SK FRIMPONG SINGS OF GOD’S UNMERITED GOODNESS IN NEW RELEASE – ADEFOODE

125198372_2849150252004127_3071096293822342075_o

It’s Ghana’s favorite praise and worship leader, recording artiste and songwriter, SK Frimpong presenting to us his latest jam; Adefoode.

Originally inscribed in Ghana’s indigenous Twi parlance, ‘Adefoode’ literally translates in English as ‘Chargeless’ or ‘Free of Charge’.

The song is simply explaining the dumbfounding goodness of God’s ability to save, bless, impart giftings and graces at no payable cost at all.

It challenges the status quo of worldly wisdom that seeks that one ought to strive hard in attaining something as precious as salvation and divine blessings.

SK Frimpong is simply stressing on the point that all of God’s goodness can’t be bought, it can and must only be received. It’s simply priceless!

It’s an inference to the famous biblical story of Naaman’s rejected gifts to the Prophet Elisha after God used him to cure Naaman’s leprosy.

Buy/Stream ‘Adefoode‘ everywhere online as you appreciate God’s plentiful benefits to us that we don’t pay a dime for and if there be any need unmet by God, may speedy solutions be delivered to your doorstep free of charge!

THANK YOU for constantly reading our stories. Kindly like, comment and SHARE stories on all social media platforms for more entertaining updates….

Tagoe Sisters to stage concert …call on churches to support gospel musicians

21040952_1968126123399136_6369598248436367360_n

 

Ghanaian gospel music legends, Tagoe Sisters, are putting their acts together to stage a virtual concert to support the needy as part of their humanitarian initiatives.

Expected to roar off by the end of November, the concert would serve as a platform for them to release their maiden song for the year as well as raise funds to support the needy in December.

The smashing musical twins — Lydia Dedei Yawson Nee Tagoe and Elizabeth Korkoi Tagoe, made this revelation when they called on the new Editor of The Spectator, Mr Emmanuel Amponsah, on Monday.

According to them, their Tagoe Twins Foundation takes care of needy twins and the vulnerable, adding that they have adopted a lot of needy people, and taken care of some twins who have completed university, while others are undergraduates.

The gleaming duo called on churches to support gospel musicians to help the growth of ministry, adding that some churches did not properly remunerate artistes they had invited to perform for them.

They hold the view that gospel music is an essential tool in soul winning and instrumental in every church; for that reason, attention must be paid to that department.

Citing some of the treatment meted out to gospel artistes by some churches, they said, at times the auditoriums were even rented out to them (artistes) for their album launches, and were also asked to pay electricity bills, among others, after using the artistes for free on numerous occasions.

“During our Adonai Concert, there is a church we used to go most of the time; we sent them 100 tickets to sell to over 1000 congregation, and sadly, they sold only one ticket as they refused to announce the tickets to members,” they disclosed.

According to them, as a result of these challenges, most gospel musicians have now resorted to managers, to avoid direct contact with the church leaders to ensure that pastors or churches that need their services to pay what is due them.

To them, these things did not augur well for the growth of gospel music, adding that “the church needs to help musicians, because they need a lot of financial investment for music production and promotion.”

The duo further advised gospel musicians to look for side jobs to be able to raise a lot of money for the needed projects they set to embark on.

Touching on what made them fulfilled, they said: “What makes us fulfilled is we are still alive together in the ministry, and taking care of our foundation to put smiles on the faces of needy people.”

They disclosed that there was a re-branding and outdooring of Tagoe Sisters Ministries, hopefully next year, among other musical projects, which were shelved as a result of COVID-19.

Akufo-Addo’s vision to build National Cathedral pushed me to campaign for him – Cwesi Oteng

InShot_20201110_093502637

Gospel musician Cwesi Oteng has said, if not for the construction to build National Cathedral announced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, he wouldn’t have been bothered to move from one venue to the other asking Ghanaians to vote once again for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate.

According to the “God Dey Bless me” hit maker, plans to build such an edifice to worship God is the best developmental project to ever happen in the history of Ghana adding that, it is God’s wish that Akufo-Addo builds a National Cathedral for him.

“In 2016, I endorsed the candidature of President Akufo-Addo based on his track record, his level of maturity for rule of law. As time goes on, I realised you just don’t endorse for endorsing sake, you endorse with a message and this particular election, I endorsed him because of his agenda to build the National Cathedral. The whole idea to build a National Cathedral is something that moves me.

“I think that any person who honors God and wants to do something for God in this magnitude for the christian community deserves applause. I think that generation to come would forever be grateful. For a very long, we’ve not had a President with such an agenda” he said in an exclusive interview with Halifax Ansah-Addo on Okay FM’s ‘Best Entertainment Show’.

He continued, “It’s good to have someone who seeks to honour God and as well has an agenda of the many things they have to do which see building of National Cathedral as part. Earlier it wasn’t part of the conversation, it was later this year which saw it as part. I believe the Cathedral would be a monument which will as well be needed to show”

He however said the many tags suggesting his music career is dead, reason that he publicly campaigned for the President Akufo-Addo is not true.

According to him, he does not agree to that statement, adding that his songs are on rotation across the airwaves both radio and TV.

Cwesi Oteng (real name Hermon Cyrus Kwesi Nhyira Oteng) is a Ghanaian gospel recording artiste, songwriter, youth pastor, creative director, conference speaker and youth advocate who has the calling of bringing God’s message of hope, love, peace, transformation and care to humanity upon him as well as being a voice of assurance for the lonely, rejected, lost and forgotten in society through music and social projects.

