Liberia Set To Host Music Awards

By In-house Nigeria

On 24 February, music lovers will have an opportunity to see Liberian acts receive rewards at the Tunes Liberia Music Awards.

Voting for the awards took place from 3 to 30 January, with 50% of the final result contributed by fans. The other half will be made up by a selected panel of judges.

The event is organised by the Tunes Liberia website, which was established in 2015 by tech entrepreneur Elvis Juasemai.

“I realised how popular Liberian music had become,” Juasemai told the Liberian Observer. “But despite the growing demand, I could hardly find them on the Internet, which severely limited their reach.

“We were trying to solve the massive problem of lack of access to Liberian music and lack of digitalisation for the music’s record keeping, situations in my mind that devalued musicians and their music.

“But the thing has gradually changed since Tunes Liberia was established because no matter your location, you can easily access Liberians music.”

The awards’ organising team said: “Nominees were selected based on hard work and consistency through the year and your tireless contributions to the growth of the Liberian music industry. The selection was based highly on merit rather personal friendship or any kind of preference.”

The Tunes Liberia Music Awards will take place at Centennial Pavilion in Monrovia.
