On September 8, 2022, in Accra, the Universal Meritorious Awards presented Merqury Quaye with the title “Ultimate Entertainer Of The Year.”
The best MC, radio host, TV host, and music producer was recognized for his contributions to the African entertainment industry.
According to the award’s organizers, the renowned DJ and exceptional Hypeman have not only inspired and empowered DJs by founding and running the Ghana DJ Awards, now in its tenth year but has also given audiences all over the African continent impeccable entertainment.
In a statement, the program’s organizers also emphasized that Merqury, known as “the finest Hypeman,” has spent the past year serving as the official MC of the “Guinness Bright House” tour across the nation and leading the marketing campaign of the year, Guinness Black Shines Brightest.
As the host of the most popular late-night program on Ghanaian television right now, Hot Picks Show on Joy Prime TV, Merqury has carved out a perfect niche that allows TV viewers throughout Africa to take part in a virtual party in real time via Zoom.
He is credited with creating the idea because until his highly entertaining show was broadcast, Ghanaian television had never seen anything like it. Merqury entertains viewers from Sierra Leone on Hot Picks.
In addition, Merqury has emceed prestigious events like the MTN Music Festival and Wildland Festival, which were held in Shai Hills and Accra, respectively.
DJ Ohemaa Woyegye said of Merqury Quaye as he gave him the award live on Angel FM: “Merqury is a gem who is worth celebrating for his immense contribution to the entertainment scene in Ghana.
“In 2017, he spearheaded the “Pay the DJ” movement, which called for DJs to be paid fairly and equally. Merqury had the option to mind his own business, but out of compassion, he stood up for the entire entertainment sector.
From 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., Merqury Quaye hosts Cruise Control, a popular evening drive on Hitz 103.9fm. He also serves as the host of the Hot Picks segment, going by the nickname “The Turn Up General.”
