D Jay lands two nominations ahead of 2023 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards with smash hit ‘Balance It’
Talk about the 24th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards has already begun to spread like wildfire. And with fans flocking online to check out the newly released nomination list from Charterhouse Ghana, artists like D Jay are among those sparking such buzz. The sensational singer landed two nominations in two big categories for the upcoming event: ‘’’Best Afrobeats Song’’ and ‘’Best New Artiste’’.
His smash hit ‘Balance It’ was the obvious pick. It was one of the blockbuster releases of the previous year and as such, will compete with other popular tracks in its category: Camidoh’s ‘Sugarcane Remix’, Gyakie’s ‘Something’, KiDi’s ‘Champagne’, King Promise’s ‘Ginger’ and FBS’s ‘Jo’ for ‘’Best Afrobeats Song’’. There will also be tough competition from six other newcomers contesting with D Jay for the ‘’Best New Artiste’’ award.
Speaking to a source close to us, D Jay expressed his gratitude and excitement: ‘’The past year was really intense. There were many sleepless nights and the team and I worked super hard, so I am excited to see we were given two nominations. This is a huge boost for us after all the sacrifices we made. I’m thankful to everyone who never stopped streaming ‘Balance It.’ I want to win this award for all of you. Let’s make it happen!’’.
At only 21 years old, D Jay has been making waves in the music industry with his catchy and melodious Afrobeats songs. His biggest song, ‘Balance It,’ became a viral sensation on TikTok with over 100 million views and 40 million streams worldwide before attracting a verse from emPawa Africa boss, Mr Eazi on its remix last year. The song racked up over one million Shazams and is one of TikTok’s favorite songs for creating content.
D Jay is currently promoting his latest song ‘Morning Stress,’ which you can listen to here: https://empawaafrica.lnk.to/DJayMorningStress
Lamisi Honoured In The Netherlands
Sensational Ghanaian singer, songwriter, and performer, Regina Lamisi Awiniman Anabilla Akuka, known by the stage name, Lamisi, has been awarded in the Kingdom of the Netherlands for her exploits in alternative music and for promoting the rich Ghanaian culture to her global audience.
The musician was part of several distinguished individuals and other professionals in the diaspora awarded for flying high the flag of Ghana and contributing their quota to the country’s development in various ways.
The recognition of the musician by the Representative Council of Ghanaian Organisations in the Netherlands (RECOGIN) and the Embassy of Ghana in the Kingdom of the Netherlands happened on Saturday 11th March 2023 at Schepenbergweg in Amsterdam.
Presenting a plaque to the musician, His Excellency Francis Danti Kotia, Ghana’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of the Netherlands commended Lamisi for her great success over the years in representing her people and staying true to her culture, which is evident in her music, costuming, and performances.
“It is important we are doing this today as it shows great respect for you, the others, and the rules you have decided to live by. Honour helps us act in a way that lives up to high ideals, looks out for vulnerable people, and makes a way forward that is better than what has come before; better for everyone. We are convinced this is going to urge you to do more and we also believe that greater things are yet to come for you”, he added.
The ceremony was part of activities to mark the celebration of Ghana’s independence anniversary dubbed “Ghana @ 66 Celebration”, organised by RECOGIN and supported by the Embassy of Ghana in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and Akwaaba Holland. Lamisi gave an outstanding performance to crown the ceremony.
