In this era, it is quite common to see various musicians who do different genres join force to make good music and tickle our eardrums. It is, however, in very rare situations that there are music collaborations between a gospel artiste and an artist who makes secular music.
According to the sensational Ghanaian gospel artiste, Obaapa Gyamfua who emerged as the winner for the ‘Gospel Artiste of the year’ slot for the maiden edition of the Darling Eastern Music Awards she will soon release a song with the ‘Bhim nation’ President stonebwoy.
In an interview with Ghcelebrities.com Obaapa Gyamfua revealed recording with a secular musician is part of the bigger music trade, and should not be criticized.
She added, “Collaborating with others doesn’t make us do one thing everyday but it brings a difference. I will keep doing the collaboration with the secular musicians to bring a change in the music industry, someone with a good heart like stonebwoy can bring the change we need, and I will soon release a song with him soon”.
It has become quite ordinary for Gospel artistes to feature secular artistes on their songs and vice versa. Some of the successful collaborations are Herty Borngreat with Trigmatic and Sarkodie,Gifty Osei with Opanka and most recently Nacee with Guru, and the next to join is Obaapa Gyemfua.
After picking his nomination forms last week for the contest, Koku again said he would help to unseat what he called “the incompetent New Patriotic Party (NPP) under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo, who has failed woefully in fulfilling his campaign promises in 2020.
Using innuendos, Koku said he is not ‘scared’ of any candidate vying for the General Secretary position.
He said “the race is not about insults, it’s not boxing; we are not in the race to insult anybody. I have decided to contest as General Secretary with the message of party first. The party is supreme and we must work for the party at all levels in order to rebuild it and bring it back to power in 2020.”
Mr. Asiedu Nketia, who appears to have enough of Koku’s tantrums, reacted by ‘exposing’ his subordinate for peddling ‘falsehood’ about him.
He said, “I saw a headline on one of the portals that I have pleaded with Koku Anyidoho to step down for me to go unopposed. I called that radio station, Rainbow Radio, and asked them where they got that story and also expressed my reservations about it since the headline and body of the story did not match. They gave me the opportunity to give my side of the story.”
“I explained to them that it was rather Koku Anyidoho who asked some prominent people in the NDC to come to my house to apologise to me for indicating that I have blessed him for the General Secretary position because that was not true. Koku Anyidoho rather came to apologise to me not the other way round.
“He sent Dr Carl Max, Hon. Kofi Attoh, Vida Addei, who is the Deputy National Treasurer, to apologise to me. He also asked Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan to join them but Yaw couldn’t come, and so it was Koku who apologised to me for that falsehood.
“These are confidential matters that I would have kept to myself, but due to the controversies that are emerging, I am forced to come out and set the records straight.”
