VGMA board lacks gospel music inclined members: Celestine Donkor complains..



Celestine Donkor, a gospel musician, claims the VGMA board lacks gospel music-inclined members.

In an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, the award winning singer was highly appreciative of her journey with the award scheme , but according to the gospel songstress , her observations prove that gospel music does not get much attention as other types of music.

She feels that majority of the people on the VGMA board do not follow gospel music. Celestine thinks, this is because the industry don’t have more gospel people who are well informed and updated about issues in the gospel industry, and this is a short coming in that direction.

She advised the individuals on the board that , they should follow the gospel music space keenly in other to run the award scheme fairly.

The gospel songstress, added that the VGMA board has done a good job for her colleagues in the gospel sector throughout the years, but they should continue to closely watch gospel music and if they do that things will be different for the industry.

Celestine Donkor was named Female Vocalist of the Year and Gospel Song of the Year in 2020.

She is nominated in three categories this year: Best Gospel Song, Best Female Vocal Performance, and Best Gospel Artiste of the Year, and she hopes to win all three.
