With the nominations list for this year’s annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards announced, we are set and formally in the ‘VGMA’ season with most artistes and stakeholders in the entertainment industry bracing up for the big awards night.
Contemporary gospel musician Cwesi Oteng who is a debutant is one of the few who had more than five nominations in various categories. The minister is known famously for his ‘God dey bless me’ track which has won him several awards across the world.
Being the only gospel musician represented in the most prestigious award category of “Artiste of the Year”, Cwesi Oteng looks forward to pulling a surprise by beating the other nominees who are of hip-life genre.
With his unique blend of spirituality and musical modernity to propagate the Christ message, Cwesi Oteng seem a force to reckon with and indeed a very likely candidate to sweep the overall best award.
Cwesi has also been nominated in the Gospel song of the year, Gospel artiste of the year, Best music video of the year, Album of the year and Gospel album of the year categories.
