The board of the prestigious Ghana DJ Awards, the biggest DJ event in Africa produced by Merqury Republic, has introduced an all-new special category to award DJs who exceptionally entertained music fans during the COVID-19 lockdown period.
With the lockdown being eased gradually, life is going back to being normal.
However, the immense contribution made to the entertainment industry and millions of homes by DJs during the dire lockdown period through social media will not be overlooked by the Ghana DJ Awards, hence the introduction of a special award by the board known as ‘THE LOCKDOWN DJ AWARD’.
Ghana DJ Awards recognizes DJs and musicians across over 20 categories.
Mechanics for selection of nominees for the Lockdown DJ Award will be situated on shortlisting of entries received by the awards board based on engagement with social media users.
The nominations are selected by Ghana DJ Awards’ board, voting academy which is comprised of fans and an esteemed group of entertainment professionals in the fields of television, music, social media, digital marketing, journalism, public relations, and creative arts.
Fans will be able to cast their vote for their favourite DJs via text, on ghanadjawards.org and both Twitter and Instagram @ghanadjawards designated hashtag.
