From a shipping container to the White House

Eritrea

Eritrean gospel singer, Helen Berhane, who was held in a shipping container for 32 months because of her faith, has met US President Donald Trump at the White House.

She was there as part of a group who had survived religious persecution.

When she was given the opportunity to talk, she explained the ordeal she went through in Eritrea and highlighted how her church members are still imprisoned.

The majority are in arbitrary detention and none of them has been charged in a court of law.

Ms Berhane was arrested in the capital, Asmara, and spent 32 months in custody. She was released in 2006 after becoming very ill.

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’”.

Followed by Jonathan Nelson and the other artistes lined up on the bill. The Highlight of the show was when Dr. Badu came in and took patrons through most of his songs via worship and praises.

In an interview with Dr.Badu he hinted that he had always prayed to God that he wanted to make History by gathering close to 5000 people to worship and praise God just like how secular acts do and at the end of the concert, God showed up and history was made.

“This is the Lord’s doing and we did this together. We made history together and I am grateful to all the artistes that performed and believed in this event”, he reiterated.

Sonnie Badu also recounted how he was met with opposition from many friends when he hatched the idea of the Invasion concert.

“Many friends and acquaintances advised against it, saying this feat was too difficult for a gospel event to attain”, he added.

He further expressed gratitude to all who patronized the event while asking them to watch out for Invasion 2020 and apologized to the many who were turned home as the DAR Constitutional Hall which sits 4,700 people got filled to the brim.
