Gospel musician Piesie Esther says winning the topmost Artiste of the Year award at this year’s Ghana Music Awards is a done deal for her since she has worked harder than her contenders in the year under review.
Speaking with Graphic Showbiz at the Nominee announcement party held at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) yesterday, March 18, the W’aye Me Yie artiste said her works in the last few months are a testament that she deserves the VGMA Artiste of the Year crown.
“Ghanaians know the work I put in last year. I was one of the busiest gospel artistes who played all the major gospel shows in Ghana including private gigs and in the churches.
“I had two successful shows in Accra and Kumasi and from the records, W’aye Meyie stands very tall among other songs by the other artistes.
“W’aye Meyie is a nationwide hit and very popular in every corner of the year,” Piesie Esther confidently told Graphic Showbiz.
Piesie Esther comes up against the likes of Sarkodie, Black Sherif, Camidoh, Stonebwoy, King Promise, Joe Mettle and KiDi, who is the reigning Artiste of the Year.
27 awards are expected to be presented at this year's VGMA which will take place at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) on Saturday, May 13.
