Music group No Tribe has been adjudged the Artiste of the Year at the maiden Ghana Gospel Industry Awards organised by Adom 106.3 FM to encourage excellence in the gospel music industry.
The group also swept two other awards – Album of the Year and Popular Video of the Year – with its leader, Nacy, winning the Male Vocalist of the Year, Gospel Sound Engineer of the Year as well as Gospel Producer of the Year categories.
No Tribe dedicated the topmost award to all ladies in Ghana, saying women are their favourite fans. The group also announced with pride that they had received another award in the United Kingdom for the Album of the Year category.
The Ghana Gospel Industry Awards, which took place at the National Theatre in Accra Saturday night, brought together gospel music producers, writers, artistes and their fans.
The programme began with a live interaction with artistes and the audiences at the foyer of the National Theatre. It followed with a prayer and an exciting choreography by a group called ‘Spirit of David’.
Singers Selina Boateng and Mary Ghansah set the stage with interesting performances which lifted the spirits of many who were geared up for the gospel music show down.
Gospel artistes who had not been seen on the screens for years - like Tagoe Sisters, Stella Seal, Mary Ghansah - also made a grand reappearance to thrill the audiences with their old but still fresh repertoire.
Other artistes who won various awards included:
New Artiste of the Year ---- Cwasi Oteng
