Veteran Ghanaian music producer and entertainment pundit of the Year winner at the 2021 RTP Awards, Fred Kyei Mensah better known as Fredima has named UK-based Ghanaian sensational afro gospel musician Joseph Matthew as the new king of afro gospel music in Ghana.
Joseph Matthew, who is known for songs such as ‘Hallelujah , ‘Nyame Ye’, which literally means ‘God Is Good in the Akan dialect, ‘Not Alone’ and ‘My Story’ has changed the spectrum of the Ghanaian Gospel music scene with his style of singing; a distinctive contemporary sound— a mixture of Ghanaian highlife, contemporary Afro beats and Rap.
Matthew is currently out with another smashing hit song titled ’The Name’ which is currently enjoying massive airplay on TV and radio.
Ever since he surfaced onto the Ghanaian gospel music scene in 2019, he has been endorsed by most entertainment Pundits and showbiz personalities like Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, Bulldog, Kwamena Idan, Kwaku Asiedu and Nana Romeo as the next artist to rule the gospel music scene.
While expressing his views as a pundit after listening to “The Name’ and ‘Nyame Ye’ hit songs on Showbiz Xtra’ – hosted by Doctar Cann on Happy FM, Fredima also endorsed the ‘Not Alone’ singer by agreeing to Doctar Cann’s assertion that Matthew is the new King of afro gospel music in Ghana:
“JM is a great artist… Yes, he is the new king of afro gospel…he is good…he will soon take over the gospel music scene…I heard you play his previous songs which are very good…he should come to Ghana one of these days to grant interviews in order for him to be popular”.Fredima said
