Ghana DJ Awards To Host Workshop; Leonora Buckman Encourages Females To Partake In The Seminar

Published

on

President of Women In Performing Arts (WIPA) – an umbrella organization for all females in the creative arts industry, Leonora Buckman, is urging more females to take up DJing as a profession in Ghana.

Leonora Buckman, who also serves as a board member of the Ghana DJ Awards has been a leading advocate in championing the cause of women in Ghana’s creative arts industry.

She lamented the dearth of female DJ role models in the country during an interview about this year’s Ghana DJ Awards on Peace FM’s entertainment review show.

She further stated that “though DJing is dominated by males, it is not a profession reserved for males. We, therefore, encourage female DJs out there to involve themselves in the nomination process. We believe that what a man can do, a woman can also do”.

According to research conducted by the Blogspot, Female Pressure; only 10% of performers at music festivals around the world are female and an even smaller percentage of women are on music label rosters.

Despite female DJs pumping out great mixes and working as hard as they can, the recognition from booking agents and promoters – and the subsequent gigs and success – remain elusive and for the few female DJs, they may have at some point felt like it’s close to an impossible task in front of them.

Due to the phenomenon stated above, Leonora Buckman encouraged females interested in disc jockeying to participate in the Ghana DJ Awards workshop which is scheduled for the 20th of November, 2020, in order to get well acquainted with the practice.

The workshop will discuss such topics such as how DJs can manage their funds, the importance of social media, sound management and brand positioning. The event will also include training sessions on how to operate as a DJ, select music, beat matching, and equalising music, as well as general education on sound and mood curation. Registration details for the workshop will be announced on Monday via Ghana DJ Awards’ Facebook and Instagram platforms. The workshop will start from 9am to 5pm (GMT).

The 2020 Ghana DJ Awards is however scheduled to take place on November 21, 2020.

Ghana DJ Awards – 2020 To Honor Outstanding Student Disk Jockeys

Published

on

The board and organizers of Africa’s biggest DJ festival, the annual Ghana DJ Awards event have introduced a new category, to recognize the efforts of student DJs who entertain their colleagues and fans during raves and events, both on and off-campus.

The “Best Student DJ” of the year award is part of the new categories introduced in this year’s edition of the award scheme, to encourage students who juggle the demands of life while going to school and working to earn their dues as DJs simultaneously.

This disclosure was made by Rev Azigiza Jnr, chairman of the Ghana DJ Awards board, on Peace FM’s entertainment review show. According to him, “the Best Student DJ category was created to reward outstanding student DJs who despite their inability to own expensive gadgets, are still able to rip the turntables”.

The goal is to motivate Student DJs to believe in the profession and also inform the DJing fraternity that education is key. A DJ can be professional and educated as well. To be nominated, one must be a student or recent graduate in good standing and be over 17 years.

Nominations for this year’s edition are selected by the Ghana DJ Awards’ board and the voting academy which is comprised of fans and an esteemed group of entertainment industry players. Fans will be able to cast their vote for their favorite DJs via text on ghanadjawards.org and on both Twitter and Instagram with a designated hashtag.

This year’s edition of the Ghana DJ Awards is set to take place on the 21st of November, 2020. More details will be communicated soon.
