The first edition of Ghana Music Week, UK (GMW-UK), originally scheduled for the Indigo at the O2 on October 21, 2016; has been re-scheduled to Friday December 30, 2016 at the same venue owing to a few challenges.
The postponement, organisers say, is to enable them fix a key technical element. “Also, the postponement would give us even more time to market the event adequately for the right impact, considering that GMW-UK primarily aims as marketing and driving the right traffic to the main festival in Ghana next March”, says Mr. Freddie Annang, Chairman of the GMW-UK Planning Committee.
Top Ghanaian acts Stonebwoy and EL are still scheduled to perform at the event. Ace highlife musician, Amakye Dede will not be available on the new date, and will be replaced by three other A-list acts.
Organized by Fantasy Entertainment, Musicians Union of Ghana, Showbiz Africa, ABM and Base Group; in collaboration with the Ghana High Commission, UK and Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, the show is slated for 6 pm and will be hosted by Capital Xtra’s Dj Abrantee.
