Apostle Hillary Okai, founder and leader of the Prayer Commission Family has always loved music and is now putting in work to get the music to the people to lift them when down and as well as cushion them in good times.
Okai informed Blakkpepper, his music ministry started two years ago when inspired by the Holy Ghost. He noted that under the force of God, he’s penned down over 70 individual songs to be used as materials for his albums while acknowledging the instrumental role of Ed Winner Nartey.
With production works happening at the Makarious Music Studio at Awoshie in Accra, Apostle Okai is excited about his debut album which will be released soon. In the meantime however, he has released ‘Wokum No’ (He was crucified) this month to give fans something to chew on while the main album gets served.
According to husband and father of one, he draws great inspiration from the Hillsong Worship-an Australian Christian music praise & worship group from Sydney, Australia, whose music have charted on the Billboard magazine charts in the US in addition to being a church.
Okai submitted “their ability to compose poetic yet spiritual songs is impressive,” adding he is also a big fan of Sonnie Badu, Eugene Zuta and Akesse Brempong.
The Physical Education and Creative Arts teacher at the Ford School Limited at Teshie disclosed he opted to do gospel music because “Jesus is the solution to whatever people will get afflicted with on earth.”
The grand vision Hillary Okai has for his music and ministry is to build the Prayer Commission Family like the Hillsong Church. “A church made up of strong church members who teach young folks how to play musical instruments to create wonderful, beautiful and impactful music,” he stressed.
He aims also to write and have songs published in different languages so a wider audience can understand and enjoy. For now, Okai has materials in local languages Twi, Ewe and Ga.
While ‘Wokum No’ features Eugene Zuta, Okai’s album will also feature Akesse Brempong. He is hopeful the album will fall on warm hearts and minds.
Apostle Hillary Okai can be interacted with on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Audiomark, SoundCloud, and Aftown using his name.
