The virtual Exclusive Men of the Year Awards (Emy Africa) 2020 will have a touch of excitement to it as some of Ghana’s biggest acts including Efya, King Promise, Joe Mettle, Tagoe Sisters and Akwaboah are gearing up to thrill audience with spectacular performances.
The annual event is set to go virtual for the first time this year since its inception five years ago due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down most award ceremonies on the continent. The ceremony will air live on Joy Prime at 8 pm GMT on Saturday July 4.
Amongst this year’s set of nominees are Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, Clemento Suarez and Peter Sedufia contending in the ‘Man of the Year’ category with blogger Zionfelix nominated in the ‘Pav Ansah Communicator’ award alongside media personalities Giovani Caleb and George Addo Jnr of the Multimedia Group.
The award scheme which recognizes distinguished African men from all spheres of life has over the years honored a slate of celebrated male figures in the society ranging from Former President John Agyekum Kufuor to business executive Dr Ernest Ofori Sarpong, who received the Ultimate Man of the Year title last year.
Long-running host for the ceremony Nathaniel Attoh (2016, 2018 and 2019) is reprising his role once again this year. He will be joined on stage with his partner from the first edition Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku.
