Ghanaian 16 year old Afro dancehall musician Dhat Gyal headlined the 2017 MTN FA Cup Awards held in Accra on Wednesday night at the M Plaza Hotel.
The musician who has been nominated in the 2018 upcoming Ghana music awards under the unsung category performed to her popular mashups and single track titled “Any man na man”.
Though the event was full of sports fans and people who have little interest in music, Dhat Gyal was able to get top executives of football dancing along her performance.
The seventh edition of the MTN FA Cup Awards was held at the M Plaza Hotel to honour outstanding and deserving players, coaches, match officials and other significant individuals in the sports fraternity.
Dhat Gyal sometime last month expressed profound gratitude towards Nana Appiah Mensah during her performance at the maiden edition of the Ghana Fashion Awards which was held at the La Palm Royal Hotel on Sunday 25th March, 2018 for offering to sponsor her education.
According to her, she was unable to continue her education because her mother who was her backbone, passed away.
Upon recommendations and proposals by Socrate Safo, Director of Projects at the National Commission on Culture, Nana Appiah Mensah decided to put her ‘Dhat Gyal’ on the Zylofon Arts Fund to see her through her secondary education.
The Zylofon Arts Fund is a scheme structured to support the various creative arts arms of the nation both locally and internationally, to boost the prominence of the Arts and Tourism in Ghana.
“I am very glad for the scholarship from Zylofon Media. I will be forever grateful to the CEO of Zylofon for his kindness and support”, she added.
