MOG-Music-1-scaled

Renowned Ghanian gospel artsy MOG Music has revealed that He was forced to put the remains of his seven month old baby in His car trunk after he was pronounced dead.  MOG who graced ”Just Being Us” on Akwaaba Magic, DSTV channel 151 hosted by MzGee was inconsolable as he recounted His wife’s ordeal.

A young new Father, MOG said that they were put in even bigger distress when the hospital informed them they had no morgue in the facility hence the need to decipher how and where to.

” One of the doctors came and this is what he said, ‘Mr Boakye unfortunately, we apologize for what has happened, it wasn’t our fault. The hospital didn’t have a mortuary, and they don’t have a place to get rid of the dead body so we would have to take the baby in the box to a cemetery and get rid of the body ourselves” he narrates.

Charles-Agyin-Asare-Archbishop-4

The founder of Perez Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agyinasare, has been elevated to become an Archbishop and has handed over the Presiding Bishop position to Rt. Rev Ohene Benjamin Aboagye.

Following a consecration service at the Perez Chapel, Dzorwulu branch on April 2, Agyinasare noted that the change forms part of the Church’s new structure to reflect the current realities and demands of the worship center.

Archbishop Agyinasare will however Pastor the Dome.

“Following my announcement last year of changes in our operational architecture to reflect current realities and demands of our church, I have accepted the new role of Archbishop of the Perez Chapel International.”

“Upon my elevation as Archbishop, please be informed that I am relinquishing the position of Presiding Bishop. As Archbishop of Perez Chapel International, I shall continue as the Prelate of the Dzorwulu Branch, (Perez Dome), and would continue to take charge of regular Sunday Church Services and all other activities as I have always done,” he noted.

He added that he will devote more attention to visiting other branches across the nation to ensure a greater presence in “our national network of branches while ensuring that I am sufficiently present at the Dome.”

Welcoming the new role Bishop Ohene will play, Archbishop Agyinasare lauded the new Presiding Bishop and his efforts towards growing the church over the past years.

“It is my greatest pleasure to announce our new Presiding Bishop, Rt Rev Ohene Benjamin Aboagye. From today, he is given the authority and mandate to shepherd this great organization for the next three years. I have no doubt that he would excel. I ask all of you to cooperate with him to lead us on our development and growth trajectory over the period and what God has purposed for us as a church,” he said.

Lady Receives Instant Healing On First Day Of “Sawla for Christ” Crusade

Lady-Receives-Instant-Healing-On-First-Day-Of-Sawla-for-Christ-Crusade

Hagar Dortiery, 19, was instantly healed of a chronic eye condition on the first day of the “Sawla for Christ” crusade being organised by the Evangelism Ministry, in partnership with the Sawla Area of The Church of Pentecost.

The spectacular event took place yesterday during a healing session held to climax the opening day of the mega crusade at the Modern Ghana Park, Sawla.

Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS on the sidelines of the event, Hagar, a Senior High School graduate and a member of the Changbalyiri District of the Church, said that she had been suffering from a strange eye condition which had persisted since her early childhood.

According to her, anytime it recurs, her eyes begin to itch terribly and swells for weeks before it comes back to normal.

She said that every effort to remedy the condition had proved futile so she had resigned to the fate of living with it for the rest of her life.

Narrating her miraculous experience, Miss Dortiery said that she came to the crusade ground with a “normal” eye and took part in every aspect of the service.

Later in the service, the Evangelism Ministry Director, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, invited all persons seeking divine healing to step in front. He further directed them to put their hand on the part (area) of the body where they had the problem as he prayed.

Hagar was one of the hundreds of people who responded to the apostolic call in faith by stepping forward and she covered both eyes with her palms.

“Although, it was not time for the condition to recur, as the Evangelism Director began to pray, suddenly my eyes started to itch intensely,” she said.

Hagar said that this time the itching was worse than she had ever experienced. But it totally stopped after Apostle Dr. Jimmy Markin had finished praying, she recounted.

“Why I call this a miracle is that, usually when my eyes begin to itch, it does not stop until it swells for weeks; this time it has completely stopped, yet my eyes did not swell,” she said.

Hagar is confident that the Lord has healed her of her condition and is grateful to Him for confirming His word with signs and wonders.

Miss Dortiery was not the only one to receive the supernatural touch of the Lord. Mrs. Lydia Torso, a mother of four and a member of the Nyange District of the Church, who suffered a hearing impairment was instantly healed as well.

According to her, about a week ago, she felt a sharp pain in her ears and could no longer hear with both ears. She quickly reached out to a Deacon of her assembly to pray with her. After the prayer, Mrs. Torso could partially hear. But, after the healing session, she testified that both ears have opened and she can now hear clearly.

Other spectacular events were also recorded on the opening day of the crusade. Among them was Cynthia Darlara, who testified of being instantly healed of a chronic stomach condition. Hannah Amoah, who had a heart problem and also suffered from recurring abdominal pain, was instantly healed of her ailments.

Linda Gandaari complained of some pains in her leg, for which reason she was unable to stand for more than ten minutes. However, after she was prayed for, she could stand for a longer period without feeling any pain.

Anastasia, an epileptic who always suffered an embarrassing attack whenever she was around people said that, for the first time in her life, she did not have an attack despite being in the midst of the thousands of participants gathered at the Modern Ghana park for the event.

To God be the glory.

Ghana’s royalty collection, distribution system heartbreaking – Akesse Brempong

akesse-brempong-vgma1-e1557911968994

Gospel recording artiste Akesse Brempong has described as heartbreaking, Ghana’s royalty collection and distribution systems for musicians.

According to him, Ghana is behind in royalty collection for musicians.

He bemoaned the fact that South Africans after playing his songs pay him royalties but Ghana has not for the past seven years.

Speaking on the Church Groove on Class91.3FM on Sunday, 6 March 2022, Akesse Brempong said “When I think about the royalty collection and distribution systems in Ghana, I get heartbroken. I get heartbroken in the sense that the institution, the body, GHAMRO, has been in existence for a long time but it appears that systems-wise, we’re way behind so much so that we cannot even have locks, a system to monitor.

Sharing his experience, Akesse Brempong noted that it baffles and shocks him that “a few weeks back, I got a call from GHAMRO saying that some royalties due me from South Africa have come to them. South Africa sent my royalties to GHAMRO, so my royalties due me were sent to me through GHAMRO. Then I go to GHAMRO to do the needful. I got there and asked them, ‘so South Africa is sending me royalty and my country, the country I live in, I have not received royalties for seven years?’ So, you can imagine.”

He said due to the problems of royalties, young musicians want to invest in systems outside Ghana, adding, “that’s why the last time they were lambasting Wiyaala for not doing certain things, and what did she say? She doesn’t care because the systems here don’t help us. If systems are put together, the musicians will be better off, the musician will invest in himself, the industry will grow, so, let’s invest in systems that will help the music industry grow.”

He bemoaned that “when I hear about musicians who have retired and they have health challenges and they are on the radio asking for money and begging, I weep.”
