“I was in Legon first year and my goal was to pursue my masters in the United States. So I challenged God that you know what, this allowance that they give us, I’m going to give you half of it and you give me my dreams. The dream happened and since then I haven’t turned back. I have realized that there more blessing in giving than receiving”.
The Steaman Group is the headline sponsors for the Ghana National Gospel Music Awards.
