Oganizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMA), stated yesterday at a press launch that the Gospel Album of the year category has been taken off.

Their reason was that, though gospel musicians submitted albums to be considered for nominations, none of the albums had three hit songs which was a requirement for consideration.

But the 2012 Gospel Album of the Year winner, Gifty Osei is not in favour of the board’s decision.

In an interview with Livefmghana.com, she raised concerns saying that, VGMA’s action can cause the down fall of the Gospel Music Industry in Ghana.

“Though I did not file for nomination, It is not fair that they take that category out . It is not easy to come up with a song, shoot a video and promote it.

‘This category I would say sells us and puts us on the map as gospel artistes and if things will be like this then the question is how do we sell,” she said.

Going further, she hopes that this change would be just this year.

“I pray it will be this year but if it’s something that will be permanent then it will be a worry. They should bring it back.”

I nearly aborted DJ Switch when I conceived her – Mother

Mother of Ghana’s youngest DJ, DJ Switch has disclosed that she considered having an abortion while she was pregnant with her daughter.

She remorsefully said on Zylofon 102.1 FM’s Showbiz Agenda that had she known her daughter would have turned out successful, the thought will not have crossed her mind.

“I almost aborted her. I actually went ahead to purchase the drug to terminate the pregnancy but I changed my mind later on”, she said.

According to her, she realized she was with another child six months after having her first child and could not bear the stigma.

“I was the talk of town. Everybody was pointing fingers at me because I had just graduated and in less than two years, was going to be a mother of two”, she added.

However, she expressed her joy in the fact that she restrained from the act and, now her daughter is the most popular young DJ in the country.
