Gospel music is a genre of music. It varies depending on the culture and social setting in which it is created, performed, and even defined. God, the creator of the universe is praised and worshipped through the creation and performance of gospel music. There are many people in the entertainment industry who are into gospel music. In Ghana, some popularly known musicians are the likes of Diana Hamilton, Piesie Esther, and Abena Serwaa Ophelia among others.
Formerly known as Ophelia Nyantakyi, Abena Serwaa Ophelia is a veteran gospel musician and fashion designer. She is well-known for her song “Daadaadaa” and other songs. The seasoned gospel artist has hosted an annual concert dubbed Nnaase Afore for the past two years, and it has been a success both times.
On Sunday, January 29, 2023, at 4 p.m., the third edition of ‘Nnaase Afore’ which is translated to mean ‘Sacrifice of Thanksgiving’, was held at the PIWC-ATTC Dome in Kokomlemle. Indeed, this year’s edition of the annual concert was a great success seeing as many gospel musicians and patrons trooped in to support their sister, mother, and friend, Abena Serwaa Ophelia. The event started with the red carpet where there was an interview with the woman of the night, several gospel musicians, and other patrons who participated. One thing that cut across in the interviews was how all who were interviewed expressed their gratitude to God for how far He has brought them, and for an event such as the night’s.
The concert progressed with performances from several musicians in the likes of Stella Seal, Tagoe Sisters, Cindy Thompson, Piesie Esther, Francis Amo, and Lady Chatty among other musicians. It was such an amazing time, and all who attended left with smiles of accomplishment. Make it a date to attend next year’s Nnaase Afore, and your life will never be the same.
