The second edition of the reggae and dancehall music awards show, Bass Awards, has been launched in Accra.

Nominations across various categories have been snapped up by some of Ghana’s fairly contemporary reggae, and dancehall acts, as well as songs by artistes who necessarily don’t experiment with the genre wholly.
