TGMA updates nominations: ‘Lonely Road’, ‘Kwaku Ananse’ receive corrected categories


The 25th Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA) board has made some adjustments to this year’s nominations list.

This comes after the board completed its review of the nominations list after a week dedicated to identifying any errors or omissions.

The board has confirmed the list’s accuracy, with two notable adjustments:

“Lonely Road” by O’Kenneth & Xlim Kid, initially submitted as a feature, has been recognized as a joint project.

The TGMA board has updated the nomination to accurately represent the collaboration.

Additionally, “Kwaku Ananse” by Amerado has seen a change.

The board initially nominated the remix version for the Best Highlife Song category, which impacted its eligibility for the Most Popular Song of the Year.

However, after reconsideration, the original version of “Kwaku Ananse” will now be nominated in both categories.

The TGMA board reaffirmed its dedication to fairness and expressed its gratitude to the music community for their active involvement.

This development comes after several Ghanaian artistes, including Sista Afia and Amerado, expressed their concerns over the criteria used to select nominees.
