Soul singer, Sherifa Gunu, has disclosed her ambition to overthrow the 2015 VGMA "Artiste of the Year," thanked Wanlov Kubolor for getting her UNICEF ambassadorial deal and said she doesn't think she is a GLO ambassador anymore.
The most potent female traditional artiste of our time, Sherifa Gunu, who hails from the Northern part of Ghana, specifically Savlugu, noted for song like "Yumyntaaba" and a multiple award winner, has dared to rule the Ghana music industry as she gears up to overthrow Stonebwoy who won the coveted artiste of the year award at the 2015 VGMA.
To most artistes in Ghana, winning the coveted overall top award is a dream they dutifully aspire for. Artistes like Lord Kenya, Kontihene, King Ayisoba, Shatta Wale and Sarkodie are just to mention a few artistes who have in the past won the top prize.
Speaking to DJ Murphy Lee on Storm 101.9 Entertainment Extra, Sherifa firstly thanked Wanlov Kubolor for including her among various artistes who featured on UNICEF’s ambassadorial project. She further emphasised that she doesn’t think she is still a Glo ambassador though she hasn’t written any letter concerning her resignation and also revealed come 18th April, 2015, a company from UK will unveil her as their ambassador at the national theatre.
The most thrilling part of the interview was when she boldly revealed her ambition of becoming the next artiste of the year.
‘My next album is coming out in two weeks time with "Krakete Solya" as the title .Next year I’ll win the artiste of the year whether rain or shine. Oh! Seriously, am going to win…believe me…am not joking .I have already prayed for it,’ Sherifa courageously noted.
