Ghana DJ Awards Ready To Roll

The organisers of the Ghana DJ Awards, Merqury Republic, have announced that the nominations for this year’s awards open today to all working disc jockeys (DJs) in Ghana and across the world.

The event is aimed at promoting and rewarding the best achieving Ghanaian radio, night club and ‘recognised’ mobile disk jockeys (DJs) and also to create a loyal patronage for disc jockey-driven events.

It is also to generate exciting activities or promotions that would help sustain public interest in the art of disc jockeying.

According to the organisers, the theme for this year’s awards is ‘Move To The Beat’, adding that the nominees must have remarkably entertained people and played a major role in music promotion in the year under review.

The annual Ghana DJ Awards has gradually grown to become the country’s yardstick to recognise and award exceptional DJs since 2012.

Chief Executive Officer of the Merqury Republic Events, Merqury Quaye, founder of the awards, mentioned that his outfit is committed to promoting the showbiz industry as a whole for economic development, adding that it would ensure that the industry gets the necessary attention it deserves.

He stressed that the Ghana DJ Awards would be held solely in honour of the country’s most hardworking and dedicated disc jockeys who promote Ghanaian culture through music as well as skilfully play music to entertain music lovers in Ghana and other parts of the world.

Merqury Quaye said, “We have promised excellence and we need to be held accountable to deliver on those promises. We will, therefore, not shy away or come up with excuses or try and justify them in one way or another.”

According to him, this year’s event is enjoying some corporate interest as his outfit seeks to build on its uniqueness to rope in as many businesses as possible.

Kenneth Addo, marketing coordinator of Merqury Republic, said in an interview that the awards scheme will also recognise non-Ghanaian DJs who have massively promoted Ghanaian music to foreign audiences.

“Everywhere you go, there are DJs feeding a lot of people with good music on radio, at parties or special events and they need to be appreciated,” he said.

Kenneth Addo added that a date and venue for the 2016 edition of the awards will be announced later.
