The Galaxy Music Awards
An American Dancer and Choreographer, Twyla Tharp, once said, “I had always seen myself as a star, I wanted to be a galaxy”. At the Galaxy Music Awards, we focus on making Galaxies out of the musical stars around and amongst us. The South-East/South-South has produced superstars that have put Africa on the map.
The GMAs was initiated in 2018. In its first and second glamorous editions held at Presidential Hotel and LA Kings event centre, respectively, Port-Harcourt based artistes, locally and internationally, were awarded in the glamorous event. With the damaging effects of Covid-19, the third edition recorded more success with an array of superstars featuring in a virtual experience.
The GMAs aim to encourage and motivate young entertainers in their respective creative areas; especially Music. One of our core goal is to develop a business-minded entertainment community by drastically reducing unemployment amongst creatives. We plan to do this by shinning the light on our creatives. We work to ensure their talents create jobs for them (Musicians, Influencers, Producers, Artiste managers etc.), and integrate other South-Southern and the South-Eastern States to create an alternative industry.
