About a month ago, Ghanaian renowned gospel artist and worship leader Jeshurun Okyere officially announced he has rebranded to Eric Jeshrun and has solidified that stand with another live and powerful rendition of his newest song Yahweh, featuring Jerbette Production crew at The Connection 2019.

The gospel brand who is known for his powerful worship ministration and very popular and well patronized annual worship program ‘August Worship’ explained that the change of name was necessary because, before his shot to fame people already knew him to be Eric Jeshrun and not Jeshurun Okyere.

Minister Jeshrun further explained that apart from his personal brand re-positioning vision,  people have also complained countless times about the difficulty in finding him on YouTube and other platforms because as they were used to the Eric Jeshrun, hence the need for the rebrand.

Eric Jeshrun who is also the ‘Healing Streams’ crooner that has become popular in Ghana as a result of the COVID-19, featured one of the finest gospel music production house ‘Jerbette Production’ on this new and powerful rendition.

TRUE LEGEND! In Celebration of Rev. Martinson Larbi: A Master of Worship

108779062_10164043986365061_7921435927388370470_o

The veneration of legends is essential to the growth of the creative industry and at this moment, we choose to celebrate the personality of Rev. Ferdinand Larbi Martinson – a true servant of the gospel.

Gospel music continues to serve as an important instrument to propagate the gospel courtesy the persistent contribution of some individuals who have dedicated themselves to the task and one of such standouts is the legendary Rev. Ferdinand Larbi Martinson.

The fable of Ghanaian gospel music and its journey through the times, with the sole purpose of uplifting the name of God while winning souls – cannot be written incomplete without the critical mention of Rev. Martinson Larbi.

Intriguingly, Rev. Martinson’s legend is not as loud as some of his peers in the gospel fraternity but his contribution to the growth and sustenance of gospel music has been overly profound and striking.

Rev. Martinson, who hails from Aburi in the Eastern Region of Ghana, started as a Teacher but the calling of the Lord to do gospel music, in its unadulterated form, was nothing to ignore or reject – making him a full-time gospel musician now.

Described by many as the ‘Master of Worship’,  the songwriter, singer, instrumentalist, and preacher has spent decades in the gospel industry, leaving remarkable footprints on the successes of many musicians in the gospel fraternity.

Through his dulcet voice, creativity, and dynamism, he has blessed the church and gospel music lovers with numerous powerful songs, many of which have become major conduit for exaltation and invoking the presence of God. Lifetime releases such as ‘Wofata’, ‘Kronkron’, ‘Adom’, ‘Tumi ye wode’, ‘Ye meho nsenkyerehene’, ‘Me dofo kesse’, ‘Adom ara k3k3’, ‘Adom nsuo’ among others have dominated worship songs ministered in our churches in the past three decades.

As a prolific songwriter, Rev. Martinson has written many inspiring songs for a number of Ghanaian gospel artistes, many of whom have become household names in the music industry in general. He has demonstrated his versatility and service by singing back-ups for almost all the celebrated gospel musicians in Ghana.

Award-winning gospel artists such as Elder Mireku, Jewel Ackah, Ohemaa Mercy, Cecilia Marfo, Gifty Osei, Nicholas Omane Acheampong, Ophelia Nyantakyi, Professor Kofi Abraham, have all benefited and continue to benefit from his exploits.

Although Rev. Martinson has enjoyed little recognition, beneficiaries of his talent and mentorship have recorded exceeding breakthrough in the gospel ministry and business, all of which reflects his selflessness and bigheartedness.

It is said that a true hero is not measured by the size of his strength but by the strength of his heart. Aside from enduring a grueling start in his musical career, Rev. Martinson persisted in his quest to make an indelible impact in the gospel industry, a drive that is few and far between.

In one of his interviews, he recounted how he almost gave up on music after being disappointed by many gospel artists who benefited from his free-handedness but failed to recognize his efforts.

