Deloris Frimpong Manso (Delay), Nana Aba Anamoah, Nana Ama McBrown, Stacy Amoateng, and Afia Pokua are just a few of the well-known female celebrities that will be honoured at this year’s Tasty Tom Ghana Outstanding Women Awards (GOWA 2021).
The organisers of the awards, ASKOF Productions, said this at a ceremony conducted at Metro TV to officially reveal the nominees for this year’s edition of the event, which is set to take place on October 1 at the opulent Marriot Hotel in Accra.
Women interested in social change and who have dedicated their time to serve humanity would be honoured at the awards ceremony.
This year’s event, which will be streamed live across all social media platforms, is expected to draw a number of notable figures, including politicians, celebrities, and creative industry leaders.
Nana Aba Anamoah, Gloria Sarfo, Deloris Frimpong Manso (Delay), Berla Mundi, Yaa Amoako Adu, Gertrude Kunde Kwallinjam, and Beatrice Mensah are among the nominees for Outstanding Woman of the Year.
This year, the organizers included two new categories: Outstanding Women in Oil/Gas and Banking/Finance, as well as the Shero of the Year category, which includes Tracy Sarkcess, Esther Kelly, and Deborah Kyei, among others.
Nana Ama McBrown, Berla Mundi, Nancy Adobea Anane, Stacy Amoateng, and Afia Pokua are among the nominees for Outstanding TV Personality of the Year this year.
The official awards website, www.askofproductions.com, has the complete list of nominees.
Mrs. Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, Executive Director of ASKOF Productions, stated her organization’s unwavering objective is to recognize women making significant contributions in their individual endeavors.
“AsKOF Productions is preparing to honor women who have played critical roles in our country’s economic and social development. “We are certain that more has to be done to recognize and honor women who thrive in their fields of work,” she said.
She did guarantee Ghanaians, though, that this year’s awards ceremony would be one to remember.
Mr. Kayode Akintemi, Managing Director of Ignite Media Group, one of the awards’ sponsors, described the collaboration as a privilege in their efforts to support women’s causes.
He stated that women around the world, particularly in Africa, are undervalued, and that more has to be done to change this narrative by giving women the recognition they deserve.
Afia Pokua (2018), Velma Owusu Bempah (2019), and Delay (2020) have won the top honor in the last three editions of the GOWA.
