The 20th of July was a pretty awesome day for so many reasons. I had a superb time at church, hung out with my friends and Crystal Awards took place at the Shell Hall of the Muson Centre! It was a lovely evening filled with fantastic performances from Nikki Laoye and Anny, honouring the late Kefee, Frank Edwards, Gaise, Tim Godfrey, Minister Kenn, Tehilah Crew and others.
Producer Extraordinaire and newly appointed UN Ambassador, Wole Oni was awarded the Crystal Icon Award, while Okiki Jesu won the Best Traditional Gospel Award. Gospel Veteran, Sammie Okposo was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award, while Frank Edwards bagged the ‘Most Notable Achievers’ Award’. Pa Joseph Adelakun received the ‘Ever Green Award’ and the rocky, soulful Pita clinched 2 awards! Best Praise Song and Artiste of the Year! DJ Gosporella won Best Personality for his work on The Beat, 99.9 FM, Henri Soul’s ‘Badman’ won ‘ Best Urban Inspirational Song’ and IBK Spaceshipboi took home the Best Hip Hop Artiste Award. Nikki Laoye’s ‘Only You’ won ‘Best Worship Song’, and I couldn’t agree more because I’m so in love with it!
An ‘awwwn’ moment came to life when the CEO of Praiseworld Radio proposed to his fiancée before presenting an award to one of the winners!
It was a really cool evening with laughter supplied by Akpororo, as well as the MC’s Doris Simeon and Grand Komanda
You wouldn’t wanna miss next year’s edition, would you?
