The sixth edition of the Awards will take place on October 22 at the Accra International conference Center where multiple outstanding media personalities will be honored for their immense work in the year under review on the prestigious night.
“Fast Break” has been nominated in the Television Sports Program of the Year category and Host Yaw Sakyi Afari is in line to win the Television Sports Show Host of the Year.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com, leader of the all conquering UG team was delighted with earning the prestigious distinction of being the first ever basketball television show to be nominated. “It’s a step in the right direction… promotion of basketball and other sports in the country” he said.
