One of Volta region’s leading musicians, David (Xadzixevi) Mawutor, has been adjudged the best Ewe gospel musician in the region at the first ever Ewe Gospel Awards.

The musician, whose inspiring songs and melodious voice earned him the nick name ‘Xadzixevi’, meaning singing bird, also had his decade long hit ‘Xornametor’, ‘Saviour’, declared the best album.

David Mawutor, who was clad in quality Ewe Kente and sandals, prior to receiving the award, thrilled the fully packed auditorium of the Ho Polytechnic with his thought-provoking and inspiring music.

He dedicated the award to his fans and family, especially his mother and wife, and said he would use the award to campaign against homosexuality. This maiden award, which was witnessed by the crème de la crème in Ewe music, was put together by Kafli Events Consult to celebrate and honour Ewe music and musicians in the region.

According to the Communication Director, Victor KwawuKume, the event was also aimed at exposing Ewe music to the world by bringing some competition in the industry and giving up and coming musicians the needed exposure. He added that the successes chalked from this maiden event would go a long way to improve the next awards and sustain it for the long haul.

Israel Nanevi Maweta’s ‘Edzobibi’ emerged the most popular Ewe gospel song. Wilson Anumah won the Best Ewe Gospel Executive Producer while Apostles Relation Society (ARS) Church Choir-Ho won the Best Ewe Gospel Group, with Edith Gemegah winning the Most Promising Ewe Gospel Artiste.

Honourary awards also went to Bishop Francis Kofi Anani Lodonu, Catholic Bishop of Ho, Walter Komla Blege, Immediate Past President of Evangelical Presbyterian (E.P) University College and Celestine Donkor, a musician, for their efforts at promoting Ewe gospel music in and outside the country.
