Gospel artiste Patience Nyarko prior to the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards night said in an interview that she would collapse if she doesn’t win any award after she was nominated in two categories.
Many industry players questioned why she would hold an award scheme in such high esteem instead of coming up with ways and means to win souls for Christ.
One of such people is the manager of a fellow gospel musician, Lady Kess, Nhyiraba Quojo Frympon.
According to him; “Gospel work is a soul saving campaign and not for self-glorification or popularity vote for VGMA awards.”
In an interview with livefmghana.com, he cautioned gospel musicians to win more souls for Christ with their songs rather than see an award event as a do or die thing.
“Some of these gospel artistes just do not know their calling, sometimes I feel they are so in a hurry to make a name so they will go to any extent to get things done.
“An example is Patience Nyarko, I mean how can you say you will collapse if you do not win any award, how, now let me ask, did she collapse after not winning?”
He went on; “I am tempted to say that most of these artistes are suffering from misplaced priority. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all other things will follow.”
Going further, he cautioned some of the gospel artistes sabotaging people for publicity of their songs and seeking the downfall of their fellow artistes.
Nhyiraba Quojo Frympon is the CEO of RedWaters Consult. He is a young entrepreneur with a passion for talent and project management. He holds an MBA in finance from MUCG, Ghana.
Lady Kess (Akua Kesewaa) came into the limelight in 2012 when she released her debut album titled Ma wani dzi.
She released her second album; Enime nye adwene (agree with me) last year which featured Gifty Osei. The album is set to be launched in the last quarter of this year
Nhyiraba Frympon has also commended the likes of Obaapa Christy, Joe Mettle, SP Kofi Sarpong for their humility and asked the up and coming ones to emulate them.
