 Double-D to launch Black Citizenship Music Awards & Festival


 The launch of the maiden Black Citizenship Music Awards and Fes­tival is set for February in Accra with a focus on promoting Ghanaian culture and music.

The move, spearheaded by multi-tal­ented Ghanaian musician, Double-D, is geared at bringing Africans or black cit­izens together and share the vision to promote African culture and heritage.

In an interview with The Spectator Agoro, Double-D, (real name Emmanuel Emmel Kwame Edem Doe- Bruce) said, the event would also be held in the US this year as part of efforts to bring black descendants in the diaspora.

“It would feature speeches, music, dance and exhibition of great African culture to the people within and out­side the country,” he stated.

Double-D, who is also the Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Eml Entertainment Limited and Greater Accra Regional Organiser of Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) called on all black citizens to come on board espe­cially in February which had been set aside as the Black Citizenship Month.

Double-D also announced the release of his new Extended Play (EP) which has great urban gospel songs includ­ing ‘Thank God’, ‘Destiny Changer’, ‘Precious Lord’, ‘Alpha and Omega’ and ‘Destiny Child.’

“These are motivational songs that would guide the youth especially in this period where there are a lot of vices,” he explained.

“Let us promote our local songs instead of the foreign ones. There are great artists here in Ghana and the mainstream ones must support the younger ones to make it onto the big stages,” he added.

He also called on corporate Ghana and the government to invest in local talents in a bid to promote the country globally.
