Last weekend, nominee list for 2020 VGMA was released for the various categories in the oldest music award scheme in Ghana. And as usual, it always come with its own brouhaha.
But quickly, these are the nominees for the Gospel Song of the Year and Gospel Artistes of the Year.

Mog Music – Hallelujah
Joe Mettle – Mehia Wo Yesu

Gospel Artiste of the Year
For the first time; a gospel artiste had nomination in the African artiste of the year award. Mercy Chinwo is competing with other artiste from across Africa.
Perez Muzik has been recognized for his record with Blema Tesaa (Rock of Ages) in the Record of the Year category.
Joe Mettle again had nominations for Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year with Wind of Revival; plus gospel categories nominations.
Diana Hamilton is a blessing to Christians all over. She has been working extremely harder over a period of time. A solid; plus right team members backing her keeps her right moving. Her nominations are well placed. She happens to be on the topmost ticket for the Artiste of the year award. Not just that; she was nominated for Songwriter of the Year and Most Popular Song of the Year with her hit; W’asem.
So to select three top artistes for a performance for a classic Christian event in Ghana right now, Celestine Donkor cannot be left out of the three. She is everything; very vocal, lyrical, magnificent performance and ministration.
Now to her nominations, she made it. She is almost satisfied with all her nominations except that, she is of the view to have been nominated for the collaboration of the year; which she feels Nhyiraba Gideon actually nailed it.
In addition to her gospel nominations, she earn nominations for Female Vocalist of the year, Best Video of the year and Vodafone Most Popular Song of the year with same song ‘Agbebolo’.
Efe Grace also received nomination for Female Vocalist of the year; MOG Music for Male Vocalist of the year and Best New Artiste of the Year; and Bethel Revival Choir for Group of the year.
Nacee’s album; ‘Time With God’ has been nominated for Album of the year.
We wish all nominees well!
