Joselyn Dumas Leads Medikal, Stonebwoy, and Many More At The 2018 I.A.R.A Awards.

The International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA) is a global Arts and Entertainment award scheme which has been in existence since 2014. The award scheme is aimed at lauding outstanding personalities and efforts in fields such as music, theatre, music/Tv and the fashion Industry.


Ghana first indirectly earned a slot on this prestigious platform last year, where UK based Ghanaian artistes like Eugy and the music duo 'Reggie and Bollie' were nominated for the Best Afrobeat Artiste and the Best UK Music Artiste respectively.

In this year's edition, there has been an utter improvement in the number of Ghanaians nominated for the scheme. According to the nominee list published via the official IARA webiste yesterday (10th July, 2018), there were nine Ghanaian-based personalities listed for nominations.  Michael Dapaah and Oswald Boateng - British based Ghanaians - were also nominated for Best young male artiste and Best Male Fashion  designer categories.

Joselyn Dumas earned three solid nominations with her amazing role in 'Potahto Potato', with Medikal following suite with two - Best International Male Artiste and the Best African music artiste which he competes against Stonebwoy and Efya. Ghana's 2016 BET nominee, MsVee was also nominated for the Best International Female category.

Other movie personalities nominated for the I.A.R.A 2018 were: Chris Attoh ( Best Actor); Adjetey Anang (Best International Actor) category for his role in 'SideChic Gang' and Zynel Zuh for the Best young actress category.
