“There is someone who loves to be around the nursing mothers or be a doctor. If you know you have that mix the two as you heal them, sing to them because there is therapy in music.

“You don’t necessarily need to have an album before you would be a musician. Let the music meet the need of the people around you, where you are. Some people got their contract on the field when they were just doing what they love doing best so you don’t have to force, rush and try to impress. Just let your gift be seen where it’s needed, that is the essence of it.” Diana Hopeson said on the CER Show on GN TV

Joe Mettle blasts government for not investing in the arts

Joe-Mettle

Ghanaian gospel maestro, Joe Mettle, has descended on the government for not paying attention to the creative arts industry.

Speaking in an interview with AJ Sarpong on Citi TV’s ‘Hall of Fame,’ he noted unlike other countries, the Ghanaian government takes from the creatives but does nothing for them in return.

He cited a recent attempt by the Ghana Revenue Authority on taxing the works of all creative artists.

“Countries that take taxes from the industry invest back into the industry. So if you are not investing in the industry and you are taking from the industry, you are killing it,” he noted.

“What investment would you say the government has made to the creative arts. Tell me. Give me one or two,” he added.

He also said that in South Africa there are halls that are built by the state where people who belong to their music association hold events in the halls on fairly good rates. He said in an industry like that, it is not painful to pay taxes.

He demonstrated the high fares event organisers pay to auditoriums for their shows and the high taxes they pay to the government while hosting such concerts.

This is not the first time government has been criticised for not helping the creative sector.

Most stakeholders of the arts have been on the neck of government for failing to fulfil its promise of building 9 large seating theatres, setting a creative arts fund, copyright court, among others.

he 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year is currently out with his new single titled ‘Me Hia Wo Yesu.’

Ohemaa Mercy

Award-winning gospel musician, Mercy Twum-Ampofo, popularly known as Ohemaa Mercy has urged Christians out there to desist from putting all their eggs in one basket because it is a move that can be very dangerous at the end.

She gave this important advice when she was sharing the sad story of how she almost died some years ago because of the ‘wickedness’ of one man of God. Speaking on Agyenkwa FM’s entertainment review show, Ohemaa Mercy told B Ice that a pastor they ministered at his church told her that he was going to use the money, which could save her life after she had some complication with her pregnancy, to purchase a television for his children.

The ‘Aseda’ hitmaker revealed that surprisingly enough throughout her nine-month pregnancy she was always on her feet at the church of this man of God ministering songs to the delight of everyone in the church but still he didn’t have pity on her.

In all of this, Ohemaa Mercy’s simple message is that Christians should not be too dependent on people because if pastors can fail, then anybody can fail them.

Mercy Twum-Ampofo currently promoting her latest and powerful album ‘My Set Time, her seventh studio album.

WATCH: If you don’t give Tithe you are an armed robber – Musician

pastor

Senior Pastor of Praying Family Chapel, Rev P.K Boadi in an interview with Foster Romanus on e.TV Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity Show has slammed Christians who don’t pay tithe.

Christians of different denominations have spoken on whether it is compulsory or not to pay tithe.

According to Rev P.K, it is mandatory for Christians to pay their tithes because it is “a commandment of the Lord”.

“I am shocked that a Christian will debate on paying tithes; it is something you have to do or bring; it is a command. You go to church, the pastor officiates your wedding, when you have an issue you call your pastor to help” he stated.

Someone told me in London that she/he prefers to give tithe to the needy. If you are in trouble will you call the needy to help you? I take tithe in my church. If you don’t give tithe, you are an armed robber. It is in the book of Malachi that you are stealing from God”, he added.

Rev P.K Boadi is also an International Gospel Musician and a songwriter.

My dad didn’t want me to do only music – Diana Hamilton

Diana-Hamilton-I-Believe-Artwork

Ghanaian UK  based Gospel musician Diana Antwi Hamilton has revealed that she is living the life her father prayed for her.

In an interview with Nii Noi on the Christian Entertainment Review Show on GN TV, Mrs. Hamilton said her late father wanted her to have a profession by doing other jobs in addition to her music ministry.

Reacting to claim that her father wanted her to only focus on her nursing career, the ‘Mo Ne Yo’ hitmaker, disclosed that her father did support both careers.

“My dad supported me 100%, my headmaster told me in JHS to do music as a course but my father said he doesn’t want me to do only music as a profession though it is a ministry on its own. He didn’t want me to get to the point whereby if I don’t sing, I do n’t eat or can’t take care of myself and my family, he wanted me to have another professional job and still do music”, Mrs. Hamilton said.

According to her, she is doing music as her ministry because it is her calling and it brings fulfillment.

“My dad said when it gets to a point where music is taking over and I can’t do nursing, then I can give my music career the utmost priority,” she said.

She also explained that most of her songs were her experiences in life, recounting on how for almost six years of marriage she had not put to birth but her husband’s family never had issues with her childbearing problem.

“My family and my husband’s family never had problems with me for not giving birth for almost 6 years. All songs I have released have a story connected to my life history.” She disclosed.

She advised women who are still barren to still trust in God, give reverence to their husbands, and at the right time, God will answer their prayers.

Diana Antwi Hamilton has released a lot of singles including, Osoro Bekasa, Ensi wo yie, Yehowa be hwe wo, mo ne yo and many more.

Some rising gospel artistes are better than most mainstream gospel acts – Rose Adjei

IMG-20190131-WA0063

Gospel musician Rose Adjei has said most up-and-coming gospel musicians are better than established gospel artistes musically.

In an interview with Nii Noi on the Christian Entertainment Review Show on GN TV, the gospel songstress indicated that some budding gospel artistes though do not get the needed recognition as the mainstream gospel artistes, their music craft is worth investing in.

According to her, most promising gospel artistes work their way to the top without the help of any well-established artistes.

“Most people will never come around you when you’re struggling but will wait when things get better. Some of the up and coming artistes are even better than some of the A-list gospel artistes. Everybody wants to associate themselves with great people but nobody wants to help you to rise to the top and that is why I, Rose Adjei will never give up.”
