Overflow incor

Overflow Global also known as Overflow Incorporated, Ghana’s leading contemporary musical group, is poised for another song release dubbed “BOSSU” Thursday, July 18, 2019.

Debuting their very first single was the Acappella “Enuonyam” which thrilled the minds of many. Not too long after, “Majie Oyi” a contemporary worship medley, trended across the country; consequently turned into a worship tune for churches and worship leaders across the country. Topping up with the latest single was “BRA”, a music piece that literally means “Come”.

For the EP record, OverflowIncglobal, a much wider umbrella of Overflow Inc comprising all branches from across the country; Belgium, UK and Cannada, is set to release another single called “BOSSU “.

“BOSSU” is a ghetto slang, which generally means “boss”. It is a title given to anyone who expresses the highest authority and dominance over a domain. Overflowglobal hereby addresses God as “BOSSU” to insinuate that God is God over all.

The afrobeat music piece mixes different genres into one masterpiece. It displays an unpredictable Overflow Inc character signature and a very high-class quality music production.

This single seeks to reach out to everyone especially the exuberant generation; YOUTH. To all dancers, Afrobeat lovers, gangsters, the “yo! Yo!s, the ghetto “niggas”, the funk freaks, and all music lovers, get ready for your latest jam for the moment!

Commenting on the music, 2017 Gospel Artiste of the Year, Joe Mettle said: “It’s working ‘koraa’”.

I went to university without SHS education – Joe Mettle reveals struggles

WhatsApp Image 2019-06-20 at 12.31.18 AM

Faith in God works, that is according to the 2017 VGMA Artist of the Year, who says it turned his life around.

“No man can claim credit for who I am today,” Joe Mettle said on Joy FM, “It was God who changed my story,” he added.

He dropped out of school twice in his attempt to get a secondary school certificate and it was clear his JHS certificate could not make him what he wanted to be.

It took the power of God to get him to complete university education even without a formal secondary school education, he recounted on ‘I SURVIVED’ the latest segment on the Super Morning Show.

But long before he could make music, and become the VGMA artist of the year, Joe Mettle recounted how his present fame, power and wealth is a stark contradiction of conditions of his formative years. Mr. Mettle was already selling at age 12 to support his mother.

“It was not by choice,” he told Daniel Dadzie host of the SMS, “born into a family which did not have, I did what mother did,” he narrated.

Joe Mettle sold waakye leaves at Agbogloshie, and progressed to selling waakye itself when polythene bags replaced the leaves used to package the Ghanaian delicacy.

He had to drop out of school after Junior High School because combining trading and education was not only a difficult task, but the earnings from the sale of waakye, brooms and canes were too meagre to pay for secondary education.

Without an SHS certificate, it was clear he was not going to become an Architect after all. But that was not his immediate concern.

The embarrassment of people asking him constantly why he was not in school was a bigger nightmare.

He would, therefore, dress as if he going to school but end up in the church. Being in the church helped him to earn small amounts from some generous worshipers while playing the drum for them. With that, he also avoided questions on why he was not in school.

The worse came when Joe Mettle had to leave home and fend for himself in the streets.

On that journey, he slept in churches and homes of church members pretending to spend the weekend there but ended up spending weeks. When his host got fed-up, they kicked him out.

In one instance, he spent a year with a pastor in a single room.

He recounted eating gari and groundnut paste stolen from a woman. He and his friends survived on these for many days until they were caught.

“It was not easy,” he said.

But God had not abandoned him. He knew God was preparing him with all those experiences.

According to him, he is able to do so much in life today even with little because of the frugal life God put him through.

“All things work together for the good of them that loved the lord,” he quoted portions of Romans Chapter eight of the Holy Bible. Everything seems to have turned out for his good.

In all the toil he knew it was going to end someday. “I knew God had a plan for my life, even when I traveled on foot for several miles because I could not afford transportation.

Joe Mettle said God was with him when he sat for the SSS private candidates’ examination and I passed in two tranches.

This afforded him the opportunity not to do draftsmanship but marketing in the university.

Again he says that has turned out for his good.

God has blessed him immensely through music.

“Whoever I have become today is God. God might have used many men to help me but the credit entirely belongs to Him.

“God kept my mind intact. No man can claim credit for what God has done for me. I am most grateful to God for my life. God is able to do all things.

“It does not a matter where you or who you are, God can still make you what he created you for. At the appointed time, it will come to pass.”

Gospel Music is ministry and business – Jayana

Jayana

Emerging Ghanaian Gospel Musician, Jemima Annor Yeboah known in showbiz as Jayana has said that gospel music is a calling and business, urging fellow musicians to learn both sides of the business.

Speaking on The Late Nite Celebrity Show with Foster Romanus on e.TVGhana, the “Victory” song composer said “Gospel music is Ministry and Business. It is Ministry because it is a calling from God and it is a Business because you get money from it”.

According to her, although it is a calling from GOD to do Gospel Music but she needs to take money for her performance for her upkeep.

“Though it is a ministry but I need to take money; if not, how do i fuel my car, travel for shows, and even get money to pay for my music to be played on TV” Jayana added.

She said some people criticized her for the Nigerian accent and costumes used in her victory song video but she did not target only Ghanaians for that song.

“Some people complained about the Costumes and accent used in my victory song and music but I make the song for the whole Africa”.

She, however, said Ghanaians should watch out for her next song.

Abena Ruthy

Gospel artiste Abena Ruthy, who is vying for the position of 2nd Vice President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), has said women should be given equal opportunities but must be ready to take up challenges.

When asked how she intends to deal with the controversies that surrounds MUSIGA if she wins Abena Ruthy said, “Institutions are bound to have issues so long as there are diverse stakeholders, even private institutions suffer the same.

“The only difference is that theirs hardly becomes a public spectacle. What we need to do more as a Union, is to continue to build member confidence through initiatives that will inure to their benefit.

“So I will support the executive team with ideas attained from my 14 years in banking and administrative work as well as experience gained in leading the women in Gospel music,” she said.

Giving an overview of what she is bringing on board Abena Ruthy said, “I will support the executive body to implement strategies that will benefit all members and help bridge that gap between leadership and members with my experience as President of Women in Gospel Music, having held the group together for five years.”

Abena Ruthy is the Founder and Executive Director of Diamond Africa Foundation (DAF) which is into advocacy for a better youth for Africa. She is also the CEO of Incredible Cleaning and Trading Services, President of Women in Gospel Music and Vice President of Christian Music Association of Ghana (CMAG).

Wearing ‘Kaba And Slit’ limits my performance on stage – Joyce Blessing reveals

unnamed

In a Facebook post yesterday 13th June, 2019, the Repent hit maker explains why she sometimes puts on trouers during ministrations and not our Ghanaian outfit “kaba and slit” which have been suggested by some Christians as the most decent costume for female Gospel artistes.

According to Joyce Blessing, due to her style of performance which is quite energetic, she feels uncomfortable and not able to make moves during her performance in “kaba and slit” outfit.

Even though the singer has given a tangible reason as to why she puts on trousers, some fans still lambast her saying whatever the Bible has said about women wearing trousers is final and that she should not wear it at all, while a section of the fans also lauded her assertion.

Joyce Blessing was recently in the news for winning an award from Kenya at the 2019 Maranatha Global Worship Music Awards.