“At some point, I took a painful decision to stop doing music after suffering a lot of disappointments. But what kept me moving was my father in music, Jewel Ackah who advised me to persist because we are working for God and not man. I am not interested in money. I am interested in serving God and using music to draw many people to Christ,” he recounted.

The lack of unity among gospel artists has been identified as one of the pressing issues troubling the growth of the industry. Some industry players have underscored the need for gospel artists to regard themselves as having a common purpose and collaborate to advance the kingdom business. In an era where the competition was keen among the gospel fraternity, Rev. Martinson defied the odds and featured Nicholas Omane Acheampong on a song – becoming the first gospel artist to do so.

Currently sojourned outside the country, he continues to lift the banner of Ghana and Christ around the world, leading choirs in mega churches and ministering to multitudes on diverse platforms.

Within a spate of two decades of glorifying God through the power of music, Rev. Martinson has produced 5 quality albums; Wofata-s3 wogye ayeyi (1999), Adom nsuo -worship (1999), Isaiah.54 worship-2002, Manna worship – 2005, Adom ara keke (Mix -2006), and More than gold worship & prayer -2010.

He currently out with a new single, Medo wo, available on all music streaming platforms.

He also has a seven piece gospel group called ‘Voices of the Ark’, touring the whole of Ghana to spread the gospel.

It is said that a country that does not recognize its heroes is not worth dying for and an industry that does not accord its legends the needed acknowledgment may not be worth sacrificing for – the reason it is imperative to tout the efforts of Rev. Martinson who had dedicated his lifetime projecting the gospel and aiding others to attain success – all to the glory of God.

Unsung legend Rev. Martinson Larbi

9d01070d-522a-4d61-8486-c5b5616b7587-768×1195

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ” – Colossians 3:23-24

The growing demonstration of ingratitude that has for years bedevilled Ghana’s gospel industry and the non-recognition of legends are largely to blame for the inability of the industry to flourish as an important wing of God’s ministry.

Gospel music, in spite of the growing challenges, continues to serve as an important instrument to propagate the gospel courtesy the persistent contribution of some few individuals who have dedicated themselves to the task.

One name that stands out among the few unsung heroes who are working devotedly to sustain the momentum is the legendary Reverend Ferdinand Larbi Martinson. In fact, any account on the evolution and growth of Ghana’s gospel industry would be incomplete without reference to Rev. Martinson.

A teacher by profession, Rev Martinson, who hails from Aburi in the Eastern Region of Ghana, is now a full time gospel musician. Described by many as the “master of worship” the song writer, singer, instrumentalist, and pastor has spent decades in the gospel industry, leaving remarkable footprints on the successes of many musicians in the gospel fraternity.

Through his dulcet voice, creativity and dynamism, he has blessed the church and gospel music lovers with numerous powerful songs, many of which have become a major conduit for exaltation and invoking the presence of God.

Lifetime releases such as “wofata , kronkron, adom, tumi ye wode, ye meho nsenkyerehene, me dofo kesse, adom ara k3k3, adom nsuo among others have dominated worship songs ministered in our churches in the past three decades.

It is said that a country that does not recognise its heroes is not worth dying for. Similarly, an industry that does not accord its legends the needed acknowledgment may not be worth sacrificing for. Unlike the likes of Rev. Martinson who would give their all beyond reward, many others may hang their boots in frustration – a situation that could wreck the prospects of the industry.

The time has come for us to honour our heroes while they are alive and appreciate their contributions to the industry and the church at large. This should not be necessarily monetary. Sometimes a one-paragraph sentence touting their successes can be gratifying.

How God changed Nigeria’s Nathaniel Bassey’s story in 2017

Nathaniel-Bassey1

Nathaniel Bassey is a gospel artiste, born in Lagos in 1978. He is popularly known for his song, “Imela”, “Onise Iyanu” and “Olowogbogboro”.

