As the countdown continues towards November 4 – the official date for ‘The God Factor’ album release, dynamic worshipper and songwriter Eugene Zuta has unveiled the final album tracklist.

The ‘Woso’ singer is ready to unleash a total praise and worship experience into our hearts once again in this new nine (9) track project recorded live in Takoradi in late 2019.

All songs on the album were written and composed by Eugene Zuta with others such as Baaba Enim (Co-writer of Papa), Henry Datsomor, David Pinkrah playing the roles in the arrangement of some songs. All songs on the album were produced by KODA.

The foretaste of this timely album was experienced in the two singles released earlier this year. Okasa, the first single from the album is a song written by Minister Eugene Zuta back in 2003 for Echoes of Calvary of GHAFES – UCC chapter and was ministered live and unrehearsed during the live recording.

Coming on the heels of ‘Okasa’ was ‘Papa (My Father)‘, a song urging us to place our hope in God as our Father based on His track record.

Judging from these two songs, there is more to be experienced from this project by the renowned worship leader.

Album will be available from the 4th of November on all digital stores.

118334296_2782362065372167_89450204549229451_n-e1601463917611

Gospel musician MOG Music has indicated that his recent award at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) was just a plus to his craft.

He told Prince Benjamin on Class91.3FM’s Class Drive that being adjudged the Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2020 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) has not caused any change in his life or focus.

Rather, the Royal House Chapel International pastor described the award as an additional contribution in his career growth.

“I won’t say it has changed my life.

“I think I’m very focused on my music and the plan that I have for my music.

“So, if the journey I’m travelling with my level of focus has been able to attract one, then it means when I continue, I can attract others, so, basically, I’m just doing me”.

“It’s an addition. It adds to my CV. People get to know that I’m a VGMA award winner,” he said.

He also disclosed that by winning that award, he fulfilled his head pastor’s wish.

“He was very pleased with it.

“It is something that he has been praying for; that one of the gospel musicians in his church will win VGMA.

“By the grace of God, I’m the first to do that,” he added.

He admitted that though those laurels increase or add value, “in terms of my production and what I’m looking at achieving in the industry, I’m still focused on it”, adding that he will not let the award derail his focus.

MOG Music is a vocalist, songwriter, instrumentalist and has songs like ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Be Lifted’ among many others to his credit.

Emmanuel Smith unveils new uplifting single ‘So Good’

artworks-000448049979-r9lluh-t500x500

UK-based Ghanaian gospel artist and The Voice UK alumni Emmanuel Smith unveils new single “So Good”, a move which has enthralled and thrilled his supporters in equal measure.

The Afro inspired up-tempo song boasts a modern groove with its hard-hitting lyric and vocal which sees the spirit-filled worshipper get candid about the goodness and mercy of God.

We are certainly living in unprecedented times and Emmanuel is no stranger to speaking on relevant issues that plague his generation. The song centres on the daily challenges of waking up feeling downcast but deciding to pray and give every pain and burden to God. It’s based also on the scripture which encourages us as believers to count our blessings and begin to name them in order while not forgetting the goodness of God.

Speaking on the song, the singer said “So many people if not most, are going through so much especially in these times of uncertainties around our world. I believe this song carries a message that will encourage and edify a lot of people. It has a danceable vibe to it too that will surely encourage people to celebrate this gift called life”.

‘So good’ which was written by Emmanuel Smith and produced by Joe Wilson, follows his single ‘Mighty God’ feat. Charles Dada which was released in May 2020.

The song ‘So Good was released on October 26 and a music video to follow on November 1.

Joe Mettle shares testimony on his ‘Wind of Revival’ album

joe_mettle_raw7

Award-winning gospel musician, Joe Mettle, has opened up on how God directed him on the release of his ‘Wind of Revival’ album.

In an interview with Kay Official on the Myd-Morning Radio Show on Y102.5FM Kumasi, he confessed that the year he released that album was one of the years in which he saw proper change because God had told him that he was going to cause a change.

According to him, he had tried several times to record the songs and he had planned to put the songs on the ‘Encounter’ album but it did not work.

He also tried to put it on the ‘God of Miracles’ album but God told him to hold on with that as well till it was time for the Wind of Revival’ album when God finally told him that it was time to let those songs come out.

