Special awards such as Most Wanted Artiste, Most Wanted Song, Most Wanted Group or Choir, Lifetime Achievement Award, among others will also be given out.

CCMA has had a huge following across Christian circles and is often seen as an influential platform for the promotion and celebration of diverse forms of gospel music in Ghana and beyond.

After months of planning, preparation, media promotions and public voting which ended on May 16, all is now ready for the grand showcase.
