EMYAFRICA 2020 WINNERS

EMY AFRICA AWARDS – 2020

Shining a spotlight on men’s achievements, winners of the 5th Annual EMY Africa Awards were announced on Saturday, July 4.

The EMY Africa Awards is produced by Carbon AV Ltd. Widely recognised as one West Africa’s premier and widely watched personality awards, this year’s edition was no different.

With more than 20 winners representing different industries, the awards were announced at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra ad broadcast worldwide.

More than 1500 nominations were submitted to the awards this year for consideration in categories including Man of the Year, Magnate Award, Man of Courage, Guardian Award, Woman of the Year, Young Achiever, Discovery of the Year, among others. Winners in the honorary categories were selected by a specialised judging committee, while the winners of the other competitive categories were selected through public and jury votes.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some tweaks were made to this year’s event. Most noticeable of all the changes was that only nominees and presenters were invited to this year’s event. All honourees and nominees were given different time windows to receive their awards so that at any point in time, not more than 80 people would be in the ballroom. This safety precaution pushed the duration of the entire ceremony to 9 hours.

Some of the other precautions taken were the demand for all attendees to wear face masks as well as temperature checks at the entrance. Automatic hand sanitising machines were also placed at vantage points.

This year’s ceremony was hosted by Nat Attoh and Naa Ashorkor, with world-class performances from Tagoe Sisters, Joe Mettle, King Promise, Akwaboah and Efya.