“We would rehearse, about to record and something would come up so we wouldn’t record. And sometimes, we would record but it wouldn’t come out as we expected so we don’t use it.”

“Wind of Revival itself was in the year that God told me that He was going to cause a change. That he was going to cause a revival not only in my life but in the life of the people, in the world, and these are the messages that He wants me to speak out there”, he shared.

The singer gave his testimony on how they were able to do so much without having to go through the regular stress where they had to get people to support the project.

“God was just opening doors and people were just coming our way with support. Not only that, people were testifying things that God was doing in their lives as a result of the singles that we released even before the Wind of Revival album, and on the day itself that we had the concert, it was just something else”, he added.

Gospel musician Joyce Blessing has rained curses on her former publicist, Juliana Ntiamoah, popularly known as Julie-Jay Kanze in a leaked audio making rounds on social media

In the audio message sighted by Ghanaweb.com, the actress accused her former publicist of being behind the reason her content keeps getting flagged on YouTube.

According to the visibly angry gospel musician, the email account that keeps reporting her songs to be flagged belongs to Julie Jay, and knowing her to be the computer wizard she is, she firmly believes she is the one behind the account.

“Juliana Ntiamoah, that is your name, the way you will suffer, it will affect your entire generation. I have done you no wrong, whatever you asked I paid. This curse will manifest heavily on your life because I have done you no wrong, yet you want to cause me pain…” she said in the audio.

Joyce Blessing who had a fall out with her former publicist and manager husband a few months ago claims that she had paid Julie Jay all that is due her and does not understand why she would want to cause her pain and suffering.

“The day you will sit behind a computer and type my name Joyce Blessing, may God strike you with this curse. No man will find you attractive, you will go up and down aimlessly till you go back to your village” … Joyce Blessing said.

She swore on her life that her publicist will know no peace until she kneels before her and begs for forgiveness.

She said even though no one was hurt, the armed robbers managed to get away with her phones, laptops and cash they had in the house.

“They took all our phones (3 phones: My Samsung s9+, my machine is gone, iPhones, 2 laptops, a tablet and made away with all cash we got at home, we found the bags and stuff they searched outside. It looks like they entered through the balcony, which is very unbelievable, how they managed to enter our bedroom, picked our phones and locked us inside beats my mind. WE ARE HOME PHONELESS AND CASHLESS AT THE MOMENT.”

Ceccy Twum shocks Stacy with revelations about Nacee, OJ, Joe Mettle

24637127.295

The host of ‘Restoration with Stacy’ was utterly shocked and had goose-bumps following Ceccy Twum’s account of how some male gospel musicians have contributed immensely to her musical career.

Ceccy Twum who took her turn on the show mentioned that her most popular and successful song ‘Nyame Aye Awie’ was composed by colleague Minister OJ. The interesting part of the story, according to the songstress is the fact that OJ did so without charge.

“One day, OJ called me and said he had a song for me; he was of the greatest conviction if I sing the song, it will be a hit and miracles will follow. He came home, we rehearsed it,” she recalled the 2011 event.

“I was pregnant at the time… I went to University of Ghana to perform and it was amazing. Nacee and No Tribe were there to perform as well. I had heard his name but never met him before. I wanted to see him but the crowd was massive so I left after my performance.”

“The next day, OJ called me and said Nacee wanted to speak to me. Nacee commended me for my performance and expressed interest in recording my album. He came home… When OJ brought the song, I went straight to Nacee. He produced the song pro bono. He produced the album as well,” Ceccy Twum narrated.

A similar gesture emanated from Joe Mettle when the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year composed ‘Di Wo Hene’.

“My latest single ‘Di Wo Hene’ was composed by Joe Mettle. He called that he had a song for me. I recorded it in his studio and featured him. He gave me the song for free, featured on it for free and shot the video for free,” said Ceccy Twum.

“Wow! God bless them. This has given me goose-bumps,” Stacy Amoateng reacted.

Meanwhile, Ceccy Twum in the interview monitored by GhanaWeb observed that the gospel music industry is bedeviled by petty squabbles because the sector is dominated by females.

She posited 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.
