Here are five things you should know about this year’s concert dubbed “Unstoppable Edition”.

According to the organisers, the event will be held at the Grand Arena Conference Centre at Accra International Conference Centre (AICC). The Grand Arena Conference Centre, a 4000-seater auditorium, is located on the premises of the AICC and will be best remembered for hosting the 2019 VGMAs.
The host for this year is yet to be announced. Normally, Sarkodie announces the host through social media two or three weeks ahead of the main event. Nana Aba Anamoah hosted last year, Shatta Wale hosted in 2017 and DKB and Giovanni Caleb host in 2016. Looking at how dynamic the hosts have been, we expect a new face this year.
