Gospel songstress, Patience Nyarko has shared her sentiments over this years Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Speaking on Power FM in an interview, the Gospel singer said she was clearly robbed because her song ‘Obi nnyane me’ was more popular than Joe Mettle’s ‘Boo noni` which eventually won in that category.
Joe Mettle admitted this in an interview with Agyeman that indeed Patience Nyarko’s ‘Obi nnyane me’ was much popular than his worship song that topped all gospel songs in the year under review.
Furthering her stance in an interview with Agyeman Prempeh (Agyengo), host Power Drive, Patience Nyarko said she obviously can’t think far for the daylight robbery visited on.
“I was clearly robbed. ..I think TV3’s Mentor programme is very credible than the VGMA,” she declared, saying that her life does not depend on the award.
“Gospel is not about awards but you know, the awards are to motivate. I am not depending on the awards though. I believe the hypocrisy has become too much and I will not keep quiet because as a Christian, you don’t have to keep things to yourself but voice it out.”
According to her, the popular television programme ‘Di Asa’ aired on Atinka TV is very credible than Charterhouse’s award scheme.
She said in the past, she did not talk about her loss because he thought she was becoming better by the day and hoped her hit song, ‘Obi nnyane me’ would win an award.
When asked if she would want to be part of the VGMA after discrediting the annual event, Patience said: “I will speak but if Charterhouse thinks I have spoken out and for that matter they won’t nominate me again that’s fine.”
