This is what ensued as we conversed:
Q: We are really happy for your win. how has the reception been so far?
A: thank you very much. I’m really grateful it has been amazing… So yeah… Thank you.
Q: How does it feel to be the current reigning Gospel Artiste of the Year?
A: I don’t even know whether I’m reigning but eh… The feeling is good, it’s humbling, it just gives you the chance to do more. So yeah…it’s a very mixed feeling, there was the excitement, there is the reality and there’s the ‘let’s work harder’… Yeah yeah.
Q: How do you plan on doing more?
A: oh it also brings out the fact that you now need to work harder, pray harder and just believe God to bring greater things your way.
Q: OK. What do you think made you win two awards at the just ended VGMAs
A: Hmm… The first thing is God, the second thing is the song, Mo Ne Yo, and maybe the work we have done during the year in review and most importantly, it is the love shown by Ghanaians in Ghana and abroad.
Q: How far do you think the Diana Hamilton brand has reached and did that influence your win?
A: The interest around the world, it’s amazing. I cannot even explain… You know … Ermm… And I’m sitting here thinking how did it happen? But God made it possible, hardwork made it possible, but most importantly, people around the world, people in Ghana, the love, social media. There was this serious campaign going on that I don’t even know how it started but it kinda took off and I’m so grateful.
