The event which was instituted 20 years ago, sought to foster the development of the Ghanaian music industry and reward those who have excelled in the five main music genres in Ghana, namely gospel, hiplife, highlife, reggae, dancehall and traditional music.
The organizers of the awards scheme in January rolled out plans for this year's edition with a call for entries for all works produced within the calendar year to be considered.
The VGMA, which will be celebrating its 21st edition this year, has over the years become the number one barometer by which good musical works are measured in Ghana.
