I saved for a year for Stellar Awards – Empress Gifty
Gospel Artiste, Empress Gifty Adorye, says she saved for a year in preparation for the 37th Stellar Awards.
Lamenting the lack of support in Ghana for the music industry, the singer said her attendance at the awards was not viral because negative news usually generates the most buzz.
“I saved for one year before going to Stellars Awards. I spend a lot of money and effort on my craft. I was the only Ghanaian gospel artiste at the event, but how many bloggers or media houses in Ghana talked about it,” she lamented.

The Stellar Awards Gospel Music Show is the first and oldest televised awards show to honour Gospel music artists for over 37 years.
This year’s event was held at Cobb Energy Performing Art Centre in Atlanta, LA. It brought together heavyweights in the music industry around the world and saw global gospel brands like Kirk Franklyn, Travis Greene Wande, Rudy Currence, Chrisette Michele, Ricky Dillard, Kelontae, Giving, Jason Nelson, James Fortune, Doe, and Tyte Tribbett, among others, to thrill the audience.
It was followed by the presentation of awards and honours to deserving industry players.
In 2017, Joe Mettle represented Ghana at the show.
