Gospel musician Boadiwaa rebrands to Nsroma

Nsroma1-1-626×375

Gospel minstrel, songwriter, and recording artiste Nsroma Delanyo Amoateng, formerly known as Boadiwaa, is about to release a new song.

Asked what necessitated the name change from Boadiwaa to Nsroma, she said: “there comes a time when a caterpillar will have to become a butterfly and through a painful almost death inflicting process, this change happens.“

She felt she had gotten a time in her life that she needed a change and one of the things she felt strongly about changing was her name.

The change of name was to reflect where she is going and what God is about to do in her life. Nsroma means ‘star’ in the Akan language and for her, it’s synonymous with shining in excellence.

Her desire is to spread the love, presence, and power of God to the nations through her music and the word of God. Talking of the power of God, she shared a mind-blowing testimony of how God healed her of a hole in her brain.

With a lot of conviction, she said “he who has begun a good work will bring it to an expected end”. This is the message in her new song featuring the award-winning MOG Music titled ‘Reason’.

It talks about finding reasons to praise God in spite of everything that happens in our lives knowing that all things are working together for our good and he will complete the good work he has started in our lives.

‘Reason’ will be released on ‘February 27, 2021.

Nsroma is also known for songs such as ‘Adom’, ‘Eye Onoa’ and ‘Note from God’.

I Believe The Biggest Issue Is Distrust – TD Jakes Shares Thought On The COVID-19 Vaccine

TD-Jakes-on-COVID-19-Vaccine

Approximately 40% of Americans say they will not take the COVID-19 vaccine, with many expressing concerns about possible side effects.

In an effort to better inform and enlighten the public about the COVID-19 vaccine, global spiritual leader Bishop T.D. Jakes has brought together several of the world’s leading coronavirus experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease official, for a panel discussion titled Conversations with America: Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Conversations with America is a semi-regular, data-driven forum developed by Jakes to help Americans navigate difficult discussions. In addition to Fauci, other panelists will include:

Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, a viral immunologist and lead scientist on the coronavirus research team at the National Institute of Infectious and Allergic Disease’s Vaccine Research Center. Corbett leads the team of scientists behind the Moderna Inc. COVID-19 vaccine.

Dr. Onyema Ogbuaguan infectious disease specialist, associate professor at Yale School of Medicine, and principal investigator of the Pfizer COVID-19 trial at the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation

Jill Waggoner, a Dallas-based family medicine practitioner, author, and health and wellness expert will co-host the discussion.

The event will premiere exclusively on the official T.D. Jakes YouTube channel on Monday, Jan. 25, at noon CT.

“There are many hurdles to finding a solution to the pandemic, including the supply and distribution of the vaccine,” said Jakes. “But I believe the biggest issue is distrust. Distrust is understandably high among African Americans, who have faced decades of unethical medical experiments and disparate treatment in health care. This Conversations with America event will provide the public with knowledge and education, but also with hope.”

Distrust of the vaccine is particularly high among African Americans. A December survey by the Pew Research Center found that only 42% of African Americans say they would take the vaccine, compared with 63% of Hispanics and 61% of white adults.

Conversations with America began as an annual public-opinion study exploring the current perceptions about a broad spectrum of issues, including economic opportunity, criminal justice and national security across all demographics.

About The Potter’s House
Located in Dallas, The Potter’s House is a 30,000-member nondenominational, multicultural church and humanitarian organization led by Bishop T. D. Jakes, twice featured on the cover of Time magazine as America’s Best Preacher and as one of the nation’s 25 Most Influential Evangelicals. The Potter’s House has five locations: The Potter’s House of Dallas, The Potter’s House of Fort Worth, The Potter’s House of North Dallas, The Potter’s House of Denver, and The Potter’s House OneLA.

Social media more profitable than CD sales – Ohemaa Mercy deflates claims by old artistes

67915060.295

One of the major problems people especially veteran musicians in today’s entertainment industry are facing is the advent of social media and its influence on sales.

