This year is for Piesie Esther —Kwesi Ernest on VGMA nominations

IT seems this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) ultimate award, Artiste of the Year, is a done deal for Gospel act Piesie Esther.

Well, that is the feeling one gets after talking to Artiste Manager/Music Producer Kwesi Ernest about this year’s VGMA nominees.

Kwesi Ernest, who is also CEO of Media Excel Productions, was not only emphatic about her win but also stated without hesitation that the year under review was no doubt a good one for Piesie Esther.

 “As for this year, the Artiste of the Year is a straight fight between Piesie Esther and Black Sherif but I am rooting for Piesie Esther. These two artistes made Ghana proud if you look at the work they put into their craft from Accra to Kumasi to Canada to New York, just name it, they were everywhere.”

“The two of them have been very dominant, Piesie Esther for instance was even on secular platforms. What this means for us in the Gospel fraternity is that the same support we gave to Joe Mettle and Diana Hamilton, we are giving to Piesie Esther and probably even more because we want her to be this year’s VGMA Artiste of the Year which is very possible.”

“From where I sit, I think she is 80 per cent through. See, the excitement that greeted the mention of her name even on the night of the nominees announcement was something else.”

“Even some of the Gospel musicians who are nominees too are all rooting for her. For me, the year 2022/2023 is one for Piesie Esther. So let’s all give her our support to see her succeed,” he stated.

Asked why all the support was for Piesie Esther and not Joe Mettle who has also been nominated in the Artiste of the Year category, Kwesi Ernest explained saying, “For some of us, we are not biased in our dealings with our artistes. I am the Chairman for the Table of Men (a group of male industry players who seek the welfare of Gospel artistes). I play a very pivotal role in the music industry. I am a stakeholder.

“The support we gave to Joe Mettle when he was first nominated in the Artiste of the Year category is the same support we gave to Diana Hamilton and it is the same support we are giving to Piesie Esther so let no one be emotional about it.”

“I am not saying Joe Mettle hasn’t worked hard. He has, but this year is for Piesie Esther so let’s all rally behind her to win. Let’s not forget that every nominee is a potential winner but all support should be given to Piesie Esther for her to win the ultimate prize,” he added.
