The CEO of Big Events Ghana, organizers of the annual RTP Awards, Prince Mackay talks about the AFRIMA. He lashed out at the organizers of the AFRIMA for their failure to include just a single slot for gospel music.
He made these statements in an interview with Zionfelix. Moreover, according to him, gospel music as a genre of music is a great pillar for the continent. Therefore, he does not understand why the organizers of the awards decided to turn a blind eye to it.
“I was so disappointed that organizers couldn’t just provide one slot for gospel music…Africa has many top gospel acts…”
Also, Mackay called on the ministry to help with a new awards scheme for gospel music he introduced.
He further made the point that what the ministry did for AFRIMA is just for secular music. Therefore, they should do the same for gospel music by investing in his awards. Prince Mackay further told Zionfelix that his awards scheme has been already launched in Accra. He also revealed that the scheme has already signed partnership deals with top media houses like EIB, Praise TV, DSTV, and PBN Africa.