Whiles the new crop of musicians praise the new platform, the old ones who are not acquainted with the new opportunity say it has rather come to collapse the business.

According to some veteran musicians, social media has made them lose a lot of money after it took over the traditional method of album selling.

But speaking on Kumasi based Pure FM in an interview with Hammer Nti on the show Hammer Time, Ohemaa Mercy insisted that sales on social media is far better than albums sales.

“By releasing single music, it helps us in promotion and also increases the impact of the music you release”, she said.

“The trend has changed and many things have changed in the music industry. Now the social media is so powerful therefore the avenue of the social media including Youtube, iTunes among other make more sales than album sales and CDs”, Ohemaa Mercy said in her interview
“Releasing singles make it possible for you to get more money”, she added.

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.”

MOGmusic Unveils His 5th Gospel Album “The Experience” – Available Now!

118334296_2782362065372167_89450204549229451_n-e1601463917611

Pastor Nana Yaw Boakye-Yiadom, popularly known in the music space as MOGmusic has released his brand new 5th studio album titled “The Experience”. The new album is available for streaming and download on all major music platforms.

The 8-track new album is a set of songs recorded live at his “New Wine 20” flagship worship event held at the Royal House Chapel International (Ahenfie), just before the lockdown period earlier in March.

The Experience album is a perfect blend of worship revival songs (such as Jesus and Living God), faith-building songs (Redeemed, Holy Spirit, and Not Ashamed) as well as unadulterated praise (God be Praise and Local Praise). All songs on the album come with the simplicity of melody.

In reiterating this fact, the renowned worshipper and “Be Lifted” crooner MOGmusic at his album listening session says this project is one of his best works and it is tailored towards the need for a new experience with God.

Notable voices on this album include “Ekwueme” singer Prospa Ochimana (Living God), Preye Odede (King of Glory), and one of the regular features on MOGmusic’s projects – the US based Michael Stucky (Holy Spirit).

In 2019, MOG gave us a glimpse into what we have now by releasing his 4-track Xperience with Love EP. The EP consisted of very inspiring songs such as “Hallelujah“, “Jehovah”, “Amazing God ft Ps Isaiah Fosu-Kwakye”, and “God of Miracle ft Edwin Dadson”

Congratulating MOGmusic for the new project and his contribution to the contemporary gospel music in Ghana, friends from the media including Abeiku Santa, KOD, Fiifi Folson, and others praise MOGmusic for hard work and his rise to be one of Ghana’s gospel icons today.

 

Album can be streamed on Apple Music and other streaming platforms

119989705_121490289473734_1888411790355411947_n

Trinity International University of Ambassadors welcomes the Founder and Senior Pastor of US-based RockHill Church Dr. Sonnie Badu into his newly appointed role as the Dean and Professor of Music.

Dr. Sonnie Badu whose impeccable love for the art and music has led him to the pursuit of knowledge including his latest as Honorary Doctorate in Musicology saw this as another opportunity to be used as a medium of blessing to impact the next generation.

“Humbled … to @trinityiua thank you for this honor and I pray God uses me to add to what you already have achieved … Now let the hard work begin … In order to achieve this and make this faculty one of the best in the world, I will be bringing a few trusted legends together as lectures” – He shares on Social Media.

The event which took place over the weekend places the highly respected Ghanaian Gospel star at the peak of his music career, a well-recognized position, and a higher influence in the African gospel industry.

In August 2020, BoomPlay recognized Sonnie Badu’s achievement on the platform as the most-streamed Ghanaian gospel artiste for his album Colours of Africa: Live in London. This is an album that earned a million streams and for his single Baba garnering a total of 500,000 streams.

Sonnie Badu has been off the active music scene as a result of other responsibilities (which obviously includes being a founder and Pastor a Christian denomination), but he recently made a strong reminder that is not gone entirely in his latest release “Pillar of Fire”.

We wish him all the very best in his new role!
