IMG 20170426 WA0013 A Director of the Golden Movie Awards Africa (GMAA),  Mimi Andani has announced that the 2017 edition of the awards will be held on 8th July 2017 at a venue soon to be announced in Accra. “We are very delighted about the third anniversary of the awards and we are looking forward to it,” she said. “We have taken the feedback from the previous event in good faith and although we had a great show last year, we intend to even make it greater come July 8th.” Ms. Andani made the announcement when she addressed journalists and bloggers during the media launch for the event held at the newly established International Students and Guest Centre at Teiman near Abokobi on Tuesday. She called on filmmakers in Africa who have works produced between 1st January, 2016 and 31st January, 2017 to submit them for consideration in the 2017 edition of the awards. “The process of the GMAA begins with the opening of entries for filmmakers to submit their works and this year has been no exception,” she said. “Since April 1 we have been asking filmmakers in Africa and the African diaspora to submit their works and thus far we have had encouraging response from across the continent. This will go on until 10th May when entries will close officially.” She took the media through the procedure for submitting of films for the GMAA as below:

  “The scheme is accepting films of all genres and lengths with any official language or subtitled in any official language. All films presented shall be watched by the Selection Committee and a shortlist made based on the awards’ criteria for the consideration of the Grand Jury,” she emphasized. According to her, the theme chosen for this year’s celebration was “Empowering the African Filmmaker”, because they believe there is the need to empower the African filmmaker in all aspects and that they “shall use the occasion of the 3rd anniversary of the GMAA to do so.” “As part of empowering the African filmmaker in the 3rd year of the GMAA, we shall give special recognition to three film industry personalities who have contributed immensely to the growth of the African film industry over the years in different roles. These three people who will be selected by our eminent jury would be recognized and rewarded on the night of the main event.” Ms. Andani also revealed that the scheme would reward those who have been loyal to it over the years. “We shall reward three people who have been part of the audience at all the three Golden Movie Awards Africa events. We have a database of those who have patronized the event over the time that we have been here and three of such people who would be at this year’s event would be heavily rewarded.” As part of exploiting the 3rd anniversary theme, there would be three ambassadors for the 2017 edition of the GMAA. “We are currently finalizing talks with these ambassadors we have chosen and when all is done we shall announce their names,” Ms. Andani told the media. The Chief Executive Officer of the GMAA Mr. Sosthenes Galevo, said the organisers of the event would seek to make it a better event every year to ensure that all stakeholders and partners get the best out of it. He said the event is a pan-continental one and as such they would try to ensure that all regional interests were well represented. On his part, the Communication Director of the GMAA, Mr. Francis Doku commended the media for supporting the scheme since its inception and appealed for its continued support. He also indicated, during question time, that a robust system of accreditation will be put in place so ensure that relevant media personnel would be accredited to cover the main event. The Golden Movie Awards Africa (GMAA) is an annual event that seeks to award excellence in movie making on the African continent and the African diaspora. Instituted and organized by NMJ Ghana and its partners, the GMAA brings together professionals in filmmaking in Africa once every year to celebrate, promote and reward those who have excelled in their area of the film industry.   For further information contact kindly Francis Doku via francis.doku@goldenmovieawards.com]]>

“It’s disrespectful to me, my team, my fans…” – JZyNo responds to Ruger’s snide remarks on ‘Butta My Bread’

Published

JZyNo

JZyNo had a mouthful for Ruger following the latter’s insinuation about the success of his viral song ‘Butta My Bread,’ featuring Lasmid.

 

The Liberian star’s response comes after the Nigerian singer took a jab at him in episode 10 of the Zero Conditions podcast in September titled “Born to Rule.” Ruger had no qualms in undermining the quality and effort behind JZyNo’s flagship song, casually saying: “Now if you want to blow, you go blow by mistake. Na by mistake dem dey blow. There’s– It’s not intentional anymore. You could just say your [song] blow on TikTok,” before proceeding to sing a snippet of the song and concluding, “Then, you don turn artist be that.”

In a personal video addressed to his fans, JZyNo hit back at Ruger, calling the ‘Asiwaju’ hitmaker’s comments disrespectful, amid other factual statements meant to expose Ruger’s snide remarks. “You know very well every artist put in work to get to somewhere, every artist. Not talking about JZyNo, who has been doing this for years,” the ‘Butta My Bread’ star said. He added: “The statement that Ruger made, for me, it’s disrespectful to me and my team and my fans, Dancegod Lloyd who did the challenge, the artist that I featured, Lasmid. And in fact, the entire Liberia and Ghana industry.”

WATCH HERE: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=264787739282807

It is uncertain if this will be the start of a feud between the two artists moving forward. Meanwhile, ‘Butta My Bread’ still boasts a strong presence on charts across the continent, having amassed over 100M streams since its release in April. The song has become one of 2023’s top hits, putting JZyNo at the vanguard of Afrobeats and his critics to shame. As he prepares to release his eagerly-awaited song with Camidoh ‘Eyes On You’ this week – following its postponement out of respect for the late Mohbad, JZyNo may be on the verge of delivering another indelible hit.

‘Eyes On You’ featuring Camidoh will arrive on all music platforms come October 6th. Don’t miss out.
