2018 Balafon Music Awards snubs music producers on nomination list


The 2018 Balafon Music Awards has released its list of nomination and the category for ‘Best Music Producers’ is unavoidably absent!

We are not so sure why music producers will be snubbed at an award ceremony whose objective is to celebrate and recognize those who have contributed immensely to the growth of the music industry in Cameroon.

#BMA2018 however ditched the music producers category from its nomination list and instead recognized ‘Best Song of the Year’ which could go to any of the following artists:

Apparently, no music producer has come forward to ask why the category for those who work tirelessly in the studio to create music are not recognized, year in, year out by #BMA. Neither has the organizers managed to explain in a public statement why.

This is the fourth edition of the Balafon Music Awards and its been noticed that the award only sees the effort of the artist/performer and not the creators of the songs recognized each year.

Our question is, do the award for #songoftheyear go the performers or to the producers?

The Balafon Music Award 2018 is scheduled to take place at the St David, Bonanjo – Douala on December 12 and you’re not going to want to miss it.
