Patience Nyarko says she will ‘collapse’ if she fails to win an award at 2016 Ghana Music Awards scheduled for Saturday, May 7 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Speaking on Accra FM, the singer who is nominated for a nominee for the Vodafone Ghana Music Award Gospel Song of the Year and Gospel Artist of the year, insisted that she deserved an award because she has worked very hard to maintain her good image on the gospel music scene.
“I will collapse should I not win any award at the VGMAs. I have worked tirelessly to reach where I am in my career and this year is no exception. Thanks be to God, after I realised my Wafom Kwan album this year, it has made a mark in the ears of the many listeners and topped almost all the music charts this year,” she said.
Her competitors for the Gospel Song of the Year Award are Supt Kofi Sarpong (‘Hour by Hour’), Kofi Gyan (‘Yoboyo’), Mary Owusu (‘Wo Nkwa Wo Awurade’), Obaapa Christie (‘Hyebre Sesafo’) and Nicholas Omane Acheampong (‘Aporsor’).
In the Gospel Artiste of the Year category, Patience Nyarko faces stiff competition from Obaapa Christie, Joe Mettle, Nicholas Omane-Acheampong, Supt Kofi Sarpong and Preachers.
