The Organiser of the annual 3Music Awards, 3Media Networks, has announced the adoption and renaming of some categories.
The scheme is renaming Music Man of the Year category to Artiste (MVP) of the Year.
With the renaming of the category, the scheme’s topmost award has moved from Song of the Year to Artiste of the Year.
The board also approved for ‘EP of the Year’ ‘Best Alternative Song’ and ‘Emerging Woman of the Year’ to be added to the list of categories.
This, the organisers said, is consistent with the awards intentional policy to be all-embracing and also enable inclusion and representation for female artistes.
The ‘Rapper of the Year’ category will no longer award an artiste based on their rap performance on a song.
It has been redefined to reward consistent rap-based activities of talents within the year under review.
‘Woman of the Year’ and ‘Emerging Woman of the Year’ will now become the topmost awards of the Women’s Brunch, which comes off on 7th March in commemoration of International Women’s day.
The new categories and additions were made during the scheme’s annual retreat for the board and some stakeholders in Akosombo weeks ago.
The CEO, 3Media Networks has assured fans that entering its fourth year, the organisers of the award show are poised to deliver a solid event this year, leaving an indelible impression in the minds of industry and music fans.
“#The4th affords us the opportunity to not only honour popular music and the innovation we experienced last year following the outbreak of a pandemic but to also curate an experience that speaks to the now and future of music whilst celebrating our music history.”
“Most importantly, #the4th should be reflective of 3Music’s commitment for better representation and inclusion for particularly female talents,” Sadiq Abdulai Abu said.
The nominees of the 3Music Awards 2021 will be announced on Friday 12th February 2021 at 8 pm.
The nominees announcement will be aired on JoyPrime TV and Facebook on the 3Musicawards page as well as on YouTube.
The 4th annual 3Music Awards 2021 will later come off on Saturday, 27th March 2021 at 8 pm.
