People's Choice Awards Launched

The much-anticipated People's Choice Awards Ghana 2015 which will be held in Accra in March next year has been launched in Accra at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel in Accra.

The People's Choice Awards Ghana is a scheme which seeks to award and celebrate individuals and organisations which have contributed as well as those that continue to excel in their various fields towards the development of the Ghanaian arts and entertainment industry.

The event was attended by the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Dzifa Gomashie, the Deputy Minister for Local Government, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, representatives of the title sponsors of the awards, GN Bank (formerly First National Savings & Loans), executives from corporate Ghana as well as other personalities in the Ghanaian telecommunications industry.

The special guest at the event, Dzifa Gomashie, highlighted the role of government to ensure the development of culture, tourism and the arts industry in Ghana.

Speaking at the event, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Spyder Lee Entertainment, organisers of the awards, Edwin Kweku Edinkrah, elaborated on the essence of introducing the scheme, adding that 'at a time when the arts and showbiz fraternity is becoming a lucrative industry in other parts of the world, it is only appropriate to introduce initiatives which will challenge us to be able to compete globally. Hence, this awards scheme is to showcase our intent and ingenuity to encourage players in the industry.'

The public can from now to December 31, 2014 send the names of their favourite celebrities who excelled between August 2013 and August 2014 to the shortcode 1446 on MTN, Vodafone and Airtel to be part of the awards.
