The event now has new organisers, with the new head DJ Alordia (Nii Ofori Tackie) quoted as saying, "We classify this as the first edition of Ghana Music Awards UK because, it’s the first time we are organizing it."

Mr Eazi and Shatta Wale lead the nominee list. Both artists have had a less than pleasant run with awards recently. Mr Eazi was shut out from the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. Shatta Wale has also had problems with organisers of the same awards.

Elsewhere, Nigerian artists dominate the awards' African Artiste of the Year award, as Wizkid, Patoranking, Davido, Olamide and Tekno have been nominated. South Africa's AKA represents his country on the list. Diamond Platnumz and Fally Ipupa complete the category.

The event, organised by Alordia Promotions & West Coast UK Entertainment, will take place at Gaumont Palace Broadway Wood Green London, with winners in over 20 categories to be announced.
