The foundation of Ghana’s musical development has been laid by a few seasoned artists, and on November 26, 2022, a new awards program, the Ghana Lifetime Achievement Awards USA, will honor their achievements.
The awards ceremony, which is put on by 2Geez Entertainment LLC in association with the Musicians Union of Ghana and the Film Crew Association of Ghana, also aims to support some legendary musicians and performers from Ghana.
Veteran Ghanaian musicians should receive the credit they merit, according to Mr. Stephen Ohene Agyapong, a co-founder of 2Geez Entertainment, in order to sustain our musical heritage.
“We want to use this platform to help raise funds to take care of old musicians whose contribution to the growth of Ghanaian music can’t be underestimated,” he said.
“The objective is to ensure the peaceful living of our old musicians who have thrilled us with some good music some time back, and we have to take care of them.
“They remain our music legends, and they deserve to get the recognition they deserve, and we have to do anything possible to sustain their legacy,” he said.
The program’s co-founder, Mr. Godfred Wiafe, adding that they are attempting to enlist the support of all music industry players in order to ensure its success since, in his opinion, doing so will fundamentally alter the lives of our music icons.
The performers for the first night of the awards, which will take place at the Holiday Inn – 6401 Brandon Ave, Springfield, USA, will be revealed in due course, he added.
