According to talent manager and music executive Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh, this year's Ghana Music Awards promises to be "a year of debuts", especially for the following entrants: OlivetheBoy, Banzy Banero, Mophty, King Paluta and XlimKid who all had at least one hit record in the year under review.

"I think we can also expect young artistes like the silky female songstress Darkuaa and viral sensations SevenKizs, Oseikrom Sikanii and Safo Newman to enter the Ghana Music Awards scheme this year, Boadu-Ayeboafoh added.

Last year, Black Sherif took away the most coveted Artiste of the Year award after a keenly contested battle with established names like Piesie Esther, Stonebwoy and Joe Mettle.

I'm looking forward to seeing as many new names as possible considering how explosive 2023 was for young Ghanaian artistes, Boadu-Ayeboafoh added.
