Goldmann earns INGOMA nod

BY: Gifty Owusu-Amoah

Gospel artiste, Goldmann has every reason to be elated and no one can blame him. The first half of this year has been a good one for him. First, he was on the cover of the June 2022 edition of the official magazine for the Gospel Choice Music Awards, GCMA XChange.

He is the first African Gospel artiste to enjoy such a privilege after well-known religious figures in the US such as Gospel singer, Daphney Hilton, Bishop Darriuskey and Pastor Quincy Lavelle Carswell II who have all graced the cover of previous editions.

And the month of July is also looking good for Goldman real name Daniel Agyin. He has been nominated for the Best African Gospel Artiste at the 9th Independent National Gospel Music Awards (INGOMA) planned for Red Conference Centre, Greemstone Johannesburg on Saturday, August 27.

Goldmann is competing with the likes of Jean Mar T (DR Congo), Chengetai B (Zimbabwe) and Evangelist Peter from Nigeria in the category.

Focus

Organised by INGOMA Foundation, the annual awards is focused on exposing, promoting, and celebrating the works and talents of rising African gospel music artistes.

In a conversation with Graphic Showbiz, Goldmann said he is very excited about the two accomplishments since they go a long way to push his brand.

“Being the first African Gospel artiste to make it on the cover of GCMA XChange magazine is one of the best news for me this year and just before I will recover from the excitement, my nomination at INGOMA also comes. All this happened in less than a month and I thank God for these recognitions.

“ I want to use this opportunity to call on my fans around the world and particularly in Ghana to vote for me to win my category. A win for me is a win for Ghana since I’m representing our country and it will also push the fortunes of Ghanaian Gospel artistes,” he said.

Even though he is based in US, Goldman is mostly in Ghana to promote his music which has earned some awards in Ghana. Some of his songs are Ayeyindwom, Asem and Nyame Adom.

In 2019 for instance, he was adjudged the Best Song Writer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year at the Ghana National Gospel Music Awards.
