DaFra Awards

The DAGAABA FRAFRA 2022 Award’s Night took place at Wa the Upper West Regional capital with much excitement and fanfare .

The awards night which was scheduled to take place in the night as usual of the event was rather held during the day due to the security issues within the Wa municipality in recent times especially the issue of killings and abduction

Although the venue was packed with personalities from all walks of life, one of the greatest moment of the event was when one of the top radio presenters of Gangaa fm 94.3 Mr. Pius Suglo also know as Bibilizaa Sankoma The Blessed Son won the overall DaFra Awards with three others from Jirapa.

Pius was chosen as the overall Best Gospel Artist of the year the 2022 Edition of DaFra (Dagaaba Frafra) Award Festival among other competitors

He was given 32 inch Tv set, a plaque and a Citation.

A citation was also given to the most active Foundation of the year “Glazoya Help Foundation” and it was awarded to Madam Gladys Zoyaari the founder who is a nurse in Jirapa Urban centre in the Jirapa municipality.

The other two award winning Artistes were Nicholas Mwin with stage name “Rapture” who also won the Hip hop artist of the year

Another person by name Libanus Ningwie with the stage name “Joe Crack” also won DaFra Music Artist of the year.

In accordance to the cordial relationship between the Dagaaba and Frafra (DaFra),as history have it they were once family relatives ( brothers ) and later departed with each other to different lands to settle due to some disagreements over dog head.

The disagreement resulted from food insecurity known as Hyperphagia in the 18th century when the brothers slaughtered the animal dog for a meal. This is how the dagaba frafra solidarity started.
