3Music Awards has been awarded at the just ended Ghana Event Awards.

The Ghanaian music awards ceremony, held annually since 2018 to celebrate Ghanaian music, was adjudged “Ghana’s Favorite Event” after beating stiff competition from Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Shatta Wale Faith Concert, Asaase Sound Crash, Radio & TV Personality Awards, Ghana DJ Awards, Sarkodie Black Love Concert and Women In Worship.

The event was established by the 3music Network with Media General TV3 as broadcasters. The Multimedia group became the media right holder in the second and subsequent edition. In 2020, a Virtual award ceremony was held from the Fantasy Dome, Trade Fair La due to the ban on public gathering due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The winners of the fourth edition of the 3Music Awards were announced in Accra, Ghana in March 2021 with KiDi emerging as Artist of the Year. The scheme honoured outstanding musical achievements in Ghana and across Africa.

KiDi also walked away with three other awards, including Song of the Year, Afrobeats/Afropop Song of the Year and the newly introduced EP of the Year. Dancehall singer Stonebwoy and gospel musician Diana Hamilton followed closely with three awards apiece. Stonebwoy won in the Highlife Song of the Year, Album of the Year and Viral Song of the Year categories, while Diana Hamilton scooped the gongs for Gospel Act of the Year, Gospel Song of the Year and Best Female Vocal Performance.

Elsewhere, Amaarae received the Video of the Year Award for ‘Fancy’, while Nigeria’s Davido won his second African Act of the Year Award.

This year’s main ceremony was preceded by the 3Music Women’s Brunch on International Women’s Day, which recognised outstanding women in Ghanaian music. The brunch also saw the presentation of the first batch of trophies for this year’s 3Music Awards, namely Emerging Woman of the Year, Most Streamed Female Artist of the Year, Music Woman of the Year as well as a number honorary awards.

The 2021 3Music Awards was hosted by broadcasters Jay Foley and Naa Ashorkor, with performances from Santrofi, Gyakie, Medikal, Joey B, Diana Hamilton and highlife legend Nana Acheampong, among others.
