Eight Category winners received a recording deal of a full sponsored EP/Album courtesy of a partner while FEMA presented Gift Vouchers to the Most Voted For Nominee.

"Also the positive reports from nominees and winners about opportunities and chances that have opened up for them to improve and upgrade their craft in different ways both locally and outside the country. We give God the glory," he said.
Adding "This year's milestone has given us more confidence as a team to think beyond as we put plans underway for our forthcoming activities in 2023,"