He is the brain behind the #HallelujahChallenge, where he worships God for an hour, from 12:00 mid-night to 1:00 am. He streams this event on his Instagram page and invites others to join him. In less than a month, the event had over 600,000 viewers. The HallelujahChallenge for 2020 was held from 4 to 24 February.

Bassey started his musical career in the church where he joined the Rhodes Orchestra and played the Trumpet for two years. Bassey was just a trumpeter until he composed a song during the visit to Stella Obasanjo, the late wife of a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. In 2018, Bassey was one of the leading artistes at Nigeria’s biggest Christian gathering, The Experience.

Few days back, he spoke with popular Lagos Pastor, Tony Rapu, on Instagram live chat and he revealed much about his life and career.

Everyone calls you Nathaniel Blow, how did you get that?

I served in the City of David for a long time (for over 10 years). I served as a trumpet player to my late mentor, Pastor Esko, and he asked us to put together a blast called Trumpet Blast. We would normally close out service with a trumpet blast. He would read the benediction and when he was done, he would say to me Nathaniel Blow and I would just sound the trumpet and that happened for years. People would call me Nathaniel Blow and I thought it was a very prophetic name to hold and there was no need to re-invent the wheel. So, my e-mail is Nathaniel Blow. My Instagram rage is Nathaniel Blow. My Twitter handle is Nathaniel Blow, so I think there is something prophetic about the name, so every time they call me I just have to blow.

Were you in the old Freedom Hall, at all?

No, I joined just immediately City of David started at Lagoon.

Tell us about Halleluyah Challenge: How did you come into it and what happened to make you phenomenon in the world?

Years ago, before Pastor Eskor died, he began a series on Halleluya. He did an extended study on Halleluya, that Halleluya was actually a lifestyle. It was a very interesting study. We would even dress like it literally. Halleluyah means to be foolish before God, and that was years ago. Years came and gone, I went to Isreal in 2017. I normally go to Isreal with some friends every year. We usually worship there morning and night for about 7 to 8 days and then we go on-site visit (tour).

One of those nights, a friend of mine began to prophesy that God was going to move mightily in our lives. Pastor Banjo said God was going to do a new thing, and that the spirit of God was about to change the face of the earth, and then we came back. I remembered that you have to work with every prophetic word; you don’t just let it pass by. So I came back around April and I decided I would breakthrough men. So I organised what I call a Tongue Challenge and I said who was interested to join me and we did that for a couple of hours and that ran for like a month. So, we sometimes had 400-700 people who would join and the very last night, I said why didn’t we gather somewhere in Lekki and pray and worship in spirit, and people came, it was massive. Just as I was celebrating, that we had finished, I just heard the Lord saying. “The whole of June 2017, based on Acts-16, 25 to 26, at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises to Lord, and there was an earthquake and this came as a very strong word and then I announced Halleluya night from Tongue Challenge.

The first night, I was alone in my house, I was dressed casually in white singlet and the light was off and I began to praise and worship God and people started joining me. I had like 2,000 people joining me and the next day would be 7,000 and then 13,000, 15,000.

Then I had a few friends who asked me if they could come over to join me and bring some instruments like keyboards and so on, and that was how it exploded. The rest is history.

I listened to a message you released at a point about the difficulties you went through like you wanted to travel and you couldn’t get a visa, but here you are today. What message could you give to those who are waiting for God to give them big break?

I always use the analogy of a Cedar tree. A cedar tree is a very interesting tree. If you plant a mango tree beside a cedar, free, in a few weeks or months, you will see the signs of growth and in about a year you should be able to harvest. But it would take a cedar tree time to go down and find its roots.

That is my simple analogy. And when people see mango tree, it would be good for example because it would quickly bring fruits, while the cedar tree takes longer time to even let its roots go down and people would be asking the cedar tree “what is going on”?

