She acknowledged their efforts through the years, encouraging them to continue the amazing work they have been doing in the music industry.

However, she promised that she would be present on the night with her team to have a 'good time', and also pledging her unflinching support to the event.

The organizers on their path expressed their sincere joy to the Minister and promised to continue giving their best, all the time - for the good of Ghana.

Celebrating a decade since its inception, South African multinational mobile telecommunications company MTN Group Limited, formerly M-Cell, in collaboration with Ghana’s number one urban entertainment and music video channel, 4syte TV launched the 2019 edition of certified music video recognition scheme, MTN 4Syte Tv Music Video Awards (MVAS)
