Gospel musicians are set to be given their due as the maiden edition of the Ghana Gospel Industry Awards (GGIA) comes off at the National Theatre on Saturday, 9th July.

The event, organised and powered by Adom 106.3 FM, is designed to award excellence in the gospel music industry in Ghana; an industry many believe plays second fiddle to the hiplife and highlife genres in the country.

The award ceremony is borne out of the clamour for an award scheme that appreciates the volume of work done by gospel musicians across the country.

Lawrence Tamakloe, Events and Promotions executive at Adom FM, said the ceremony sought to encourage excellence in the gospel music industry.

He said the event was designed to “acknowledge the artistes and to bring professionalism and discipline into the industry so that they can favourably compete in the international arena.”

Some of the artistes on the bill are the ever-inspiring Tagoe Sisters, the suave Amy Newman, the forever young Stella Aba Seal, Phillipa Baafi, No Tribe, Cecelia Marfo, Ernest Opoku, Gifty Osei, among others.
