Sierra Leone: One of Sierra Leone’s internationally recognised artists, Mos B, has won the Global Music Awards Africa in Accra, Ghana. It could be recalled that other Sierra Leonean artists were nominated at the Global Music Awards Africa. The nomination of our compatriots among other top African stars was welcoming news.
Mos B bagged the Humanitarian African Artiste of the year Award for his astonishing song, “War Against Corona”, which he did just after the outbreak of COVID-19 in China, in a bid to raise public awareness about the virus. The song went viral (BBC FRENCH MEDIA IN AFRICA HOME WITH ISHA SESAY VOA, etc.). This writer was so delighted to have seen Mos B’s War Against Corona played at the opening ceremony of the Global Music Awards Africa where top TV channels in Ghana and from other parts of Africa broadcasted it.
Global Music Awards Africa is geared towards celebrating Africans in the world of entertainment. Nominations were drawn from 20 countries in Africa and 32 categories were set aside to be battled for. Two Sierra Leoneans bagging two international awards is something good to write home about. The rate at which Mos B is excelling internationally is unprecedented. This is a win for all Sierra Leoneans around the world, and is worth celebrating.
