Telecel Ghana Music Awards board makes changes to nominations after review

The Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA) board has reviewed the 2024 nominations list and made changes in response to input from different stakeholders.

This extensive review process was prompted by concerns regarding inaccuracies or omissions on the list, which was first released in March 2024.

The show’s organizers, Charterhouse, said in a press release that after reviewing all entries, the board corrected two entries: Kwaku Ananse by Amerado and Lonely Road by O’Kenneth & Xlim Kid.

Charterhouse explained that “Lonely Road,” which is nominated for Collaboration of the Year, was originally submitted as a featured work.

However, the management of both artists confirmed that “Lonely Road” was a joint project by O’Kenneth and Xlim Kid, not a featured track.

“The Telecel Ghana Music Awards Board noted this and has thus corrected the nomination to reflect Lonely Road, by O’Kenneth and Xlim Kid,” the statement read.

In the case of rapper Amerado, his song Kwaku Ananse garnered an additional nomination in the Most Popular Song of the Year category following the review.

Furthermore, the original version of the song replaced the remix for consideration in the Best Highlife Song award.

Charterhouse explained that “the Board considered and nominated the ‘Kwaku Ananse’ remix in the Best Highlife Song category instead of the song’s original version. This affected the song’s consideration in the Most Popular Song of the Year category.”

“The Telecel Ghana Music Awards Board has reviewed this and consequently nominated ‘Kwaku Ananse by Amerado to replace the remix version in the Best Highlife Category. The song has also been nominated in the Most Popular Song of the Year category,” the statement read.
