One of such events, Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment – www.nydjlive.com gathers is the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture’s interest in hosting the 2019 MTV MAMAs.
Initiated by the former Minster of the sector Hon. Catherine Abelema Afeku (MP), a response document from the Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Viacom International Media Networks Africa, sighted by Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment – www.nydjlive.com describes the MAMA as ‘a potent platform to further highlight Ghana’s rich cultural heritage, amazing hospitality and beautiful destinations to the world”
It lists a number of advantages Ghana stands should an agreement be reached. These advantages included Youth Empowerment, Commerce, Public Relations and Tourism.
It is however unknown if the Member of Parliament for Prestea Huni-Valley and Minister designate for Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Barbara Oteng Gyasi would continue the conversation initiated by her predecessor or let go.
Created to deliver a powerful and positive narrative of Africa by celebrating and showcasing the best of our talent, achievers and destinations to the world, the MAMAs is considered the biggest award show on the continent and holds a potential reach of over 1 billion people across MTV channels and digital platforms around the world.
