Organisers of the 3Music Awards have postponed their upcoming fan festival scheduled to be held at the Accra Polo Club on Saturday, March 14, due to the outbreak of Coronavirus in Ghana.
The event was a celebration of music and a day for patrons to get to know nominees ahead of the main awards event on March 28.
In a press release, the CEO of 3Music Awards, Sadiq Abdulai Abu, said that his institution and partners are prioritizing the safety and well being of its patrons.
“This decision is also meant to complement ongoing precautionary efforts by the state and other interested organizations,” he added.
Mr Abdulai Abu, however, added that if the country is able to combat the virus, the Fan Fest will be held in April.
Regarding the main awards night, he promised to give details of the decision they are taking in some days.

After consultations in the past few hours, 3Media Networks, its key partners, The Multimedia Broadcasting group, EandE Ghana, Fantasy Entertainment, the board and sponsors, have decided not to go ahead with Saturday’s Fan Fest at the Accra Polo Grounds due to the Corona Virus outbreak in Ghana.
As a forward-thinking organization that prioritizes the safety and wellbeing of its patrons, this we believe, is the most humane decision to take.
This decision is also meant to compliment ongoing precautionary efforts by the state and other interested organizations.
The Fan Fest will now be held at the earliest in April.
Further details with regards to the main awards night will be communicated in the next few days.
