Awards

The album was awarded "Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year" for the 27th GMA Canada Covenant Awards. The same year, the song "Let It Go", off the album, also won "Rap/Hip Hop Song of the Year". The following year, the music video for the song "Rodeo" was nominated for "Video of the Year".

Critical reception

As the album was Manafest's first step out of an independent status, the release only garnered a few glances from professional music sites and reviews. They were however, generally positive.

About.com applauded the album and stated: "On his debut release with BEC Recordings, Manafest brings a variety of beats to the table. Some serious rock licks back him up on some cuts, while he goes a little old school on others and then shifts to a more modern hip-hop sound on a few more. Lyrically, Manafest covers ground from witnessing to others to the pressures of living in the 21st century to living for God. Overall, this is a strong debut and it makes a big statement for this young artist." Paul Portell of Jesus Freak Hideout went on to say that "Manafest's debut may take more than a listen or two to fully appreciate his talent and attempts at songwriting. If you're a music fan that isn't too picky on diversity within the confines of an individual project that fuses rock and hip-hop together, then Epiphany is the project for you."
