According to Uwak Mike, the CEO of CLIMA AFRICA Magazines and Awards; “The 2022 edition promises to be the best of all editions; because the collaborations with partners from other African Countries will enable us reach more Impact makers and Artiste whom we couldn’t reach in the past. Moreover, the introduction of New Categories to celebrate Producers, Managers, Stage Performers, Gospel music legends etc. is also a boost on our profile”.

The theme for the 6th edition (EKO 2022) is AFRICA IS RISING. This is a clarion call to arise and take our position as the best gospel music industry globally. A call to see gospel artists unite, with one mind, heart, soul and spirit till we capture the world with our God-given talents for God.
