Highly acclaimed Nigerian gospel artiste, Nathaniel Bassey is challenging Ghanaian gospel artistes not to limit their reach and global impact by singing in the local dialects.
In a passionate appeal at the Jesus Christ Encounter event held at the Accra Sports Stadium yesterday, Nathaniel Bassey mentioned that Ghanaian gospel artistes were much anointed but not getting global attention because they mostly sang in Twi.
In the Next 4 To 5 years, Psalmist from Ghana will come to Nigeria and host their own concert, that your songs will rise from Ghana to the nations of the earth.
“As a way of instruction, can I plead with Ghanaian music ministers to write songs in English? Yes I know you love your local dialect, Twi etc but there is an anointing on you and the world needs to hear your songs,” Nathaniel Bassey stated.
Nathaniel Bassey’s appeal might perhaps bring to the limelight some challenges of Ghanaian gospel artistes among which include the low patronage of English songs compose by gospel artistes.
