I’ve never been awarded after 20 years of music – Gospel musician Abena Serwaa Ophelia

Gospel musician Abena Serwaa Ophelia has revealed that despite being in the industry for 20 years, she has never received an award.

She added that she lost to fellow gospel sensation Nii Okai the only time she was nominated for her song “daa daa daa” many years ago.

When asked how that makes her feel, the minstrel said she wasn’t bothered because she only considers awards as the “cherry on top of a cake”.

Abena Serwaa Ophelia quickly added that her primary goal is to focus on her calling and do the work of God to her maximum potential.

The talented artiste stated, “I am not allergic to awards, I’ll gladly receive one if its offered but failure to get an award doesn’t make my ministry worthless. God knows my work and He awards me in diverse ways”.

She further had this to say to her fellow musicians, “stop nagging if you haven’t been awarded because God’s time is always the best”.

Abena Serwaa Ophelia, the boss of ABS Collection located at Dansoman in Accra celebrates 20 years in ministry this year.

As part of the two decade anniversary, she has released a new song titled ‘Sing My Praise’ which features her colleague, Rose Adjei.
