Renowned Ghanaian all-female gospel group Daughters of Glorious Jesus says they are focused on winning souls over amassing awards such as the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
In a chat with host Roselyn Felli on Accra-based Joy Prime's Prime Morning show, the veteran trio stated that they don't want to deviate from their unique calling.
"We’re not interested in picking forms for the VGMA because we are more focused on winning souls than the awards. Our calling is a unique one, and we don’t want to be distracted or deviate,” they said.
Cynthia Appiadu, Edna Sarpong and Monica Owusu Ansah, who formed DoG-J in 1989, emphasized that their mission is preaching the gospel above all else.
"If you want to do it for us, just go ahead and pick it; we’re ok," they told Felli, suggesting they are content to be nominated for awards without applying, as recognition is not their primary aim.
With over 50 songs recorded since their debut album 'Anwanwa Do' in 1990, DoG-J is considered Ghana's most prolific gospel act.
They have accumulated awards internationally over three decades yet remain focused on their calling to win people to Christ.
The group celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2019 with tours aimed at impacting souls for Christ throughout Ghana with their inspirational music.
