Yaw Sarpong x Sarkodie collaboration, What Gospel Musicians should learn – Kwaku Bee Abrante Writes 

Gospel musicians collaborating with secular artists in Ghana is nothing new especially in this 21st century, Ghana has seen Herty Borngreat, a gospel singer featured Sarkodie on her “Take Them to Church” album in 2013 which was produced by Kaywa. Daddy Lumba, a high life artiste and Great Ampong  a gospel artiste formed a group called Kojo Kojo to release hit single, “Hossana” in 2015.

Opanka featured Gifty Osei, a gospel artiste on a song entitled Abuburo Nkosua and

Nacee, a known gospel vocalist also invited Guru on his new jam dubbed Boys Boys which was a hit in Ghana.

However, most of these collaborations have attracted negative criticisms and sometimes insults mostly  on the gospel arts at the expense of the numerous advantages that come with it.

Most Ghanaians interpret  this to be unholy on the path of the Gospel artists quoting 2 Corinthians 6:14 to buttress their point at the expense of the numerous advantages that comes with it, thereby limiting other gospel artists from doing same.

Yaw Sarpong & Asomafo combining  forces with Sarkodie on a song titled Ahobrase3, I think would open the flood gate for lots of other gospel musicians to  collaborate with other secular arts weather good or bad but before we condemn or applaud them here are some lessons I think we should learn from the collaboration and limit the condemnation as we have  always done to other gospel artists in the past.

Yaw Sarpong and Asomafo collaborating with Sarkodie should be seen as joining forces where Sarknation would get to know Yaw Sarpong’s songs and vice versa. This is very necessary for spreading the word of God.

Again, this collaboration would expose Yaw Sarpong  to this new generation more than ever. In as much as I agree that Yaw Sarpong is popular , we should also note  that, due to social media and other factors, Sakodie has the most youth appeal than Yaw Sarpong and if not all, most of the gospel musicians in Ghana, it is therefore very prudent for lot of gospel artists to join forces with other secular artists to be able to win some of their followers.

Furthermore, it should be noted that we already have most of our secular artists creating  great gospel lyrics like Kwabena Kwabena ft Steve Bedi – Bue Kwan which was adjudged by industry critics as one of the best Gospel songs ever produced in Ghana, Manifest Ft Obrafuor- No shortcut to heaven, Mighty Jesus’, released by Edem and featured Jay So and EL, etc. It should therefore not be seen as disastrous if Gospel Musicians join forces with  secular artists on a song, if it is,Gospel musician, Yaw Sarpong, wouldn’t have said  he believes rapper Sarkodie is the vessel God is using to widen his influence in the music industry. It is obvious Yaw Sarpong knows the milage Sarkodie will give him.

To end with, I think it should be prudent if the categorisation of a song is based on the content and not the personalities or  the beat. And so in the same way as we  have a  gospel reggae and highlife gospel song, we can also have a hiplife gospel song etc and spread the word of God quickly.

Assume  gospel lyrics in a hiplife songs are  being played in the night clubs speaking  against immoral arts, at least the gospel fraternity can also win souls from the night club for God, for Mark 2: 7 says

Enforcing Vaccine On Citizens, Unconstitutional ‐ Sammy Gyamfi

Published

on

The national communications officer of the biggest opposition party, the NDC, Sammuel Gyamfi has given a penny of his thought concerning the compulsory vaccination going on in the country. The government’s policy of getting every Ghanaian at the age of eighteen years and above vaccinated does not sit well with the young lawyer.

According to Sammy Gyamfi, research made has proven that the vaccinated is highly susceptible to contracting the virus than the unvaccinated ones. He goes on to argue that there are countries who record number of COVID cases twice as Ghana such as south Africa but their president, Cyril Ramaphosa, posits that there is not going to be a force vaccination in the country.

“Some countries such as South Africa and Brazil are rejecting the Vaccine, vehemently though they are recording cases in huge numbers”, says Sammy Gyamfi.

According to the NDC firebrand, no law in Ghana mandates the FDA to do emergency use authorization, the medicine must be tested and approved before being administered. So it illegal to do emergency use authorization and this proceeds to border the natural rights of Ghanaian citizens enshrined in the 1992 constitution if citizens receive the dose forcefully.

Sammy Gyamfi registered his displeasure when granting an interview at Media General’s 3fm.
