Over 400 personalities from all walks of life have been nominated by the general public for the 2017 Ghana’s Most Influential Awards (GMI).
Since the call to entry was opened in December 2016 to February 2017, thousands of Ghanaians have joined the race to select individuals who they feel have positively influenced their lives during the year under review.
Ghana’s Most Influential (GMI) Awards is an annual event aimed at recognizing and celebrating top 100 most influential Ghanaian personalities through public votes.
According to Naomi Nelson-Barnes, Head of Trade and Marketing at Global Media Alliance Broadcasting Company, (GMABC) the caliber of people nominated for the 7th edition of GMI Awards ranged from Sportsmen, Entrepreneurs, Statesmen, Philanthropists, Entertainers, Politicians and Religious personalities among others.
“The rate at which this event has grown over the years tells us the Ghanaian society acknowledges and appreciates men and women who positively affect their lives. We have collated the names of the various personalities who were nominated by the public. A board made up of editors, industry players and auditors will shortlist the over 400 names to 100.
Over the years, organizers of the GMI event, have empowered Ghanaians to select individuals who contribute positively to their lives in diverse ways. The 2017 GMI event will be held in May. The event is a Global Media Alliance initiative and organized by ETV Ghana.
