Charterhouse Ghana, the organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in a press conference yesterday in Accra stated categorically that they have not included ‘Gospel Album of the Year’ category in this year’s awards because in the year under review, not many albums were released, thus not advisable for its inclusion.
However, commenting on the issue Gospel songstress Ewura Abena popularly known for her hit song ‘Agye Me Nkwa’ featuring Nacee said most Gospel musicians just like any other musician in Ghana last year faced many production challenges including ‘dumsor’ and general economic hardship.
She further added that most Gospel musicians just like her, record their albums live and that fueling a plant or generator to fast track production comes at a higher cost.
Ewura Abena who is currently in the studio recording her third album suggested that the organizers should be considerate on such issues when they come up in the future. She also encouraged her colleagues in the ministry to keep doing the sacrificial job they are doing for humanity.
