There has been speculations by a section of Ghanaians both in the country and the diaspora on the possibility of the Awards scheme coming off this year due to the recent Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other Black nationals living in South Africa.

The organizers have however released a list of nominations amidst the contemplations indicating the likelihood of hosting the event.

Last year, Dancehall Musician Stonebwoy was adjuged artiste of the year GMA-SA.
