No more collaboration with Gospel acts – Joyce Blessing

joycc

While some in the Gospel music fraternity believe it is not biblical for gospel musicians to collaborate with secular acts, there are still others who believe it is all in furtherance of God’s work and the I Swerve You hitmaker, Joyce Blessing, may fall in the latter category.

The award-winning Gospel artiste, who plans on working with Shatta Wale, Sarkodie and Stonebwoy, says she is done with featuring gospel artistes on her works.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz on Tuesday, October 1, Joyce Blessing said she preferred to work with secular musicians and had vowed not to feature any Gospel musician on her songs because of her observation about them over the years.

“Apart from some Gospel musicians refusing to work with me when I reached out to them, the lifestyle of most of them are nothing to write home about. They actually don’t practice what they preach,” she said.

Joyce Blessing said her decision to work with secular artistes was a well thought out plan by her management after seeing how hypocritical some of the Gospel musicians were.

“It is sad that your fellow gospel musician will stab you in the back when they should rather be there for you. At least, most of the secular artistes I know are not hypocrites like the gospel musicians and I will choose any secular artiste any day,” she added.

The Heavy Price hitmaker also stated that there was nothing wrong with a Gospel musician collaborating with a secular musician to achieve a common goal.

“I have in the past featured the likes of A.B Crentsil, Lilwin and the late Jewel Ackah on my songs and trust me, the impact I had was just marvellous.

“This is not to say I have not featured Gospel musicians on my songs but moving forward, with what I have observed, I think I will stick to working with secular musicians,” she explained.

Known for songs such as Nyame Aguamma, Repent, Heavy Price, Boot 4 Boot, I Swerve You and La’ Mia Praise, Joyce Blessing said she was planning on working with more secular artiste.

“I know some Ghanaians will have problems with that but hey, I don’t really mind if my aim is to win souls for God through these secular artistes,” she said.

Joyce Blessing will be releasing her latest single, Adam Nana, recorded by sound engineer, Kaywa tomorrow, Friday, October 4.

The song talks about God’s love for his children which led to Him letting His son die on the cross for them.

88728878.295

Veteran Ghanaian gospel musician, Cindy Thompson has spoken against Mmebusem’s latest video in which he was mimicking Jesus Christ.

Speaking in an interview with Accra FM’s Nana Romeo which was monitored by zionfelix.net, Cindy condemned the actor’s action.

She said it is not right for him to use Jesus’ name in vain.

“What is his reason? If it is for people to laugh then what he is doing is not right. Because whatever we do in the name of Christ must uplift his image. If he is to do it in the right way…God will use him to win more souls for the Kingdom,” the Kwankyerefo Jesus singer stated.

“He should advise himself…if he didn’t receive any directives from God through prayers to act that way, then he should be careful because nobody can be like Christ. If God has given him the talent to act, there are so many things he can act about but not to mimic Jesus Christ in a fun way,” Cindy Thompson added.

After the video went viral, a section of Ghanaians has eulogized Mmebusem for his creativity while others, mainly Christians are condemning his action.

“Kanye is born again, saved by Christ”- Kim Kardashian tells ‘The View’

gettyimages-1167258362

Reality star Kim Kardashian West was a guest on “The View” Thursday where she spoke about her husband’s religious beliefs and revealed that he sometimes hosts pop-up churches around the country through his music ministry, Sunday Service.

“Kanye started this to really heal himself and it was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family,” Kardashian West told host Sunny Hostin who asked about the Sunday Service events. “He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ.”

“People always ask, ‘What are you worshiping?’ It is a Christian service, as a musical ministry. They talk about Jesus and God,” she said.

When asked if preachers are included, the new prison reform activist said “sometimes.”

She added: “When he goes to another church, which he has, they’ve shown up and done these surprise little pop-up Sunday Services in other churches. Sometimes, at the [meeting] in Calabasas, he’ll have friends that are pastors that are in town get up and speak. But for the most part, it’s just a musical ministry.”

She also emphasized that her husband does not have a nonprofit status to make his Sunday Service an official church but said what he’s doing, “is for God and it’s a Christian church.”

West has made a dramatic change after starting up his very own church gatherings, Sunday Service and it appears his upcoming album will reflect his gospel gatherings.

In late August, his wife posted video clips of Sunday service on her Insta story and snuck in a photo of a piece of paper next to an open Bible containing West’s new album title Jesus Is King, track listing and a release date set for Sept. 27.

The tracklist for the album is completely laced with references to Jesus, God, or the Bible. “Baptized,” “Sweet Jesus,” “Garden,” “Selah” and “Water” are some of the tracks, to name a few. West and his Sunday Service choir premiered “Water” during a Sunday Service session at Coachella Easter weekend.

West began Sunday Service meetings this year. As of now, the events happen every Sunday and include gospel music, some prayer, and preaching

The 2019 edition of ‘Men of Worship’ concert dubbed ‘The Spirit of Worship’ successfully launched

IMG_20190914_091711_160-1050×525

The 16th edition of the annual ‘all-male’ gospel worship concert, ‘Men of Worship’ was officially launched on Friday the 13th of September 2019  at the Maxlot Hotel .

This year’s edition with the theme “The Spirit of Worship ” will take place on the 6th of October 2019 at the ICGC Calvary Temple in Sakumono.

The group which consists of various male worship leaders has been in existence for over 15 years and has nurtured some great gospel icons like Nat Abbey and Nii Okai, and many others.

The organization of this year’s men of worship concert has been taken over by Glorious Media Time, a Christian media body who have promised that this year’s event will be the biggest and will also touch lives and have an impact on many of lives.

The group will also release two new singles at the event which is geared towards Men of Worship full album to be released in 2020.

Mr. OB Nartey, who spoke for the organizing committee stressed on the fact that Men of Worship is definitely not a replica of what we know popularly today as ‘Women in Worship’. He continued that aside the fact that Men of Worship had been in existence for over 15 years, this not ‘Men in Worship’ but ‘Men of Worship’ which carries different meanings.

Mr. OB Nartey also passionately spoke about the involvement of gospel bloggers in gospel concert as being low, because of the low patronage of their services by the gospel community and event organizers. He commended the idea of Christians content curators and media set apart to promote gospel content and entreated the indulgence of fellow gospel musician not to look further as we help ourselves within the fraternity.
