Ghanaian female gospel musician Patience Nyarko is confident of winning this year’s Gospel song of the year award at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Nyarko argues that her songs, Obi Nyanime’ and Ebobo Ba were the most popular gospel songs and most air played songs which makes her the nominee to clinch the award.
Speaking on Abusua FM with Nanahemaa, the songstress who was nominated last year but lost to her contender says, her song was the most sorts after gospel song of the year, placing her ahead of her contenders.
Asked why she featured Brother Sammy on her hit song, she explained that Brother Sammy was the right person his team wanted to be on the song hence the decision to collaborate with the Kumasi-based artiste.
”I’ve my first, second and third albums out but I’ve not featured any artiste on it so I decided to work with someone on this tune. If you’re a good writer, you would hurriedly know the right person for a song you’ve written so Sammy just came into mind after this song was written”.
Explaining further how she got her message for the song, Nyarko disclosed that ”it is a prophecy God wants to give to his children I was ironing and it just came”.
‘Obi Nyanime’ is a danceable tune that talks about how God surprises us with his mercy, blessings and goodness; sometimes when we least expect it. The song can be enjoyed by all at any given time, especially when used during Praises hours in churches.
The minstrel recently released her six track album, Atigya.
Patience who last year threatened to die if she does not win the award this time indicated that her comments last year was just a joke and wondered how people took it so serious.
She is this year competing with Joe mettle, Gifty Osei, Celestine Donkor, Nacee and Ceccy Twum for the Gospel artist of the year and Gospel song of the category respectively.
She further went on to say that she doesn’t want to be selfish and wish to come home with at least one award which is the Gospel song of the year.
Patience is pleading to her fans to vote massively for her to win the award this Saturday, 14th April 2018.
