QwameGaby’s song Aseda got nominated for the Praise Song of The Year and he is up against the likes of Mary Agyemang, Joyful Way Incorporated, Odehyie Priscilla Agyemang, Frank Opoku, Piesie Esther, Obaa Joyce and Joyce Blessing.Despite the strong contention he faces from Joyce Blessing’s Di Asa and Piesie Esther’s Maseda Kesie, QwameGaby expressed confidence that Aseda will win the category.
“Getting a nomination means I’m a winner so I’m not threatened by other contenders but I will campaign for the votes as the award scheme requires.
Besides, this nomination is a sign of good things for my music career and I want to encourage my fans to vote massively for me to bring the award home,” he stated.
In March last year, the Chartered Marketer won the Gospel Song of the Year with his track, Fre No, at the second edition of the Volta Music Awards (VMA) and said there will be another victory.
