Multiple award-winning gospel singer, songwriter, philanthropist, producer, TV presenter, and author, Sonnie Badu has says the first time he got to know of gospel musician, Piesie Esther was when she released her award-winning ‘Waye Me Yie’.
The gospel minister said this while commending the 2023 VGMA Gospel Artiste of the Year winner for her hard work.
“I didn’t know Piesie until I heard a lot of people talk about ‘Waye Me Yie’. Piesie is well-packaged from visuals to graphics to everything, so whoever is behind her has to push her because the visuals are good and she is a show girl, you can see that,” he told Kwame Dadzie on Joy FM's Showbiz A-Z.
He made the comment to dispel the notion that he didn’t like Piesie Esther due to his recent endorsement of Black Sherif’s VGMA Artiste of the Year win.
According to him, Piesie has even been billed for his upcoming concert slated for December 9, 2023 at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre.
Piesie Esther, who has been in the gospel music industry for about 20 years, shot into the limelight after the release of her song 'Waye Me Yie', which won her Gospel Song and Gospel Artiste of the Year awards at the 2023 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
The massive support by the Christian community during the period of the awards, even shored up her visibility.
She was tipped as the highest contender of the ultimate category (the Artiste of the Year), to Black Sherif who won the slot.
Although Sonnie Badu has acknowledged Piesie's effort, he said on Hitz FM that Black Sherif deserved the award over Piesie Esther.
In the meantime, Piesie is out with a new song titled 'Mo'.
