University of Ghana graduate, Emmanuel Debrah might not have had music on his mind as a medium he could use to impact lives but as the soft spoken gentleman confessed to www.blakkpepper.com, “I knew I could pray or evangelise but music, it just happened.”
Debrah will be offering his first single ‘Aseda’ to the public on July 2, 2017, through online platforms including this platform. A concert will however be staged on September 8, 2017 at the Calvary Crusaders Ministry in Agona Swedru.
According to Debrah, he joined his church choir after not particularly being active in church so he could do something for God by singing and four years on, his music life is taking shape.
“In 2014, I organised a concert for the children in Swedru. It was the first of its kind but about 500 people showed up and I have not looked back since then,” the man who read Political Science and Sociology submitted.
On how ‘Aseda’ (thanksgiving in Twi) came about, Emmanuel Debrah noted while going for a walk sometime back, the lyrics stated forming but it was only recently the lyrics came more forcefully that he came to the realisation, he had to record a song to express his gratitude to God.
“I am grateful to God immensely. Taking me from grass to grace. Many nay sayers reckoned I would amount to nothing by I am here and advancing.”
Debrah adds: “I have come to realise many Christians are ungrateful. We only praise God when things are right but the bible admonishes us to always give thanks. Thanksgiving ought to be a lifestyle and not an event,” stressing “Psalm 103: 1-5 should inspire many to praise the lord.”
‘Aseda’ was recorded at the Groove House Studio and mixed, mastered at Jem Studio.
The Gospel Ambassadors Church member in Agona Swedru explained for some time now, he gets invites to minister songs at churches and at other Christian events although he doesn’t charge, church administrators do show love through packages noting that self-financing ‘Aseda’ was tough but glad it was done.
Debrah is open for partnership from well-intentioned and wealthy persons who would love to pump money into his music mentioning that he could be reached via:

The former African University College of Communications (AUCC) graduate who studied Journalism and Mass Communication hopes to read International Relations and Law in the coming years as well start his own consultancy business.
The bachelor residing at Egwabriso Estate in Swedru stated he draws his musical inspiration from the now deceased Danny Nettey, Joe Bechem, Nathaniel Bassey and William McDowell.
He remains grateful to Evangelist Nobleman Dodd, Mr. Kofi Twum Mensah Adepah, Pastor Ato Acquah of Joy FM, Rev. Frank Agyekum and Rev. Benny Yamoah Ghansah of Gospel Ambassadors Church.
