The 2019 edition of the Ghana Movie Awards which was held at the National Theater on 20th December 2019 was not short of controversies and AmeyawTV captured it all.

The Ghana Movie Awards 2019 was marred by a number of incidents.
Like several shows organized in the country, this year’s Ghana Movie Awards commenced late – more than 4 hours behind schedule.

The red carpet which was scheduled to start at 6pm, started at 9pm and ended around 11pm. The show officially started around 12:10pm with host Afia Schwarzenegger making her royal entrance and had the crowd laughing with her monologue.

The topmost issue that prevented the success of the show was the sound technician’s decision to ‘kill’ the sound just as the MC for the event came on stage due to a debt owed him by the organisers.

The technician insisted that he be paid some arrears amounting to GH¢1,500 before he provides sound for the occasion.
Resorting to mobile money transaction, the organisers took the sound technician’s registered number and sent him one thousand Ghana cedis. Unmoved by the attempt made, the sound technicians insisted he is paid fully.
The organisers eventually added the remaining five hundred Ghana cedis and there was sound!
Other incidents which impaired the event organized by Fred Nuamah included the low patronage.
Also, at some point, the playbacks announcing the nominees for various categories failed to play.
Interestingly, actors who were nominated for some categories were asked to present awards to colleagues who beat them to it.
