VGMA: I am winning it – Esther Piesie touts her chances

Estimated read time 2 min read

Gospel musician Piesie Esther has downplayed the threat of others to her Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, VGMA Artiste of the Year success. The singer who has been nominated alongside Black Sherif, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Camidoh, King Promise, Joe Mettle and Kidi said she is winning, regardless.

Speaking on the sidelines of the nominee announcement party, Esther Piesie told Graphic Showbiz that she has worked harder than any of the other contenders.

“Ghanaians know the work I put in last year. I was one of the busiest gospel artists who played all the major gospel shows in Ghana including private gigs and in the churches,” she recounted her efforts to Graphic Showbiz.

Aside from her busy schedule at gis and churches, she said she had two successful shows in the country’s two biggest cities, Accra and Kumasi. She added that her hit song “W’aye Meyie” has no competition this year.

“I had two successful shows in Accra and Kumasi and from the records, W’aye Meyie stands very tall among other songs by the other artists. W’aye Meyie is a nationwide hit and very popular in every corner of the year,” she stated.

The Kae Me singer was nominated in six other categories for this year’s awards including Best Gospel Song, Best Gospel Artiste, Best Female Vocalist, Best Songwriter, Best Music Video and Vodafone Most Popular Song of the Year. The seven nominations are a statement of her busy year and her claim to the big gong.

Piesie Esther despite her confidence and successes in the year under review will not have an easy walk to the podium. She is up against previous winners of the category in Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Kidi and Joe Mettle who broke the gospel artists’ curse of winning the award by annexing it in 2017. Ghana’s breakout star of the year Black Sherif is also a big favourite to claim the award for the first time.
