Nacee Readies New Album; First Single ‘Mpaeb)’ Out March 11

Nacee

The last album released by musician, Nacee, ‘Counselor 1’ – garnered 11 nominations at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and ultimately won the ‘Album of the Year’ category; and after almost 3 years of less activity, Nacee is back with another quality album.

The first single off the new album, ‘Time With God’ is titled ‘Mpaeb)’ (Prayer), which, for the umpteenth time, sees Nacee assume his usual role of a songwriter, producer, mixer, lead vocalist and backing vocalist – all on just one song!

Under the auspices of Cebex Music Production, the audio and music video for ‘Mpaeb)’ are ready for nationwide release on Monday, March 11, 2019 on all music platforms.

Touted not only for his eclectic voice and production skills, Nacee also brings his prowess in songwriting to bear on the new single, where he sings about how as humans, we are nothing and need the grace, mercies and presence of God in our lives. He literally sings about the fact that we are nothing but just pencils in the hands of the creator, God.

The production has almost everything – a reggae base incorporated with ear-pleasing instruments with a highlife feel, giving ‘Mpaeb)’ such an upbeat, yet soulful and inspiring groove.

The music video to the single does not shift away from the core message of the song, as Director, McWillies, produces such a classy interpretation of the concept, originally drawn by Nacee for the video.

‘Time With God’ is set for release before the close of the first quarter of the year and is expected to touch lives, change mindsets, offer blessings and surpass all the feats chalked by the ‘Counselor 1’ outing.

Don’t call me a pastor – Kaywa

Kaywa-900×515

Renowned producer David Kojo Kyei, popularly known as Kaywa, who was recently ordained as a man of God says he doesn’t want to be referred to as such.

According to him, he is still mindful of producing songs to make a living.

Kaywa was conferred with a Doctor of Divinity certificate from the United Apostolic Theology Seminary last month.

He shared the certificate which makes him an ordained minister of God on Instagram with the caption: “Totally grateful to God…psalm127:1 #hemadeaway #thankyougodforeverything #JesusChrist.”

But speaking on Adom FM’s Work and Happiness show on Tuesday, Kaywa, when asked if he should be referred to as a pastor rather than a producer, replied saying:

“I am a businessman. But in my area of business I share Christ. I have always been a sound engineer. Don’t call me a pastor. By their fruits you shall know them,” he told OPD, host of the show.

Pentecost Church ‘chasing’ Ofosu Ampofo assassination tape

Pentecost

The leadership of the Church of Pentecost Ghana has called for the leaked audio recording of one its elder, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo, a National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has had his reputation as a servant of God come into question after a two-hour explosive audio recording emerged on Tuesday, in which he is heard calling on members of his party to assassinate political opponents of the NDC and carry out kidnappings apparently to create the impression that Ghana is not safe.

Even though the NDC is seeking to suggest that the tape is a doctored one, the Pentecost Church appears strongly concerned about its reputation and is, therefore, demanding the tape to enable it to authenticate if it is true or not.

In a swift response today, the National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, while admitting the voice ‘sounds like’ that of the NDC’s National Chairman, Mr. Ampofo.

He, however, observed that they are doctored tapes designed as diversionary tactic to provide the government with a reprieve from the content of a documentary on illegal mining [galamsey] by investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, which puts the government in bad light.

“The tape is doctored, treat it with the contempt it deserves, it has all the trappings of diversions from the illegal mining investigations by Anas,” he told Daniel Dadzie Wednesday on the SMS.

In a twist of events, his deputy, Kweku Boahen, told Adom FM that the voice was Mr. Ofosu Ampofo’s and that the contents of the recordings reflect what transpired at the party’s meeting.

The move to authenticate the tape, according to the church, is to enable leadership o take a decision on the status of Mr. Ofosu Ampofo as elder and whether he should still be allowed to preach in the church.

In the two- hour tape, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo was also heard calling for what he described as a “relentless” war against the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa.

The revelation comes at a time Ghana is battling with the menace of kidnappings with several school girls already kidnapped in Western Region.

Oral sex is unbiblical – Dr. Lawrence Tetteh condemns act

85142627

It has emerged that reports suggesting that Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, a renowned world evangelist has endorsed oral sex is untrue.

Dr Lawrence Tetteh who was speaking at the Maiden edition of Duvet experience on the topic sex and christianity , shared some strong stance on the matter of Oral sex – a statement which has since been misconstrued to mean he endorsed the act.

In an exclusive interview with theindependentghana.com, the respected evangelist cleared the air by strongly declaring his stance against Oral Sex.

“I don’t endorsed Oral Sex because the Bible does not endorse it. It’s unbiblical. It’s even unhygienic. What I said was you can’t restrict how people choose to express their sex life”

According Dr Lawrence Tetteh, Oral sex is unbiblical adding that it’s even unhealthy and the main reason behind many sexually transmitted diseases.

