The GN Bank Awards is back as People’s Choice Awards Ghana. SpyderLee Entertainment organizers of the awards unveiled the new name during a special stakeholder and media event at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel in Accra.
The People’s Choice Awards Ghana is a scheme which seeks to award and celebrate individuals and organizations which have contributed as well as those that continue to excel in their various fields towards the development of the Ghanaian Arts and Entertainment industry.
Speaking to the media Mr Chris Koney, Awards Administrator said that the move was to stay off the controversy that rocked the scheme when it debuted in 2015.In 2015 a legal tussle between Spyder Lee Entertainment and Evolution International over the name People’s Choice Awards led to a change to GN Bank awards. The scheme took place subsequently but Spyderlee were left with brand reconciliation issues to solve hence now settling on GH People’s Celebrity Awards.
The event is scheduled to take place later this year according to the organizers.
