I am happy because I have made him proud the artiste said. You can not leave my father’s name out of Ghanaian music, the son of the Ponko Abodam hit maker added.
Rev Eddie Eyison has 4 albums to his credit two of which was released late this year. He said he was happy both album has taken an award “Our God” from “Great Mercy Album” and “Total Recovery” and “Wo Ho ban” from Total Recovery Album.

My passion is to write for musicians and to help up and coming artiste, the artiste added.
The National Gospel Music Awards scheme is a collaboration between the Royal Akofena Entertainment and The Multimedia Group Limited Kumasi branch.
The National Gospel Music Awards, is an award scheme that seeks to honour and appreciate gospel musicians who have released work(s) that has influenced  the lives people to change. 
Rev Eddie who won in all 3 categories, Best Gospel Hip Hop, Best Contemporary Gospel and Best collaboration beat stiff competition from the likes of Joe Mettle, Akesse Brempong Jack alolomi and
Gifty Osei who was adjudged the Gospel Artiste Of The Year
the likes. They are equally extremely good, we won together the artiste said.
Maybe they under estimated my involvement and never knew I had a large fan base and can do that to them. I know some will wonder why it happened that way, but that one is another subject for discussion. We have all worked extremely hard. It is no more about popularity it is about what the people say. Jesus said, who do men say I am?
The musician thinks that the scheme was very fair to everyone and no one was cheated. That was the true reflection of what happened.
One of the bloggers referred to me as a new entrant and I laughed. I started music before they were born the artiste said.
Other big winners include Fafa who won the Best Reggae video, Corporate Gospel with his popular song ‘Wonder God’. 
Pastor Kofy picked the Vibrant Male Artiste and Best Praise Song of the Year. 
Surprisingly, Jack Alolome and Brother Sammy who won big at the maiden edition did not pick any awards at the 2nd edition.
