Gospel musician Celestine Donkor is apparently disappointed by the decision of organizers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards not to nominate her for the Best Collaboration category.

The gospel artiste says she was utterly shocked when she read her ‘Agbebolo’ song, which featured youngster Nhyiraba Gideon did not get nomination in that category.

Speaking to Mzgee on 3FM, Celestine Donkor argued that her song enjoyed massive a time play both locally and internally, therefore, could not comprehend why it was omitted from the above category.

The musician, who was clearly peeved by the decision, further took to her Instagram page to vent her spleen.

She wrote, “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 asked.

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????
