Joyous Celebrations withdraws from Metro FM Awards after nomination
South African Gospel giant Joyous Celebration recently the announced that they will be withdrawing for the 16th Metro FM Awards to take place on Saturday 25 February 2017. Joyous issued a press statement which was also posted on their Facebook page My Joyous Celebration.
Along with the statement, they explained:
“As many may know we are all about the growth and development of up-and-coming artists which is our main reason for not entering music awards other than the DVD sales category at the SAMAs
Recently our label, @sonymusicafrica, made an error and entered us into the Metros this year which we graciously withdrew from as we would like to shine the spotlight on the hardworking up and coming musicians in the industry.
We would like to thank @metrofmsa for honoring us with this nomination and would like to wish all the artist nominated, good luck
