-AFRIMA withdraws Hosting Rights from Ghana, Cites lack of commitment to fulfill contractual obligations.

Thanks to the youth and media of Ghana for their tremendous support. New host country to be announced soon.

The International Committee of AFRIMA has withdrawn the hosting rights from Republic of Ghana for the 2019 and 2020 editions of the AFRIMA Award.

Over lack of capacity by the Host Country to meet the financial and contractual obligations entered to on July 12, 2018, necessary to retain hosting the biggest music event in Africa.

The decision was reached on Monday, July 15 after several months of meetings and consultations with relevant stakeholders to remedy the situation with the expectation that the Republic of Ghana would provide concrete assurances and guarantees to discharge its contractual obligations for hosting the 2019 and 2020 editions of AFRIMA.

After its disappointing performance on the contract during the 2018 edition of the Awards held in Accra between November 21 and 24 which the organizers successfully put together against all odds.
