PREACHERS, PEREZ EARN NOMINATIONS AT THE VGMA’s – WHAT IT MEANS FOR URBAN GOSPEL

In an era where people measure musicians’ worth by the nominations and awards they have amassed, its only
right that hardworking and deserving urban gospel artiste are recognized for their works as well.

Last year saw urban/contemporary artiste like Kingzkid, Jonn winner, Minister Rapture and preachers earning
nominations at the 4syte Music Video Awards with Kingzkid eventually emerging the winner amidst much
controversy.

wait a minute! Kingzkid won the Best Gospel Video of the year at the 4syte MVA’s, the same category which
had Preachers. And how is it that the best at the MVA’s is not even considered for a nomination at the
GMA’s?

Nonetheless, it seems Urban gospel is stating a strong case for itself with preachers earning three
nominations at the VGMA’s which is considered to be the Holy grail of Ghana music ; Gospel artistes of the year, Best group of the year and Best Music video of
the year. Impressive!

 
Perez music was also nominated for the VGMA unsung category, a category in which Kingzkid was nominated
last year. Talk of the Unsung category what was all that? almost every urban gospel artiste felt they had
a chance, from names i have never heard of to others who genuinely did stand a chance. Honestly i got
confused at a point and stopped voting. maybe next time we should focus on putting our best foot forward.

Congratulations to Preachers and Perez, all the best
