Ghana DJ awards - list of nominees and winners 2018

The awaited Ghana DJ awards 2018 just happened and it is on everyone’s mind. A deck jockey, simply known as a DJ is a person who has a knack for music and then uses it in conjunction with use of audio machines and turn tables to create a mash-up of songs in a steady flow. Normally, this would be for a concert, radio or TV station. Frankly at this point, you will find a DJ at virtually any party.

Ghana DJ awards - List of nominees and winners 2018


Music is naturally a big part of human existence and it plays a massive role in portraying messages to the masses or simply entertaining masses. While the artistes do their own creative work on their individual songs and albums, the DJs are the ones to integrate songs into a beautiful medley of all or favorite songs and promote these songs to rise to popularity. That is what makes this line of work equally a creative as well as a technical venture.

Ghana DJ awards 2018

Like any other path one might take, ‘DJ-ing’ is a journey that takes the best and most passionate in their work. It takes patience but once you get there, the fruits are tasty and worth the wait. You ask the Ghana DJ awards winners 2018. It was a spectacular event with an energy that only DJs can bring. There was a good balance of glitz glamour and a lot of authenticity throughout the event.

The event that was long awaited brought together Ghanaians from different regions of Ghana and took place on Saturday, 5th May. Each nominee brought with them fans and the energy and cheering kept the event alive. The winners of Ghana DJ awards were clad in beautiful and well-tailored garments and it was simply ravishing to see the passion coupled with joy on their faces.

The process of making this event a success begins long before the actual day of the awards. The first step usually is for the “chosen” to be announced in the Ghana DJ awards nominations. This simply is a list of Ghana DJ awards 2018 nominees. The Ghana DJ awards has a total of thirty seven categories. The categories can further be subdivided into two groups. These include the regional categories as well as the national and international categories.

Once the chosen are announced, which was done earlier this year in April, they then go ahead to promote themselves to their fans who then go on a voting frenzy and it’s basically the best man wins from this point.
