Speaking on Adom FM’s midmorning show, Work and Happiness hosted by Ohemaa Woyeje Wednesday, Ms. Boateng revealed that she had so many testimonies through her songs from the public noting that most of the songs are his so she is the right person to win the awards.
The 2012 Ghana Gospel Industry Awards ‘Artiste of the Year’, who was full of excitement said “the awards are not based on competition but depend solely on your hard work”.
Based on her contribution to the gospel music industry, a large number of gospel music fans have declared their intention to vote overwhelmingly for her to win the seven awards.
Ever since the fast rising gospel artiste known for popular songs such as ‘Minku Meho’ and ‘Medofo Pa’ joined the gospel music industry, she has been recognized as a great singer whose inspiring songs have had a progressive impact on the gospel music industry in Ghana.
Selina Boateng recalled one of the challenges she went through because of her new hit album “Alpha and Omega” that she was sabotage by a popular Gospel Artist but still focused on God and her career.
“If you are a gospel musician let prayer be your key because there is resentment in the Music Industry” she warned.
