He has been on a low key since last year but come tomorrow, gospel artiste, Nicholas Omane Acheampong, will be the main attraction at the Prophet Albert Asihene Agyakwa Ministry at Akyem Tafo, Eastern region.
Dubbed, “Turning Balance”, the all-night service is expected to draw performances from other gospel artistes from the region. The Zaphenath Paneah hit maker said tomorrow’s show will be a re-union since he hails from Akyem Tafo.
“It will be a great night tomorrow. It’s just the right moment for my own people to have a feel of me too. I guess is a home coming ceremony for me too,” he told Showbiz in an interview on Monday.
He continued, “It won’t be just any performance my fans in Accra know of. My people will get the opportunity to watch me perform live with the big bible I use in my video clips, a nice ancient costume which I wear on special occasions and other things just for the body of Christ,”
In 2012, Omane Acheampong made a great comeback on the music scene when he released Zaphenath Paneah after a long break. He later followed it up with Mahashala Hashbath which made impact aswell but his latest album, Akuya 57, seems not to make the impact his previous albums did.
Last year, Nicholas came under criticism from sympathisers of the government when he was accused of courting public displeasure for the government on Akuya 57 which sounded political.
When he was asked if that could have contributed to Akuya 57 not gaining popularity as his previous albums like Zaphenath Paneah and Mahashala Hashbash, he said it was because the term hadn’t caught up well with the public. He said that he is currently working on a new album.
