Piesie Esther might not win ‘Artist of the Year’, stop giving her hope – blogger

Zhikay Ike Junior, a blogger and Editor-in-Chief of Gospel2Me, has asked Piesie Esther’s fans to stop giving her hope because she may not win the overall awards at the VGMA.

Piesie Esther, a gospel artist, has been nominated for seven Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA 23), including the overall award, “Artist of the Year.”

According to Zhikay Ike Junior, the category for Artist of the Year is very competitive, and Piesie Esther may struggle to win that category, so fans of her song should stop giving her hope.

While speaking on Rainbow Entertainment with host Daniel Dadson, he said; “Let’s take a look at the people she’s up against. All the others are irrelevant to me. But there is one exception: Black Sheriff. People expected him to win last year, but he did not. Black Sheriff has proven to be relevant in the year under review. With singles, albums, and worldwide touring and collaboration”.

“I know it’s a numbers game, and the way we’re talking behind Piesie Esther, she might get it when it comes to voting. However, the Academy and others who will be involved in certain decisions may have an impact on the voting. Anything can happen, but from where I am, it will be a difficult task.”

He went on to say that “when it comes to award schemes, gospel music has not gotten much mileage, and I think we can all agree that when it comes to representation, Ghanaian gospel music is getting fair representation rather than validation.“

“However, we are all very pleased with the representation we are receiving in the award schemes. In the long run, it encourages people to accept the fact that they are accepted. However, it should not force us to lobby for awards. We should concentrate on making an impression and providing high-quality audio,” he added.
