Our VGMA Watch Party Essentials: The Difference Between “Fun Night!” & A Flop

Chris Attoh and Naa Ashorkor

The VGMAs are this weekend and it’s the perfect opportunity for you to invite some friends over and have a fun night with that friend group. In fact, if you’re feeling up to it and you have the space, you could even make it an open invitation. Either way, here are the essential items you’re going to need for a VGMA watch party on Saturday night.

Oh and if you don’t already have a TV or a way to get one before this weekend, then err … maybe just no watch party?

Good Speakers

It’s the VGMAs. It’s not just a night of spectacle where we see some of our favourite celebrities in the most ridiculous clothes they can muster. The VGMAs is also, more importantly, an audio experience. Sure you can hear the music through your TV speakers, but there’s a difference between hearing and experiencing.

If you don’t have a pair of good speakers already, don’t worry about it. Here are some good speakers for under GHC100, with express shipping so you’re guaranteed to get them before the main VGMA night.

This is portable with good reviews (GHC98.00). And this has similarly good reviews and comes with a remote(GHC97.00).

If you’re on campus, and you don’t drink, don’t start because of a VGMA watch party. However, if that’s not you, then a bottle or two of booze can be mixed with some juice to make punch for your guests. The alcohol is going to help everyone loosen up and make the entire night more fun.

Get Some Finger Foods

Nothing makes Ghanaians happy like the promise of Item 13, even at a VGMA watch party. Ordering some finger foods and setting up a snack table will instantly take your watch party from okay to great. Of course, you also want to make sure that you’re not inviting more people than you have food for.

Prepare The Guest List

Finally, no watch party would be complete without some guests. If you want to keep things intimate, then you can go ahead and just invite your closest friends. However, if you’re looking to turn it into a small event, then you it makes sense to make some custom invites that you can put out on your social media. Canva.com is a great service that you can use to make a quick social media poster for your watch party.
