THIS IS MR. LAWRENCE NII LARTE LARTEY "HE IS THE "INVENTOR" OF THE FIRST EVER GADANGME MUSIC AND FILMS AWARD".
*GADANGME AND EWE MUSIC AND FILM AWARDS* ( GAEMAFA)
W are the pacesetter (1ST) by awarding Gadangmes and Ewes musicians,film actors & actresses on larger scale through VOTING SHORTCODS and Apps which has never happened since Ga people migrated to Ghana in the 17 century.
Gadangme and Ewe music and film award "GAEMAFA" is also the first to present or appreciate the king of Togo- ANEHO "TOGBE AVAWORTOR ZANKLI LAWSON" with a trophy as Gadangme media company.
In the history of Ghana, Ojekoo radio station is the only music and film award organisation, that serves as a bridge (link) in projecting Ewes and Gadangmes through music and films.
The CEO Mr. Lawrence Nii Larte Lartey of GEM&FA said his inspirations came from the then Ga mantse (King) Tackie Tawiah I and he also said, it has been his aim to promote the Ga, Dangme, Ewe musicians and film makers by creating a scheme like this to project these talented artists to the world. He know by coming up with this, his scheme (GAEMAFA) can bridge the gap created in the Ghanaian music industry aiming at projecting the hidden talents of Gadangmes.
