Published

on

It’s the final lap of the VGMA Festival and five (5) exciting activities have been earmarked to heighten the VGMA experience in the music month of June. The journey promises to be exciting, ready?

VGMA Xperience Concert

Curated from a cross section of VGMA22 nominees, the VGMAs present a live-performed musical experience designed for industry stakeholders, and produced for the massive music lovers on-air and online. The invitation only event is slated for Saturday 12th of June, will be aired at 9pm on TV3, and streamed on VGMA pages on Facebook & YouTube.

VGMA in Schools

Passionate about nurturing music-smarts in the youth, a music in school platform has been created to bridge the gap between industry and academia. The project, VGMA in School (VIS), will work with schools, offering students interested in a career in music, an opportunity to dialogue with professionals. The aim is to help students in music to start right, point out the role of education in a music career, and expose students to basics of show business.

VGMA Music Summit

On the 21st of June, Ghana will for the first time join over 130 countries and 1000+ cities to celebrate what the French call Fete de la Musique, a.k.a. World Music Day. The day will be marked with a national dialogue, a master class, and the honoring of unsung heroes of the music ecosystem. This event will stream live on social media, and will have limited seats for in-person participants.

VGMA Weekend

The VGMA22 experience will climax with a two-day show, Friday 25th and Saturday 26th of June. Each day will project the glitz and glam of the red-carpet reception, awards ceremony for deserving artistes, and eclectic live performances from the best acts Ghana has to offer. The events will show nationwide on TV3, across Africa on Akwaaba Magic, Rok TV, and Soundcity on DSTV, and across the world on MTVBase, Vodafone and VGMA Social Media Pages.

It’s the month of music, and music’s biggest weekend beckons. The strings will create rhythms that command corresponding body poetry. Melodies of delight will sing on thousands of tongues. And unfettering industry information will be shared. Come tag along as we journey through the mentorship, the shows and the business of music with the 22nd Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

The 22nd Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is powered by Charterhouse, partnered by TV3, KPMG, DSTV and proudly brought to you by Vodafone, Together we can.

Miss Malaika Ghana 21! 30 Make It To Finishing School

Published

on

‘Winning Miss Malaika, or simply just participating has changed my outlook on life drastically. One thing I took away from the experience is that in as much as outer beauty is important, the growth that happens inwardly is what will make you stand out, and that is exactly what Miss Malaika gave to me and I believe to other ladies who ever participated’ – reigning queen, Miss Jasmine Djang.

In a little over 80 days from now a new queen takes over from Jasmine Djang. But the journey to that unveil as history would have it has never been easy. From heart breaks to tears and cheers, shouts of joy to acts triggered by sour grapes and more, this pageant has seen it all; and on Saturday 17th July was no exception as more than 200 wanna-be queens thronged Tomreik Hotel in hopes of being a part of Miss Malaika Ghana 2021! 45 ladies made it to the next stage.

Prior to this very first encounter, pageant organizers Charterhouse launched the social media campaign, “Tag A Queen” which saw many Ghanaians post photos of ladies they deemed fit to wear the crown and tagging the various Charterhouse handles with the hashtag, #Malaika21. That process saw some 32 gorgeous ladies automatically graduated to the semifinal stage of auditions which will look a little past the beauty of face and figure and test for intellect and more.

Sitting in on the search panel with the task of selecting the most beautiful among the lot on Saturday 24th July were Showbiz personality, PR Practitioner and Entrepreneur, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku with award winning actor, fashion designer, Elikem Kumordzi and Miss Sharon Coffie, Miss Malaika 2012 Queen. Between the three astute judges, 30 beautiful, intelligent and charming ladies graduated to the final stage which is the FINISHING SCHOOL. According to organizers, 20 out of the 30 will enter the competition proper and would be out doored to the general public.

Miss Malaika Ghana shows this and every Sunday at 8pm on GH One TV and at 9pm on MX24 and EBN TV.

It is a Charterhouse Ghana Production brought to you by Nivea, Frytol, Royal Senchi Hotel, GTP, Malta Guinness, Kenya Airways, Tomreik Hotel, GhOne TV with support from Aspire Destinations, Lux, Geisha, Lucozade and Verna Water.

Wild Cards Revealed! Maria and Pere Survive First BBNaija Shine Ya Eye Live Eviction Show

Published

on

Ebuka took on the first BBNaija Shine Ya Eye live eviction show Sunday night, but there were no goodbyes – just surprises!

After the ladies and gentlemen of the house settled in last Sunday, Biggie threw in the second twist of the season. He told the housemates that two from among them were Wild Cards and they had a week to figure them out. If they successfully did this, the two Wild Card housemates would be evicted immediately. Failure to do so meant they get to remain in the competition and battle it out for the grand prize.

The housemates investigated, questioned, and tried hard to figure out who they were all week long. The viewers were not left out in the guessing game until Thursday when Biggie revealed that Maria and Pere were the Wild Cards.

During their Diary Room sessions Sunday afternoon, majority of the housemates put forward Liquorose and Jaypaul as their prime suspects, to the amusement of viewers. However, the cat was let out of the bag when Ebuka asked the Wild Cards – Maria and Pere – to reveal themselves. This left the housemates surprised but impressed at how well they concealed their identities.

The game has now shifted gears as both Maria and Pere are officially in the game to win. Ebuka revealed that both of them will have exclusive nomination powers on Monday night, when the housemates exercise their nomination rights for the first time this season. Nominations will begin after the Head of House game scheduled for 6pm.

Abeg is the headline sponsor of Big Brother Naija season 6, and the associate sponsor is Patricia.