118995151_1776843515804338_8066477240333842815_n-e1603887824459

As the countdown continues towards November 4 – the official date for ‘The God Factor’ album release, dynamic worshipper and songwriter Eugene Zuta has unveiled the final album tracklist.

The ‘Woso’ singer is ready to unleash a total praise and worship experience into our hearts once again in this new nine (9) track project recorded live in Takoradi in late 2019.

All songs on the album were written and composed by Eugene Zuta with others such as Baaba Enim (Co-writer of Papa), Henry Datsomor, David Pinkrah playing the roles in the arrangement of some songs. All songs on the album were produced by KODA.

The foretaste of this timely album was experienced in the two singles released earlier this year. Okasa, the first single from the album is a song written by Minister Eugene Zuta back in 2003 for Echoes of Calvary of GHAFES – UCC chapter and was ministered live and unrehearsed during the live recording.

Coming on the heels of ‘Okasa’ was ‘Papa (My Father)‘, a song urging us to place our hope in God as our Father based on His track record.

Judging from these two songs, there is more to be experienced from this project by the renowned worship leader.

Album will be available from the 4th of November on all digital stores.

Joe Mettle shares testimony on his ‘Wind of Revival’ album

joe_mettle_raw7

Award-winning gospel musician, Joe Mettle, has opened up on how God directed him on the release of his ‘Wind of Revival’ album.

In an interview with Kay Official on the Myd-Morning Radio Show on Y102.5FM Kumasi, he confessed that the year he released that album was one of the years in which he saw proper change because God had told him that he was going to cause a change.

According to him, he had tried several times to record the songs and he had planned to put the songs on the ‘Encounter’ album but it did not work.

He also tried to put it on the ‘God of Miracles’ album but God told him to hold on with that as well till it was time for the Wind of Revival’ album when God finally told him that it was time to let those songs come out.

“We would rehearse, about to record and something would come up so we wouldn’t record. And sometimes, we would record but it wouldn’t come out as we expected so we don’t use it.”

“Wind of Revival itself was in the year that God told me that He was going to cause a change. That he was going to cause a revival not only in my life but in the life of the people, in the world, and these are the messages that He wants me to speak out there”, he shared.

The singer gave his testimony on how they were able to do so much without having to go through the regular stress where they had to get people to support the project.

“God was just opening doors and people were just coming our way with support. Not only that, people were testifying things that God was doing in their lives as a result of the singles that we released even before the Wind of Revival album, and on the day itself that we had the concert, it was just something else”, he added.

Ceccy Twum shocks Stacy with revelations about Nacee, OJ, Joe Mettle

24637127.295

The host of ‘Restoration with Stacy’ was utterly shocked and had goose-bumps following Ceccy Twum’s account of how some male gospel musicians have contributed immensely to her musical career.

Ceccy Twum who took her turn on the show mentioned that her most popular and successful song ‘Nyame Aye Awie’ was composed by colleague Minister OJ. The interesting part of the story, according to the songstress is the fact that OJ did so without charge.

“One day, OJ called me and said he had a song for me; he was of the greatest conviction if I sing the song, it will be a hit and miracles will follow. He came home, we rehearsed it,” she recalled the 2011 event.

“I was pregnant at the time… I went to University of Ghana to perform and it was amazing. Nacee and No Tribe were there to perform as well. I had heard his name but never met him before. I wanted to see him but the crowd was massive so I left after my performance.”

“The next day, OJ called me and said Nacee wanted to speak to me. Nacee commended me for my performance and expressed interest in recording my album. He came home… When OJ brought the song, I went straight to Nacee. He produced the song pro bono. He produced the album as well,” Ceccy Twum narrated.

A similar gesture emanated from Joe Mettle when the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year composed ‘Di Wo Hene’.

“My latest single ‘Di Wo Hene’ was composed by Joe Mettle. He called that he had a song for me. I recorded it in his studio and featured him. He gave me the song for free, featured on it for free and shot the video for free,” said Ceccy Twum.

“Wow! God bless them. This has given me goose-bumps,” Stacy Amoateng reacted.

Meanwhile, Ceccy Twum in the interview monitored by GhanaWeb observed that the gospel music industry is bedeviled by petty squabbles because the sector is dominated by females.

She posited that females are naturally quarrelsome and mostly bitter over the feats of others especially when the achiever is hailed by many for the success chalked.

“Bickering is normal. It happens everywhere. But the thing is, females dominate the gospel music industry and wherever women are, you should expect these petty quarrels. It’s natural with women,” she asserted.

Female dominance in gospel music industry cause of rifts between artistes – Ceccy Twum

53941016.295

Renowned gospel musician Ceccy Twum has observed that the gospel music industry is bedeviled by petty squabbles because the sector is dominated by females.

She posited in an interview on ‘Restoration with Stacy’ that females are naturally quarrelsome and mostly bitter over the feats of others especially when the achiever is hailed by many for the success chalked.

“Bickering is normal. It happens everywhere. But the thing is, females dominate the gospel music industry and wherever women are, you should expect these petty quarrels. It’s natural with women,” she asserted.

While underscoring it is not compulsory and cannot be possible to be friends with everyone, the popular gospel singer said it would be prudent for one to rather put in much effort and accomplish one’s dreams instead of being swamped in jealousy.

“If you don’t have that connection with someone, it doesn’t mean you should be enemies. When your paths cross, just exchange pleasantries and walk away,” she said in the interview monitored by GhanaWeb.

She continued: “Be happy for the progress of your colleague. Let’s not be overly envious. There is a bit of envy in every person but when it translates into evil and hatred, it becomes problematic. Be inspired by the achievements of others.”
