Whisppa LLC will later this year launch a new awards scheme dubbed Fan Choice Awards. This scheme according to the management of Whisppa LLC, will seek to award personalities and individuals across the various sectors of the entertainment industry and also give the general public the opportunity to vote for the things they like.
This, according to the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Eugene Ossei is a move to bridge the existing gap between fans and celebrities as the company prepares to launch its social entertainment platform Whisppa this year.
Whisppa seeks promote arts and entertainment in Ghana and also serve as the main digital distributer of music in the country. According to him, with the existing gap erased, fans will find the need to pay for songs by their favourite artiste. The Fan Choice Awards will be 100% public vote and the event is slated to take place in October this year at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Fan Choice Awards will have fans decide who wins in every single category as this is aimed at bringing some transparency in the voting process. Voting will also be 100% free and fans will be voting via the official website of the awards. Some of the categories will include; Favourite Daytime TV Show, Favourite Young Artiste, Favourite Radio Show Host, Favourite Entertainment TV Show Host, Favourite Movie, Favourite Telenovela among others. Fans will also get rewarded for their participation in the event. A brand new Hyundai i30 is up for grabs by the most interactive fanon social media (Facebook and Twitter). Some fans will also be rewarded with handsets among others.
This event according to Eugene Ossei, is like no other in this country and promises cause a drastic change in the way events are being organized in the country. According to him, this event is the only event where a true winner will be crowned as decided by the public. It will not be all awards and voting as the organizers intend to have a 5-city (Tema, Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi and Sunyani) tour across the country prior to the main event and this is dubbed the Fan Choice Experience Tour.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of Whisppa, Eugene Ossei the tour will be organized for fans to meet their favourite personalities and spend time with them. This he believes will go a long
way to improve the relationship between personalities and their fans. The event will have people from across the country attend in the capital.
Fan Choice Awards is not all about celebrating excellence and awarding people but a medium to find solutions to the problems facing the entertainment industry. According to Eugene Ossei, a symposium will be organized by the company after the awards to discuss information and data recorded from the event and to analyze which sector of the industry performed better or worse according to votes casted and to address those issues. This symposium will be attended by the various stakeholders in the entertainment industry, PR experts and expert marketers among others.
Organizers of the event are gearing up for a grand launch of the event in the coming weeks with the full list of categories and the launch of the official website. From all indications, Fan Choice Awards is certainly the awards to watch out for this year.
