THE Public Relations Officer of the 3Music Awards, Obed Boafo has described the event, which came off on Saturday, May 2 at the Fantasy Dome, as an excellent one.
The 3Music Awards was held virtually, with no audience at the auditorium as the organisers complied with a ban on public gatherings announced by President Akufo-Addo as part of measures to combat coronavirus.
According to Obed Boafo, although there were a few technical challenges such as breaks in transmission, the show was awesome.
"We had a great night, it was everything we had imagined. The performers came good on the night, which was such a beauty.
"The feedback we have seen and heard so far points to something well done. This was completely novel to us but we managed to live up to expectation,” he told Graphic Showbiz.
