Mr. Frank Owusu speaking in an interview DJ Murphy Lee on Storm Fm Entertainment Extra said there is the need to motivate these people who are giving their all to serve the nation.
“It is necessary to award you guys for the great work that you are doing. In fact some of you guys are doing very well…so it is in order if we capture and reward the hardworking ones on the various radio stations.”
According to him, touring six (6) regions to explain the motive of the award scheme has not been an easy task.
He assured that his outfit will do whatever they can to maintain the credibility of the award scheme.
“We are considering so many factors to make the award credible. Some new entrants sometimes have doubts due to experiences they had with other people who were organizing similar awards. Most awards are dying off,” he stated.
To improve on the texting format which was a challenge for the organizers of the Foklex Media Awards in the previous edition, Mr. Frank Owusu disclosed that fans can now vote face book and whatsapp aside the traditional way of voting for a nominee through a short code.
The 2016/2017 edition of the Foklex Media Awards will take place at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi on April 1, 2017.
