Anointed Ghanaian gospel singer Siisi Baidoo says gospel artistes do not gain enough support as expected. And this makes it difficult for them to push one another to enhance growth in the musical terrain.
Indicating the move needed to push the Ghanaian gospel music, the worshipper stated that they need to establish to help gospel artistes drive one another.
“For me, I think there has been a lot of pace-setting from those who have left. We need to form a united front and push ourselves.
“Support and unity are what really pushes people when it comes to ministering. We just really have to push ourselves”, he added.
Speaking with Johnnie Hughes on the Entertainment Segment of TV3 New Day, the ‘Onyame Tumfo’ hitmaker added that churches should also support gospel artistes.
He, however, advised gospel artistes not to act responsibly when they gain such support and opportunities.
“We should get a lot of support from ourselves and from the churches to push us. When given the opportunity to be pushed, we should be responsible enough and handle it properly.”
Speaking on his musical career, Siisi recounted that he loved music from his childhood. And realized it was his calling when people started having testimonies and encounters with God when he ministered in high school.
He revealed that his involvement in acapella groups, church choir and other music groups heightened his musical career and encouraged him to provide excellence in worship.
Siisi Baidoo, who runs a solo ministry, said it feels humbling when worshippers fall under the anointing of God anytime he ministered.
This, he explained, is because of the grace given him by God to be a blessing to others through his ministrations.
According to him, people receive countless testimonies by listening to his music.
Narrating an experience, he said, “I got a call from somebody from Akosombo on my ‘Onyame Tumfo’ song. The person told me his mother was ill and had a spinal problem and could not walk. He had been praying and decided that one day he was going to pray with the song by the mother. Instantly, the mother got healed”.
The gospel artiste is a marketing consultant and heads a non-denominational group named ‘Crafted Nation.’ ‘Crafted Nation’ is aimed at spreading the gospel through music ministration, outreaches and missions.
‘Crafted Nation’ is hosting a concert on Sunday, October 10, to create an atmosphere where people can have a personal encounter with God and know the essence of praising and worshipping him.
The praise party, held at the Pleasant Place at the Spintex Road in Accra at 4 pm, will be graced by gospel artists like Theophilus Sunday from Nigeria and others.
