YOUR EXPERIENCE CAN PATTERN THE WAY YOU THINK

THE 3M MUSIC AWARD. THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, PART 1!

Leave a comment

For the past couple of years because of where i live at the moment and lack of my own means of transport, i hardly attend shows which eats into the early morning wee hours.

I had the invitation courtesy Sally Frimpong to attend the 3M music awards ceremony. I set out around 8pm to the Trade fair centre.

THE GOOD.
The atmosphere around the Fantasy Dome was enticing with cocktail from some beverage sponsors. The red carpet was well lit with our “celebrities” parading the corridors of the event grounds with their beautiful dresses and sometimes the overkill make ups.

The attendance was not bad looking at the big size of the auditorium. I was at VVIP section where we were served with small chops including pastries, khebab and water.

The sound especially whenever the live band was playing, was good from where i was sitting. Some performances were good especially Akwaboa and Adina, Kwesi Arthur and Mole,Medikal,the choreographers and some few others. Honoring Obuoba J A Adofo,Professor Kofi Abraham and Mark Okraku Mantey was good.

The stage design was so on point with lighting and LED screens to match.

THE BAD
The late start of the program killed the vim and euphoria that was to characterize the event. The MC’S too were boring initially with their long speeches coupled with Shatta Wale’s father boring speech as well.

Also allowing minors to perform after 12 midnight wasn’t the best for me. Was it child abuse? Coordination was absent at some point. There were too many music performance. Shatta also winning most awards at the night didn’t go down well with some people. That’s the beauty of award schemes. Some win and others lose.

THE UGLY.
The washroom had no attendants cleaning the place constantly. Lazy Ushers and the not paying tribute to fallen heroes in the music industry especially Professor JH Nketiah, Willi Roi and Nii Tei Ashitey of Wulomei who were buried on the day of the awards. Will come again on part 2 in terms of organizing, award recipients and the general overview.

Thanks
