Gospel songstress, Patience Nyarko has discredited the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), terming it as bogus and full of deception.
The Popular artiste who was speaking in an interview alleged that she was robbed of a conspicuous award last Saturday night.
Her popular song, ‘Obi nnyane me’ which was nominated to the best Gospel song of the year category shockingly lost the award to Joe Mettle’s ‘Boo noni’ at the 19th edition of the event. She also did not win the Gospel Artiste of the year award.
Joe Mettle in an interview with Agyeman on Monday had admitted though his ‘Boo noni’ song was a hit song, Patience Nyarko’s ‘Obi nnyane me’ was much popular than his worship song that topped all gospel songs in the year under review.
But in an interview with Agyeman prempeh (Agyengo), host Power Drive, Patience Nyarko said she was shortchanged.
“I was clearly robbed. ..I think TV3’s Mentor programme is very credible than the VGMA,” she declared, saying that her life does not depend on the award.