But the reality is, the lifespan of a mango tree is just very short, but that’s not the case of cedar tree. Some researchers have discovered that some of the cedar trees that existed during the time of Jesus Christ time still exist.

When a cedar tree begins to grow, it grows non-stop, and it uses are numerous. But I thank God because I was able to accept those process. There were times I thought I was ready and my pastor would say, “yes you are gifted, you are anointed but there is no character yet. I came in a season where I enjoyed the process.

There was a time the church said it’s time to travel and I didn’t want to travel again because I was already enjoying the presence of God. I would just stay at home worshipping and weeping. My sister didn’t understand what happened. All these time, I didn’t know what was happening, except a particular day, I was at home playing the piano and I was just weeping before the Lord and I felt something like a blanket, resting on my head at No 12, Obiwunmi Street, Off Fola Agoro, Somolu, Lagos. It rested on my head and I know it was holy. I jumped out of the room and ran away. Later that evening, I was driving to the church and between CMS and Bonny Camp (I was driving in my KIA car) and my 3310 Nokia phone rang and then I picked it up, a man of God from the other side, who had never called before said to me Nathaniel: The Hand of God is upon you from today, conduct yourself accordingly. From then on I began to chase the Lord.

I just kept serving in the church. I would work with the children and I would put together a team. I began to do things outside my job description just to be busy. I would call my friend to pray night after night. So, we just had this fire burning.

And then Pastor Eskos left and I had to move to another parish where I was a music director and then the Pastor-in-Charge called me that I want you to lead the youth church, and just like that the song was born out of prayers like “Onise Iyanu”. When I prayed in the spirit I would hear Onise Iyanu and I would ask what does that means and I turned to an usher to tell me the meaning of Onise Iyanu because I don’t speak Yoruba. Olowogbogboro was during the Halleluya Challenge. Immediately, I look into a guy, I heard something like Olowogbogboro in the spirit. I could not pronounce it and I said it like that and people started typing Olowogbogboro and that was how the phrase just went viral.

How I overcome – The Eddy Koomson story

2243798750720380763_237367298low

Born and raised in a musical family, Eddy picked his musical senses from his dad who played the organ and led the choir in a Methodist church where he grew up. At the age of four (4), he became the first-ever drummer in the church.

Moving on to high school, Eddy became music director for the School band just in the second year ahead of his seniors. Doubling as Music Director for the Spiritual Union (SU), Editor-In-Chief for the School Magazine team, and Drama Coordinator for the WDDC. It’s safe to say arts lived in him from birth.

He switched between instruments and picked up as a bass player in 2014 under the supervision of his well-known and renowned mentor, Opoku Sanaa now in Dubai.

His love for music is a thrilling one. Music has always been the live wire of his glittering prospects. To him music and art, in general, is but a life, a spiritual facet of his being.

It’s not a surprise that his story as a young lad creates melodies. The detail, therefore, completing the package with lyrics of testimonies to share and stories to tell. He has been instrumental in the music industry as a bass guitarist and music director & worked with great artists such as E.L, Simi (Nigeria), Trigmatic, Timi Dakolo (Nigeria), King Promise, Adina, KingzKid and currently for MOGmusic.

He also has a gift for us in the package of an EP in July. Comprising of 5 hymns, well arranged and features some of the greatest gospel artistes in the country. Fingers crossed as we await the surprises, he has in store for us.

Working with Eddy has always been amazing. Truly a trailblazer in his field. As a resourceful person, Eddy has created that aura of results, orientation and hard work. Here are a few words testifying to that.

“A hard-working and smart young professional. Always up to the task and creative in his approach to digital marketing and brand management.” – Opoku Sanaa, music enthusiast and entrepreneur said.

“Eddy has grown steadily in his career from my time working with him back in 2014. A brilliant young lad who’s always ready and willing to learn and try new things. He takes calculated risks and ensures all projects are completed on time.” – Stephen Boadi, CEO, Enable Growth Africa said.
