    Full List of nominees for Ghana Music Awards USA 2021
    The nominees for the 2021 edition were unveiled at a ceremony on April 17, 2021

    The nominees for the 2021 Ghana Music Awards USA were announced at the weekend, ahead of the main ceremony in New Jersey this August.

    Now in their second year, the awards are organized by Don’s Music Production in partnership with Highlife Media USA. They operate with the vision of “encouraging and recognizing Ghanaian musicians in the diaspora, especially in the US to actively participate in promoting and celebrating Ghana music.”

    The nominees’ announcement arrives three months after Ghanaian broadcaster and artist manager Kwasi Aboagye was named as the new board chair of the awards platform.

    This year’s edition will reward music released between January and December 2020 in more than 30 categories.

    Sarkodie leads the nominees with nine nods. He is followed by Kuami Eugene with eight. Stonebwoy, KayKay Amponsah and Millicent Yankey secured seven each, while Melody Frimpong, Jayhover, Jamin Beats and 3Music Awards 2021 Artist of the Year KiDi were shortlisted in six categories apiece.

    Sarkodie who won the Artist of the Year Award last year, will be hoping to defend his title against KiDi, Fameye, Stonebwoy, Kuami Eugene, Mr Drew, Medikal and Diana Hamilton.
