At the unveiling ceremony, with the new leadership of Telecel Ghana present, Charterhouse announced that this year's edition will come off on June 21.

Robert Klah, the PRO of Charterhouse, outlined a tall itinerary of activities in the pipeline to unpack the 25th edition of TGMA this year.

The activities will include a school tour, a mega concert in the city that has yet to be announced, and a summit after the awards night.

At a glance, the 25th edition of the TGMA promises to be a mega showdown befitting the award scheme's growth.

Randy Walker, a music and marketing executive, told that the start of the 25th anniversary of the award scheme was a little bit underwhelming.

I think Vodafone Ghana's situation should have been a lesson to Charterhouse in their decision to name tag going forward. I believe it'd have served not only them but the entire industry well if it remained Ghana Music Awards without any brand preceding it. That notwithstanding, I think this year's will be excting, considering that the silver jubilee coincides perfectly with the 30 years of hiplife cleebrations.
