It is no longer news that Nigerian gospel sensation act, Nathaniel Bassey, has been nominated in the African artiste of the year category in the most prestigious music Awards ceremony and festival in Ghana, which is the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
The 2017 edition of VGMAs powered by chaterhouse productions and sponsored by Vodafone Ghana is a music Awards event held annually to celebrate musicians and everyone doing excellently well in the creative arts industry in Ghana.
Following the release of the 2017 grand nominee list, the event is slated to hold on 18th April, at the Accra International Conference Center.
Nathanal Bassey’s nomination in the African Artiste of the year category is first of it’s kind and a record breaking feat for a gospel artiste in Africa to get a spot on that category which is dominated by secular musicians in the likes of Patoranking, Mr. Eazi, Runtown, and Tekno.
The Christian community in Africa are super excited having Nathaniel as one of the nominees in the VGMAs 2017 and there is hope that he may likely win.
