    I am not surprise at all that Cecilia Marfo did not take it…I doubt how many of the gospel music lovers voted…You know the “WIASE FO” as they call them (us) will vote in numbers while the madam Theresahs will not be much bothered …

    Boss you have a point, but is not on the issue of votes alone when it comes to branding i am expert in that and i knew Cecilia will not get just because his song is religious and no brand will like to go that way.Every brand looks out for something everybody can ****ociate with, with regardless of their religion.They always do their statistics to know the number of people the artist can pull to the BRAND as a result of performance, the target audience of the artist etc .
    THIS AWARDS WAS FOR CECILIA THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS THAT !!!

    I think Charter House alongside MUSIGA should wake up and do more extra work. This year award festival is de worse of all. does who don’t deserve de nite were given de credit, why should this happen. just imagine VIP,taking home the Artiste of de year.. GMA is far behind. Sit up Organisers, and bring oout de very best next year.
