The Eastern Cape Music Awards (ECMAS) is the brainchild of Koko Godlo, a well-renowned talent scout who has produced big names in the entertainment and sports industries. Due to his vision and realising the need to nurture, provide exposure and to celebrate our own artists, the ECMAS first came to life on 17th October 2015, in an event that was categorised by glitz, glamour and the cream-of-the-crop when it comes to talent born and bred in the Eastern Cape.
