The event which took place at Accra International Conference Center, Grand Arena on Saturday, March 27, had many moments that impressed fans throughout the night.
3Music Awards brought back the Flava Room which features OB Amponsah, Akrobeto, Lezky the Comic and Kalybos as hosts.
The quartet entertained fans with jokes and comebacks that had the audience at home tweeting about how much fun they were having.

They also took the opportunity to educate people on the history of some Ghanaian music genres including Hiplife, Gospel and Highlife.
They also interviewed guests who had been invited to the show. Some of the questions the quartet asked and the answers they got had fans entertained while they waited for the show to begin.
Many people fell in love with the awards show even before it began. The organisers prior to the show shared photos of the set they had prepped for the show.
Social media users were impressed with the work and energy put into creating the stage.

Really inlove with the setup and the production so far for the award show… it rocks shoulders with the BET and others #3MusicAwards21— WeirdFactsGH (@GhWierd) March 27, 2021
Aside from the set of the stage, others were taken aback by the set the organizers created for other artistes to perform on. KiDi and Mr Drew performed in a night club like set, Kofi Jamar performed on lounge like set among others.
Damn!!! 3music just set the bar high with the setting of Medikal’s La Hustle. I doubt any award show in Ghana can top this.— Joe🇬🇭 (@Papa_Of0ri) March 27, 2021
THIS LOVELY! @mrdrewofficial, @KiDiMusic, @KofiJamar and @SantrofiMusic teamed up to recreate the memorable #Osibisa moments.

3music awards bi mard herh see lighting set design and sound quality. Some people must be shaking now 🥺😂— I_directions (@Idirections1) March 27, 2021
Many fans seemed to have enjoyed the performances this year a lot as compared to last year. Because it was the team’s first virtual show in 2020 they had challenges especially with some of the perfomrces.
Thus this year (this is an inside secret) the organisers decided it was best to pre record some of the performances to give the audience the best experience and it seemed to have worked.
Many viewers were intrigued with the performances and the live band as well.
The Opening Act
Because in 2020, organizers had some challenges with performances and sound when 3Music Awards went virtual for the first time, some people were not certain what to expect in this edition.
However, after seeing the opening acts Medikal, Criss Waddle and Joey B perform, many were hooked to the show.
MEDIKAL spoil the 3music awards Aswear de performance Dey bee🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥— Benzman👻 (@amg_disturb0) March 27, 2021
Osibisa performance by KiDi, Kofi Jamar and Mr Drew
Organisers of the show, hit the jackpot choosing KiDi, Kofi Jamar and Mr Drew to pay tribute to the legendary Osibisa band.
The group graced the stage with ’80s inspired outfits for their performance. They performed Dance the Body Music and the Warrior.
Mr. Drew and Kidi’s performance is what Ghana music is all about🙌🙌🙌#3music award— Sitsofe Tsikata👻 (@SitsofeTsikata) March 28, 2021

The new artistes Ghana discovered in the past year continue to prove to many that they are in the industry to make Ghana proud.

For viewers who do not know Kobby Salm they did not expect his urban gospel style, nonetheless, they were impressed by his rap and his performance.
