Some have happened before. Sister Diana won with the same song. Joe Mettle also won with the same one song. I have even heard that Sarkodie has used one song to win before, and Stonebwoy has used one song to win. So I don't know why they are saying that I cannot use one song to win.

Piesie Esther also told Berla Mundi and Cookie Tee that she had no problem with losing to Black Sherif. She added that the fast-rising musician had worked hard and deserved the award. But people should stop downplaying her effort.
