Sone G grateful for Sterling award
Talk to any Jamaican artiste living overseas, and they will tell you how important it is to be recognised at home. It is no different for Toronto-based duo, Sone G and DaJourney.
On October 7, their song Sweet Eeh won the Collab of The Year category at the Sterling Gospel Music Awards at Swallowfield Chapel in Kingston. Sone G, who is from Clarendon, is overwhelmed by the victory.
“The Sterling Award is Jamaica’s most prestigious gospel award, it speaks to a level of professionalism and craftiness within your skillset to be recognised among your peers at the highest level. I am grateful that we were considered and pleased to have won. It’s a blessing,” he said.
Sweet Eeh was also up for a Video Of The Year Award, but that went to LeoNell Teape and DJ Nicholas’ God is in Control.
The song is the second collaboration by Sone G and DaJourney, who is originally from West Kingston. Solid Rock, released in 2020, was their debut project.
Both share a love for the gospel and believe there should be no limit on spreading the Word. Which is one of the things they wanted to show with Sweet Eeh.
“The message behind Sweet Eeh, it’s really simple. There is nothing else that can take the place of Jesus in my life,” said Sone G.
Other major winners at the seventh Sterling Gospel Music Awards were:
-Album of The Year (Sing Praises Live) by Petra Kaye
-EP of The Year (My King Project) Ryan Mark
-Male Artiste of The Year (Johnmark Wiggan)
-Female Artiste of the Year (Petra Kaye).