“When it comes to sex, most married Christians just do what works for them. If they have been blessed enough to have discovered something that brings satisfaction, pleasure, closeness, and climax, they most likely will continue that practice. However, some are plagued with guilt because they wonder if what they’re doing is sinful.” he added

Gospel artistes cannot do good music without money – Joe Mettle

download

Gospel Singer Joe Mettle has revealed gospel musicians need to focus on the business aspect of their work to create quality music.

Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, the singer said, even though Gospel musicians are meant to use their works to win souls for God, “how else will the person be able to do good music if there is no money to fuel it?”

Joe Mettle stated he believes in producing good music that can stand the test of time and touch the hearts of people which one needs money to do.

“If you do quality work it goes far when it goes far. It attracts people into the ministry and also more people patronise,” he explained.

In 2017, singer Ohemaa Mercy speaking on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM advised gospel acts to focus more on the music than making money. She said it would be better if gospel artistes always listen to God and be conscious about gospel music work than focus on money.

However, Joe Mettle told KMJ, “we are focusing on what God has called us to do by seeking the kingdom and all other things, the money and business is part of the other things.”

He revealed he puts earnings from selling his music back into promoting his career and ministry.

The “My Everything” singer stated he wants to his music to be relevant decades from now “I should listen to the music, watch the video and still feel proud that I put much into it.”

He stated because he knows producing good music is expensive, he created his own live recording studio.

“It helps to keep it going and the money I make goes back into recording sessions,” he added.

Joe Mettle said as a gospel singer he believes in also following the spirit (of God) when working “the spirit is good, you add that but the song needs to be of good quality too.”

Joe Mettle stated people are allowed to criticise but the artistes cannot please everybody, saying it is enough “once I know in my heart that I am doing what God has called me to do and God is pleased with it.”

He told KMJ the fact that critics do not see Gospel artistes win souls does not mean they are not winning souls “its not everything, we put out there.”

Don’t use prayer when common sense should be applied – Pastor Brian Amoateng to Christians

amoateng-e1464629205915

President of Brian Jones Outreach Ministries, Pastor Brian Amoateng has waded into the discussion about the over-dependence of prayer by a cross-section of Ghanaian Christians with some very interesting and mind-boggling views.

In a quick chit-chat with zionfelix.net ahead of the much-anticipated Kumasi edition of the highly rated International Youth Empowerment Summit (iYES), the UK-based Ghanaian pastor admitted fully that prayer is something that is very important in the lives of humans, especially people who describe themselves as Christians.

However, the Founder and Leader of London Prayer Center noted that there are times where common sense should be used instead of too much prayer. He made the example of a sick person who might likely need to get to the hospital for drugs in order to be well but will decide to remain at the prayer center and continue to pray.

The founder of the iYES added that even though God is the ultimate healer in the world, there are times he will use a doctor to grant healing mercies to the people who follow and worship him. Pastor Brian, therefore, urged Christians to try as much as possible to use their common sense sometimes and stop the overdependence on prayers.

The iYES foundation and the National Youth Authority are set to storm the Garden City of Ghana, Kumasi on the 15th – 17th March 2019 at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). Already, influential personalities like Emmanuel Asigri, Simon Ampofo, Chioma Akpotha, Pastor Eastwood Anaba, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, Jackie Appiah, Dr. Kwame Kyei, Kwame Adinkra, Dr. Kofi Abban, Mrs. Gyamfua Ababio, Lawyer Justin Kodua Frimpong, Dr. Paul Effah, Kwadwo Nkansah Lilwin, and many others are billed to give patrons some very touching speeches.

The Kumasi edition of iYES will have as its special guest Baafuor Dr. Ossei Hyeamann Brantua VI (Otumfuor’s Manwerehene)

Stop pressuring me to marry – Patience Nyarko

patience-nyarko

If there is one question Gospel musician, Patience Nyarko is getting tired of being asked, it is ‘when are you getting married.’

According to Patience, she is being pressured by her family, friends and fans to get married because they believe she is aging.

“Members from my church have also added their voice to it and it sometimes becomes unbearable,” she told Showbiz last Saturday.

Patience, who is not so cool with the pressure revealed that not everyone was born to marry. “Marriage is not a race and you need to be sure of who you are settling down with.

“I have so many of my friends who have regretted getting married and I don’t want to end up like them,” she said.

To Patience, marriage is not the yardstick for determining that a woman is successful. “In our part of the world, a woman in her 30s is seen in a certain manner if she is not married which to me is very wrong,” she added.

Away from her marriage issues, Patience Nyarko, who returned from an European tour two weeks ago said she was grateful to Ghanaians for patronising her Obi Nyanime song which became a massive hit.

She explained that it still baffles her how Obi Nyanime became so popular and disclosed that she is coming back big time this year.

Patience also has songs like W’afom Kwan, Eboboba, Atigya, Wadaada, Ebenezer and Menwu. She has been nominated in six categories at this year 3Music Awards and said she is hopeful of going home with an award.

Obi Nyanime has been nominated in the Viral Song of the Year, Song of the Year, Gospel Song of the Year, Gospel Act of the Year, Music Woman of the Year and Best Collaboration of the Year categories.
