Recently, Diana and hip life artiste Kofi Kinaata were unveiled as ambassadors for enterprise life, an insurance company in Ghana.
The two were unveiled at a short ceremony at Advantage Place, headquarters of Enterprise Life in Accra a month ago.
The Insurance giant settled on the gospel star to reach out to more Ghanaians mainly because Hamilton had almost become a household name in the gospel industry.
Diana Hamilton’s toughest competitor in the Artiste of the Year category was Afrobeats artiste KiDi, whose exploits in the year under review saw him being heavily tipped to win.
For scores on social media, her victory was nothing short of miracle as she combined the grace of God Almighty with hardwork and dedication.
Below are some of the comments on social media;
