Former hiplife artiste Quophi Okyeame, who has ventured into full-time gospel ministry, is out with his first gospel song.
The former member of the defunct hiplife group, Akyeame says the song, ‘You Are God’, is for people who don’t believe in God and His Kingdom.
Dubbed the ‘New Age Gospel’, Quophi Okyeame explained to Myjoyonline.com that “I know a lot of people will be surprised at this statement because our society is probably not ready to accept certain truths about Kingdom duties that called people of God are to perform.”
“The core of the matter is, I am a man on a mission with a mandate of populating the Kingdom of God. There are certain truths that the religious Christian know too much and I feel like it’s a waste of time reaching to the already saved. My expectation is by now, fellow Christians are also busily propagating same agenda in different ways,” the former hiplife artiste noted.
‘You Are God’, he further reiterated, is “a testimony song” which “employs other than conventional ways to engage the non-believer and inform them about what they are missing being absent from Eden, the original place intended for man by God.”
Born Daniel Quophi Amoateng, Quophi Okyeame noted that, “The street is my church and believe [me], I have a lot of work to do. I am not waiting for my target to come to me but I see it as the main mandate given to priests according to Mathew 28:19".
Asked what the ‘New Age Gospel’ was about, he explained that, “The whole idea of New Age Gospel the genre I'm operating under, is to entice the streets with what they already love in the light of the truth of God (Good News). I believe music is such a powerful tool that will even reach places I will never see before I leave this world.”
