The award was held under the theme: “More Than Music,” to recognise musical accomplishments in multiple categories including Afropop, hiplife, hip hop, gospel and alternative.

“More Than Music,”  according to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of 3Media Networks, Sadiq Abdulai Abu was an upgrade on the famed 3Music Awards mantra, adding that “Here for the Music, and aptly encapsulates the elevation in both the standards and make-up of the event this year.”
