Fresh Act Music Awards (FAMA) that is created to celebrate talented young, up-and-coming and campus artistes have added a new category to the existing categories – Fresh African Act Of The Year.
Speaking about this new category, FAM Awards CEO, Biodun Caston-Dada stated that, “we are trying to give the Award a continental feel because there are countless talented young artistes who are doing well across the continental, hence our resolve to introduce this category to celebrate such talents”,he stated.
The organizers further elaborate on the project by stating that many young acts are churning out great songs and are carving a niche for themselves across various genre of music despite lack of structure, funding and necessary business models.
It is in this stead that Fresh Acts Music Awards was born to give supports to these young artistes through periodical Seminars and Workshops. We strongly believe many artistes don’t even know why they are doing music aside their hunger for fame. Many just wanted to ‘blow’! FAMA is set to educate these artistes via our platforms.
We will also be hosting a monthly Rap Cypher to expose young and talented rappers/lyricists. These Cyphers will be hosted by established rap artistes and DJs.
The icing on the cake is the Awards ceremony where various fresh and upcoming artistes that have great songs and buzz within the year in review will be honoured at an elaborate awards ceremony in December.
The award was created last year but couldn’t hold due to logistics issues which the organizers believed should be sorted to avoid hitches and to make the debut an event to be remembered.
