In an era where music sales fetch lesser income for Ghanaian musicians, one of their major sources of subsistence has been putting up musical concerts.
On 28th May, 2017, one of Ghana’s ebullient gospel musicians, SP Kofi Sarpong, will be ministering to gospel music fans at National Theatre.
The concert dubbed ‘SP Kofi Sarpong Live In Concert,’ is put together by his record label and management outfit, Media Excel Productions.
Speaking to citifmonline.com, Kwesi Ennin Ernest, the Chief Executive Officer of Media Excel said that they realised they could strengthen their artiste’s brand by creating for him, his own concert.
“This is the first time Kofi is putting up his own concert and we believe it is long overdue. Kofi is one of the big gospel artistes in this country who definitely deserves a concert of his own. This will help make his brand stronger,” Mr. Ennin said.
The self – acclaimed King of African Borborbor will be performing alongside gospel giants like Ohemaa Mercy, Abena Ruthy, Francis Amo and Nacee. Others include Joyce Blessing, Gifty Osei, Koda and a surprise gospel artiste from the United Kingdom.
SP Kofi Sarpong released his first album ‘Sacrifice’ in 2012 and this brought him into the limelight. He also has songs like ‘African Borborbor,’ ‘Adom Bi,’ ‘Abotre,’ ‘Agyenkwa’ and ‘Aseda.’
He has won several awards in the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Ghana Music Awards UK and other internationally recognised award schemes.
