Gospel Musician, Patience Nyarko, has said that she is focused on making music to change lives rather than winning awards.
In an interview with Happy FM’s DJ Advicer on the ‘Ayekoo After Drive’ show, she said: “Awards are nice. But that is not why I do music. I am not bitter about not winning awards. I get a lot of testimonies from people listening to my songs. That is more than winning awards”.
According to her, her music is a duty from God and as such, all her songs “are filled with God’s spirit”.
Some Ghanaians are of the view that the Gospel musician has been bitter lately because she lost some awards to other gospel musicians in the various music award schemes.
For example, in 2019, Patience Nyarko, received six nominations for the 2019 edition of the annual 3 Music Awards, namely, viral song of the year, song of the year, gospel song of the year, gospel act of the year, music woman of the year and best collaboration of the year categories.
However, she did not win a single award at the event.
Patience Nyarko is known for her popular ‘Obi Nyanime’ which features renowned praise and worship singer, Brother Sammy.
