The Organizers of Brong Ahafo Music Awards, J Black Code Events, have shot down false reports going viral that Joyce Blessing won the Artiste of Year at the maiden edition of the awards.
They clarified that Bono rapper, Kooko, was crowned as the Artiste of the Year at a ceremony which took place at the Tyco City Hotel Auditorium in Sunyani on Friday, September 21, 2018, so any other misleading information must be treated with the contempt it deserves.
In a statement copied to Newshuntermag.com, the Media and Communications Manager for J Black Code Events, Seth Wilson, revealed that Joyce Blessing rather won BAMA Gospel Artiste of the Year, BAMA Album of the Year and BAMA Songwriter of the Year.
Read The Full Statement Below:
Our attention has been drawn to a false publication by Julie Kanz of Hello-gh.com on 22nd September 2018 captioned “Joyce Blessing wins Brong Ahafo Artiste of the year.
It is unfortunate that an esteemed blogger like her has not got its publication right and effort has been made to her to take down the story or change the caption.
The Media & communications department of J-BLACK CODE EVENTS GHANA wishes to state in unequivocal terms that there is no iota of truth in that publication, please discard that publication as false. We don’t know her motive behind that.
We are officially informing you the media that Joyce Blessing is not BAMA artiste of the year. Joyce Blessing won BAMA Gospel artiste of the year, BAMA album of the year and BAMA songwriter of the year. BAMA artiste of the year 2018 was Kooko.
