UK-based Ghanaian gospel musician Sonnie Badu has received five nominations at this year’s Ghana Music Awards UK.

He was part of a list of 33 categories for the second edition of the awards released by Alordia Promotions, organisers of the awards.

Sonnie Badu received nominations in the ‘Gospel Song of the Year’, ‘Gospel Song of the Year’, ‘Gospel Artiste of the Year’, ‘UK Based Gospel Song of the Year’, ‘UK Based Gospel Album of the Year’, and ‘UK Based Gospel Artiste of the Year’ categories.

The nominations are for his hit song, ‘My Soul Says Yes’ and highly successful album, ‘Soundz of Afrika’. When contacted for a comment, Sonnie Badu simply told Myjoyonline.com that, “I am humbled by the nominations.” This year’s Ghana Music Awards UK calendar year is based on the period of April 2016 to April 2017 and organisers explained in a statement that a lot of Ghanaian musicians, labels and management teams submitted their works for this year’s awards. The Ghana Music Awards UK shines the spotlight on the best Ghanaian musicians and songs that have excelled in Ghana and the UK. Mr Alordia, CEO of Alordia Promotions said in a statement that, “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the 1,265 entries we received this year. Congratulations to all the nominees.” The plaques for this year’s awards will be presented to the winners on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at the Gaumont Palace (Dominion Centre) in London.
