The Tertiary Music Awards Ghana has launched in Accra to recognize and promote music talents in the Tertiary level.
The Press Launch was held at the Hill View Guest Center, Abokobi, and was attended by media personalities, with notable mention to the CEO of Twitch House, Elorm Kofi Atopley.
Most young musicians do not get the encouragement to pursue both music and their Tertiary Level education.
This leaves a huge gap in their educational lives and in helping to bridge this gap, TMAG will employ creative measures to help promote both agendas.
In order to have a credible award scheme, the Tertiary Music Awards Ghana has set up an Academy consisting of Media personalities across the media spectrum.
The Members of Academy also include:- Cwesi Oteng Desmond (COD)-Media Personality (Hombase TV) and P.R.O. of the board, Philip Nelson (Jeezy), TV Producer (GhOne TV) and Artiste Manager, Johnny Stone, Media Personality (YFM and E-TV Ghana), Kingsford Sagoe, Media Personality (Live Xtra) and Artiste Manager, Prince Kofi Yeboah, Event Organizer (Echo House Ghana), Kwame Dzidula Adetsi, Operations Manager of BBNZ, DJ Kobo (DJ-EIB NETWORK), Frimpomaa and Agnes Armah (General Secretary, All Nations University).
Speaking at the Launch, C.E.O. and Project lead, Duke Odamtten –Sowah said, “This project aims at consciously creating a general awareness to the tertiary level student populace the need to attain a tertiary level education in addition to the pursuit of talent (Music) and would come off annually. One may ask, what inspired this initiative? Actually, most young and upcoming artistes don’t see the need to pursue a Tertiary Level education in addition their talents. They either don’t enrol at all or even if they do, they defer at point with the excuse of making time to focus on music. This ends up leaving a gap in their educational lives.”
