KiDi & Black Sherif Win Big at 3Music Awards 2022

Over the weekend, the fifth edition of the much anticipated 3Music Awards took place at the Accra International Conference Center’s Grand Arena in Accra, Ghana. The event was graced by the crème de la crème of the Ghanaian entertainment industry and honoured the most outstanding artists and industry players for the year.

Though the show was off to a rocky start with technical difficulties pushing back the start time, it is going down in history as one of the best award events in the country. There were performances from Black Sherif, Joe Mettle, Ohemaa Mercy, Kuami Eugene, KiDi, Mona Gucci and several others.

Taking things a step further from last year’s phenomenal virtual event, this year had 5 different stages in the arena and took about 270 people to make the production this spectacular.

KiDi was the biggest winner of the night taking home 6 awards including Artiste of the Year for the second time in a row, with Fameye’s “Praise” emerging as the Afrobeats/Afro-Pop Song of The Year. Kofi Kinaata won the Highlife act of the Year and his song “Thy Grace” won the Highlife song of the Year.
