Cape Town - Gospel group Joyous Celebration has decided to withdraw from The Metro FM Awards 2017.
In a post on Joyous Celebration's official Facebook account, the group explains the reason for the withdrawal: "As many may know we are all about the growth and development of up-and-coming artists which is our main reason for not entering music awards other than the DVD sales category at the SAMAs. Recently our label, Sony Music Africa, made an error and entered us into the Metros this year which we graciously withdrew from as we would like to shine the spotlight on the hardworking up and coming musicians in the industry."
The Juice reached out to Sony Music Africa for comment at the time of publishing.
