The ultimate Artiste of the Year category has Black Sherrif, Stonebwoy, Piesie Esther, Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Camidoh, and Kidi vying for the coveted prize.

Each of these artistes has made a significant impact on the Ghanaian music scene over the past year, and it will be exciting who takes the title Kofi Kinaata, the reigning Artiste of the Year.

According to Founder of Ghana Music Awards, USA (GMA-USA), Don D, a lot of preparations have gone into making this year’s event sponsored by TapTap better to mark the scheme’s growth in the last four years.

Don D, real name Dennis Boafo told Graphic Showbiz the score mark for GMA-USA has always been high and the team was not ready to drop its performance.

“We are not ignorant of the fact that a lot is expected from us even though we keep raising the bar and setting new pace in the Ghanaian entertainment industry in the USA. We have come far and we know all eyes are on us.

“And for that, we are making earnest preparations and we can confidently state that, this year's event will surpass previous years. For instance, the entire production of the event will see a huge and massive revamp”, he said.

GMA-USA is aimed at celebrating Ghanaian artistes and musicians in Ghana and those based in the diaspora, particularly the USA. They are duly rewarded for their craft in the year under review.

Last year’s marked the fourth edition of GMA-USA which was hosted at the Lincoln Theater in Columbus, Ohio. It was a star-studded event with deserving winners in attendance.
