By God’s grace, this year’s promotion has been a top-notch one, it’s like we have turned the gear on three times than the usual way of going about it. It’s been very strong on the traditional media, am talking about radio and television, it’s been so solid and strong, and that is basically because of the trust the industry has with regards to the awards. You understand the enthusiasm is so high and strong and on the social media for the past two weeks, we have been trending at number one position, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as well, so it’s been good,’ he remarked.

We thank God for such a grace,… it’s not been by the efforts of Big Events Ghana alone but the most of it all is by his grace,‘ he observed.
