona 4Reall, Ria Boss and Kweku Darlington will all grace the grand 3Music Awards ’22 stage, as will Gospel greats Joe Mettle and Ohemaa Mercy. Many more surprises are expected at an event reputed for its trailblazing concepts and electrifying content.

Ace presenters Naa Ashorkor and Jay Foley return to host the show which also welcomes back fans for the first time in three years following the COVID-19 pandemic. The last two editions, held virtually, helped establish the awards as one of the most revolutionary on the continent. Organisers claim that reverting to an in-person live audience will make the awards even bigger and better.

Sarkodie dominates this year’s nominations with 12 votes. Last year’s Artiste of the Year winner, KiDi, is in line for an unprecedented encore, but faces stiff competition from eight others, including label mate Kuami Eugene, as well as superstars Stonebwoy, Gyakie, Black Sherif and the aforementioned Sarkodie. No artiste has won the flagship Artiste of the Year category more than once.

…who becomes the next-rated star

3Music Awards will also honour Ghana’s Next-Rated star on main night in recognition of their contributions to music through creation, social impact and relative success within the unsung music spectrum.

Presented by Infinix, the 3Music Next Rated Award evens the playing field between performers from Ghana’s dominant regions, rewarding the most outstanding creatives from each region, and that one unsung individual standing head and shoulders above contemporaries nationally.

From a pool of sixteen, that outstanding rising star will walk home with a 3Music plaque on main night, along with exposure on a national platform to their giftedness, craft and endeavour.

The 16 nominees are the final picks from all sixteen regions of Ghana compiled by the 3Music Regional Academies and selected regional stakeholders. The show will simulcast at 7pm on 3Music TV and affiliate stations, as well as all official 3Music Awards handles on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The 3Music Awards, Ghana’s most anticipated music celebration, is brought to you by 3Music TV in association with Balantines, Boomplay Music, HD plus, Infinix Mobile, Bang and Olufsen, Hallmark Cafe Gh, Focus 1 Media and YFM; with support from Twitter, YouTube Music, Volta Hotel, Grand Arena, MX24, DGN, and Guide Radio.
