Multiple Award winning Gospel musician Celestine Donkor is highly disappointed by the decision of organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards not to nominate her for the Best Collaboration category after bagging 5 Nominations.
In an interview with MzGee on 3FM, Celestine Donkor revealed that her song enjoyed massive airplay across the globe and deserved to be nominated in the Best Collaboration Cateogry.
She indicated she was shocked when she read her ‘Agbebolo’ song, which featured youngster Nhyiraba Gideon did not get nomination in that category.
Celestine Donkor further took to her Instagram page to question the VGMA Board on why they omitted her in the category above.
“Dear VGMA, I do appreciate 5 nominations for # Agbebolo. But I’m really surprised this song didn’t pass for Best Collabo. Is it because Nhyiraba Gideon is a child?” she wrote.
Meanwhile, Celestine Donkor received 5 nominations with her new single Agbebolo at the VGMA’s final nominations event which was held in Accra last weekend.

I think one of the most important ingredients that just completes the song #agbebolo is the part that the young chap @nhyiraba_gideon_official did on it. His contribution to this song cannot just be ignored. He should have even been in the “Male vocalist category” for such powerful vocal delivery at his age. How this song #agbebolo made it into categories like …. 👇🏽 ▪︎Most Popular song of the year ▪︎Gospel song of the year Among others, and yet didn’t qualify to be in “BEST COLLABO OF THE YEAR” really beats my mind. I think there has to be some good explanation for this, otherwise it poses a big question mark on the credibility of the VODAFONE GHANA MUSIC AWARDS. Who are the board members and what informed such decision? I have too many questions about this. But as usual I leave it to God and their conscience deal with them. You can watch the video of this song and just tell me if my boy doesn’t deserve such credit. Link on my Bio👉
