Chris Appau partners with Joe Mettle on his maiden collabo -Akpe Kataa

FB_IMG_1593191080206

Burgeoning Gospel music minister, Keyboardist, Music Director, Worship Leader & Producer, Chris Appau has teamed up with Joe Mettle for a new single, Akpe Kataa.

Following a successful Ewe Praise Medley – Vovome, that swept through the nation like wildfire, Chris Appau is bent on building up from where the Bethel Revival Choir ended with this Thanksgiving tune.

Recorded live at his concert in January, Akpe Kataa is destined to be a blessing to all listeners and stir up a heart of gratitude unto God despite the uncertain times we find ourselves in.

A mature believer would discern that it is even in such times that we ought to learn to thank God for the more in order to tap into the mystery of multiplicity in the midst of economic scarcity and the breakdown of our global health systems.

Stemming from a rich musical background, Chris Appau has directed professionally both in Churches and Interdenominational groups such as Eastwood Anaba Ministries, Messiah Baptist Church, Winners Chapel Ghana, among several others.

On why and how he got Joe Mettle on his first-ever collaboration, he narrated, “We met over a decade ago and Min Joe Mettle has been like a senior brother since then. When it was time to do this song I knew he was the best person to do this song with me and I am glad I chose him.”

He has Recorded, Arranged, and Produced for artistes such as Empraise, Kobby Mantey, Ohemaa Mercy, Ps Joe Beechem, John Sena, Tino Manford, Eugene Zuta, Minister IGWE, PL Crew and many more..

Weed allegedly found on Pastor who threatened EC boss

89139605.295

Per information available in the media, parcels of a substance suspected to be marijuana (weed) have been found on Apostle Kwabena Owusu Agyei who was arrested earlier Tuesday morning for threatening to kill chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana.

The self-acclaimed prophet who was arrested in the middle of a live radio interview by National Security operatives was later captured in another video displaying parcels of weed; with security operatives in the background heard castigating his actions.

Apostle Kwabena Owusu Agyei at a Church Service on Facebook live on Sunday warned the EC boss to halt her decision to compile a new voters’ register for the upcoming polls.

While displaying his voters’ ID, Apostle Kwabena Owusu Agyei insisted that if the voters’ register undergoes any substantive changes, the Electoral Commissioner will die.

In his words the EC chairperson, Jean Mensa will die at 12 midday if she goes ahead with the compilation of the new register.

The prophet also emphatically stated that, during the June 4 revolution, the blood of military men was shed but what he is hearing this time, it is the blood of the ‘Akyem mafia’ that will flow.

“Let me tell them (Akyems) something, on June 4 people were crying let the blood flow, it was only military people whose blood flowed… Today as I hear the let the blood flow, it is the blood of the Akyem Mafia that will flow… I saw Akyem Kyebi palace, I saw it on fire and people were saying let the blood flow,” he said while warning President Akufo-Addo to not open the borders for prospective runaways.

“I’m telling Jean Mensa today… If Jean Mensa thinks she was not born of a woman but came from some other angle, she should go ahead and do the new register. She will die 12 midday. She will die just like that. Nonsense! Idiot! You’re an idiot Jean Mensa… Stupid Akufo-Addo girl…” he fumed.

Abeiku Santana Throws Weight Behind Urban Gospel Music in Ghana

Abeiku-2-696×696

One of Ghana’s biggest drive time radio show hosts and multiple award-winning broadcast journalist, Abeiku Santana, has declared this month of June dedicated to Ghana’s Urban Gospel Music.

As one of the genres with the least support across the board, due to its relatively young state in the music history in Ghana and also it’s a diversion from the music norm or popular culture, this gesture by the Tourism Ambassador will be recorded as a great milestone by the stakeholders of Urban Gospel.

Abeiku made this known on his Instagram page and explained his reasons as follows;

Over the years the Ghanaian gospel music scene has seen a transformation from the traditional Highlife and Reggae rhythms to the fusion of the Hip-Pop element and culture.

Also, watch CERSHOW

 

Musicians who fall under this category mostly sing or rap in English with the lyrics more focused on praising God.

Since the birth of the Urban Gospel music genre in Ghana, Ghanaian Urban Gospel Rappers have been bringing their unique perspective of Rhythm and Poetry to an entirely new level.
Urban Gospel is now bagging attention and trends in Ghana as presently been acknowledged as a genre.

Also watch CERSHOW

In this Month of June 2020, Okay 101.7 FM’s biggest Radio Drive Time Show in Africa will throw more light on Ghanaian Urban Gospel Artistes that are currently creating a radical change with respect to Urban Gospel Music genre.

Pentecost University College Receives Presidential Charter

puc-696×697

Pentecost University College (PUC) has received a Presidential Charter making it a full-fledged University that will now be able to award its own degrees rather than through an affiliate University as required of all private Universities without a charter.

The President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo presented the Charter Certificate to the university on Thursday, May 28, 2020, at a brief presentation ceremony at the Jubilee House.

In his address, President Akufo-Addo commended Pentecost University for the hard work done over the years to merit the status of an independent institution of higher learning.

