A warm glow of having to see something memorable and wonderful seem to settle on the anticipated audience as the event draws closer, when asked why he established the Ghana Music Awards Europe when there is a similar ceremony held in Ghana, this is what Eric McKaiser ? CEO and Founder GMA EU had to say:
?Ghanaian music is the eternal bond between millions of others like me settled abroad and our roots, motherland Ghana.
Over the many years I have been in the United Kingdom, I observed that it is the magnificent medium of Ghanaian music, which is an enduring and lovable link between Ghanaians in the Diaspora and their folks back home. Be they following the latest stars and songs, or cherishing old classics, the music lovers in Europe and else where are in close touch with the song happenings in Ghana.
By staging the Ghana Music Awards ceremony in Europe, Ghanaian entertainers would get the opportunity to acquire global exposure on the greater level, and as we continue to live in a global village, break the norm of our 4-Walled publicity for Ghanaian talents and acts not forgetting our rich culture which in the long run will attract investors into Ghana.
Also, audiences in the Europe will have the opportunity of seeing and partying with Ghana?s top performers, most of whom are so far unknown outside of Ghana especially to our children born in Europe.
Ghana Music Awards Europe among its many aims is to fund raise to support HIV/AIDS Orphans in Ghana.
Right from the conception, planning and execution of this mega event, my colleagues and I have, and will be leaving no stone unturned to make the Ghana Music Awards Europe ceremony a glamorous and historic event with panache.
On this note, I would like to wish all nominees the very best of luck, thank God for his love and mercy, The Ghana High Commission ? UK and Ireland, Musician Union Of Ghana, Ghana Tourist Board, and Sponsors for their massive support.
