Westline Entertainment, organizers of the prestigious Western Music Awards have opened nominations for the 7th edition.
The awards schemes has 29 categories in this year’s edition, taking out one category from last year. “The ‘Most streamed Artiste of the year’ became a challenge last year as Artistes were submitting conflicting figures from different streaming platforms.
There is therefore the need for a clear definition with concentration on which of the streaming platforms we will concentrate on to determine the winner so for now it’s out, pending the board’s final decision” Nana Kwesi Coomson, head of Public Relations of Western Music Awards noted.
Works of Artistes and other stakeholders from February 2022 to January 2023 are considered eligible for this year’s Western Music Awards.