President Akufo-Addo indicated that Pentecost University has met the stringent requirements under regulation 20, clause 2, of the tertiary institution’s regulations, 2010, LI 1984, “which enjoins the board to consider the following before a charter is granted;

  • a. The length of the period which shall not be less than ten (10) years within which the applicant has successfully operated under the supervision of a mentoring institution,
  • b. The governance structure of the applicant,
  • c. The quality of teaching, research, academic staff and work of the applicant,
  • d. The financial, material and teaching facilities and resources at the disposal of or owned by the applicant and
  • e. Other factors that the board determined to be appropriate.”

He, however, admonished the institution not to rest on its oars but to justify its new status as a Chartered University by maintaining the standards that have elevated it to a full-fledged tertiary institution.

“The University should bear in mind that it will be closely monitored especially in the areas of concern outlined by the National Accreditation Board,” President Akufo-Addo said.

 

Apostle Dr Daniel Okyere Walker, the Rector of Pentecost University, who received the charter certificate on behalf of the University, thanked the Lord for His faithfulness towards the university and The Church of Pentecost.

He thanked the President and the Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh and the National Accreditation Board and all who made this feat possible.

He also acknowledged the Chancellor of the University and Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, under whose leadership the university has chalked such a momentous milestone.

The Rector also dedicated the success to all past Chairmen of The Church of Pentecost, past rectors, as well as past and present staff and students of the university whose contributions has helped to propel the university to such a commendable height.

He assured the President that Pentecost University would continue to pursue excellence stating that “The vision of Pentecost University is to become the Number One faith-based university in Africa that will develop transformational leaders for Ghana, Africa and the world at large.”

 

watch CERSHOW:

Among those present to witness the historic event was the immediate-past Chairman of the church and first Rector of Pentecost University, Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyiah (Rtd.), and Apostle Prof. Peter Ohene Kyei (Rtd.), immediate-past Pentecost University Rector.

Also present were the General Secretary of the church, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, Vice-Rector of the university, Elder Prof. K. B. Omane Antwi, the Chairperson of University’s Council, Her Ladyship Elizabeth Ankumah, the University’s Registrar, Mr Foster Amoani, and the wife of the Rector, Mrs Irene Walker.

At the same event, the All Nations University College (ANUC), a private institution of higher learning located at Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana, also received a presidential charter.

People look up to you, let ministry be our focus – Gospel artiste to colleagues

Gospel-Musicians-Must-Go-Back-To-The-Basics-_ps-boate-1-1

A gospel artiste has urged his colleagues to forgo ‘beefs’ and unnecessary counter-arguments because it “is just not Christian.” Emmanuel Kyei Boate said the artistes are making a mockery of themselves and God with their actions. “I have been quietly observing all these issues running around in the Christian music or entertainment circles and it’s a worrying trend. “It’s as if there’s no “old man at home” to tell everyone ‘hey stop the nonsense and focus,’ he wrote in a Facebook post.

He stated that followers who look up to these artistes also sadly join the feud insulting the artistes or their followers.“We are making a mockery of ourselves and the God we serve, guys. If we are not careful we will become so so ordinary.”Emmanuel Boate’s comment comes after Patience Nyarko had said her colleague Joe Mettle was not the best gospel singer in the country. She added that he did not have many songs written by him to boast about.

According to her, his renditions of hymns and Christian songs are what he thrives on, comments she said were not as a result of anger but her quest to make gospel act face reality. She subsequently walked out of an interview after she was asked to one of Joe Mettle’s songs.

 

 

In the Facebook post, Emmanuel Boate stated that many of these things are happening because there has been a shift in focus for many gospel artistes.

He stated that “when Fame and Money and quest for Awards and YouTube views took the center stage we began to lose it.“I have seen people jubilating attaining millions of views of their videos on YouTube and I’m like hmm #FocusShifted.” If ministry is the focus, music from Gospel artistes should be able to feed the soul and spirit of the listeners, he stated. Boate wrote that recently just a handful of artistes have been able to achieve that feat. He added, “The rest that really ministers to my spirit and pushes me into prayer are from Nigeria and I’m serious.”

Popular Evangelist ‘Apraku My Daughter’ Passes On

239164580_733801

Popular Ghanaian evangelist Emmanuel Kwaku Apraku, affectionately known in media circles as ‘Apraku My Daughter’, has reportedly passed on to eternal glory.

According to Peacefmonline.com sources, he passed on peacefully in his room at his Kasoa residence on Wednesday afternoon.

Information surrounding his death is still sketchy, however, police have been dispatched to his residence to investigate the cause of his death.

A close aide of the deceased, Prophet Kumchaha, confirmed the unfortunate news to Nana Yaw Konadu, host of Peace Fm‘s “Wo Haw Ne Sen” program.

According to Kunchacha, he received a call from his former wife that the once-powerful man of God has reportedly kicked the bucket.

Because I could not wholly accept what his wife told me, I had to drive to his Kasoa residence to find out first hand if indeed Evangelist Kwaku Apraku has passed on….and I can confirm right now to you that his lifeless body is lying here on his bed,” Kumchacha narrated.

Last month, the one-time renowned evangelist was falsely reported dead by the media.

Apraku, who is the Founder and leader of King Jesus Evangelistic Ministry International, publicly came out to deny the death rumors.

Clearly shocked at the disinformation, a then hale and hearty Apraku asked the general public to disregard the reports.

Oh, that is how the world is. I am alive. This is me. It has been announced on the radio that I’m dead, but it is not true. I am speaking from Kasoa at the moment,” he told the press.

Pastor Apraku became one of Ghana’s most sought after pastors about 10 years ago because of the numerous miracles he performed.
