Deacon Daniel Bruce Wins 2023 Western Urban Gospel Artiste of the Year Award

Daniel Bruce, also known as “Kofi Ayeyi,” a sensational young urban Gospel Artiste, clinched the Urban/Contemporary Gospel Artiste of the Year award at the recently-held Western Gospel Awards.

The Western Gospel Awards took place on the night of November 19, 2023, at the Word of Life Assemblies of God in Anaji. The event brought together gospel artistes and media personalities from the region and featured performances by S.K Frimpong, Yvonne Mens, KDM, Perez Muzik, Akesse Brempong, and Pastor Joe Bechem.

In his thanksgiving speech, Kofi Ayeyi expressed gratitude to the Almighty God for graciously guiding him in his music career. He acknowledged the mentorship and opportunities provided by the Youth Ministry Director of the church, Apostle Ebenezer Hagan, and the National Executive Committee of the ministry. He also thanked his District Minister, Pastor Ernest Perbi-Asare, and his wife, Mrs. Sarah Perbi-Asare, for their unwavering support in his musical journey. Additionally, he appreciated his team, friends, family, Assakae District of the church, and the entire membership of The Church of Pentecost worldwide for allowing him to spread the gospel through urban music.

Born Daniel Bruce, Kofi Ayeyi is a Deacon of The Church of Pentecost, and currently fellowships with the English Assembly of the Assakae District in the Takoradi Area. While he has been involved in ministry throughout his life, Kofi officially transitioned to Urban Gospel in 2020 with the release of his first single, “Ɛyɛ Adom,” followed by the successful ‘Matchless Love.’ Since then, he has released about 15 Christocentric Urban music pieces and collaborated with other artists in the industry, including TRaP Maestros.

As of 2023, Kofi has focused on urbanizing theme songs from The Church of Pentecost as part of his Pentecostal EP project. Despite the project being incomplete, the few singles released have received exceptional approval from the church and society. His song “Agyapadze” has garnered over 10,000 plays in less than six months since its release.

Due to his dedication, Kofi received the New Artist of the Year award in the maiden edition of the Classic Entertainment Awards. In 2021, he earned his first nomination for the Western Gospel Awards in the Urban/Contemporary Gospel Artist of the Year category. Following his first nomination, he has consistently been nominated each year, securing his second consecutive win at the 2023 edition, having previously won in 2022.

The Western Gospel Awards, organized by Prolific GH, a holistic entertainment and event house in Takoradi, Ghana, aim to acknowledge and recognize individuals in the gospel fraternity, including artists, producers, and TV/radio presenters. The annual event is hosted at the Word of Life Assemblies of God auditorium in Anaji, Takoradi.
