Esther Smith is a veteran Ghanaian gospel musician.
Born at Suame in Kumasi in the early 70’s, Esther joined the Tesano Methodist church choir at the tender age of 14 and that was when she grew more into music.
After her secondary education, she attended Garden City Computer Training and Typing School and the School of Languages both in Kumasi. She again joined a singing group set up by Kapital Radio a private radio station in Kumasi.
She started writing her songs after she had joined the Voices of Faith Choir in the early 1990’s. Ironically, the first song she wrote and which she calls Ewurade Wo Din No Hyeren is still in her drawer.
Her maiden album, Gye No Di, was a run away success, winning the 2003 Ghana Music Award for Gospel Album of the Year, Gospel Artiste of the Year and Best Female Vocal Performance of the Year.
She kept the pace and reaffirmed her superiority in gospel music by clinching the Best Gospel Album of the Year, Best Song of the Year and the Best Album of the year at the 2004 GMA.

In 2007, she released another album but due to poor promotion, it didn’t do too well in Ghana. She also faced some heavily publicized marital problems that same year.
She, in the past, won various awards like the Gospel Album of the Year, Gospel Artiste of the Year and Best Female Vocal Performance of the Year in 2003 at the Ghana Music Awards.
Esther Smith has been a household name that has had many gospel lovers singing to her songs but for some years now the artiste hasn’t been as active in the media like she used to be back in the days. This has gotten people asking, where she is, what she is doing and what she looks like now.

With popular songs like “Nipa,” “Ma Won San,” “Onyame Boafo,” among others, Esther Smith truly made a name for herself in the industry.
However, after her unsuccessful marriage to Reverend Ahenka, the multiple award-winning Gospel singer re-married in 2015 and is currently living in Germany with her family, while occasionally still performing.
