A communications team member of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) Mr Collins Asante was sighted in the studios of Accra-based Hot 93.9 FM, jamming to the newest hit song of United Kingdom-based Ghanaian Afro gospel musician Joseph Matthew aka JM, titled ‘My Story’.
He was, as captured in the video, soaked up in the song, tapping his feet and waving his hands to the rhythm of the song. Clad in beautiful African apparel, Mr Collins seemed to have been enjoying it so much that he closed his eyes, just so his spirit could take up as much of the melody as he could take.
The UK-based Ghanaian gospel artist, JM has, since his appearance in the gospel music industry has carved a niche for himself with his stellar voice, artistic, African-themed songs videos and versatility.
He reveals in his “My Story” single that he was never born holy, but was born into sin and did not deserve the glory of God.
He is however awed by how far God has brought him. He said that if people knew where he had come from, then they would understand the story. “Don’t know nobody who deserves all the glory.
For all the things you’ve done for me, I give you the praise”, he said in gratitude to God. The song was Produced live by multiple award-winning drummer, Francis Osei.
The video is dominantly dark themed, with two beautiful sceneries that are meant to coordinate the story appropriately. As a lover of the African vibe, he collaborates the contemporary melody with the “Zanku”, “Gbeze” and other popular afro beat dances.
JM, together with video vixens are dressed in stellar African wears. He is also seen holding a “Dondo” instrument.Even though he is UK- based,JM has proved to Ghanaians and the world that the African culture is worth portraying, even amidst contemporary melodies.
After perforating the industry with his first hit song, ‘Hallelujah”, JM released ‘Nyame Ye’ which also stirred the waves with its outstanding packaging. True artistry, authentic and versatile rhythm and unprecedented talent—these are the words that could collocate with JM and his songs, for the few years that he has been in the industry.
JM has been endorsed by the masses, and it is not a wonder that he has punched into the political sector with his song.
