Great Fames Award

The ceremony was held at Eagles Court in Benin City Edo State Nigeria. The celebration witnessed an outpouring of great number of notable stars in Edo State and beyond in attendance. The organizer and the CEO of Great Fames Award Mr. Nosa said that the Award which began in 2017 has come to stay and will continue to grow big and bigger and better. According to him, the aim of this Award is to promote gospel acts in Edo State as evidence has shown that Edo State ranks high among the states that have produced good number of quality gospel artistes in Nigeria. Therefore, this gesture is a step in the right direction in order to recognize the efforts of gospel artistes and to encourage them to do more in the system.

One of the adverse effects this Award is trying to avert is the mass exodus of gospel artistes to the worldly music where they think they can rise to stardom rapidly. Therefore, the Great Fames Award is paving ways for gospel artistes to be recognized and be honored for their contributions in the vineyard of God. The Award is not restricted to gospel singers alone but included in the list are categories like dancers, instrumentalists, gospel comedians, traditional medleys, inspirational songs etc. 

However, Talking Christianity reporter asked him what the voting process was like, he said that, previously, they used facebook likes to determine those that have popular stand among the Christian fold, but this year they have taken a different process that is better and well enhanced.

Also, Talking Christianity crew spoke to some of the nominees and they expressed their joy in being among the notable artistes that are chosen for the award. And many of them were optimistic that they will come out victoriously. The nominees are very young artistes whose prospects are very bright if they continue in their field of operations.
