Ghana: Cwesi Oteng & Co to Perform With Kirk Franklin

Cwesi Oteng gave us the gospel revolution in Ghana that Kirk Franklin asked for America. After the bland and banal music videos, the lyrical cliques, you could see palpable hunger for something different, something x-factor, something Cwesi Oteng.

And it was as if awards were hoarded in wait for his debut album and others – Contemporary Gospel Musician of the Year, Gospel Album of the Year.

Suddenly,like a leaking LPG cylinder, his songs and classy videos caught fire in Abuja, Nairobi in Kenya, Cape town and Pretoria in South Africa, Banjul in Gambia and Lilongwe in Malawi.

It goes to prove that a true artiste in one whose songs travel more than the number of visa stamps in his passport.

The guy has bagged the highest nominations -five- for the 2013 African Gospel Awards – Overall Artiste of the Year (Male), Song of the Year, Album of the Year, West African Artiste of the Year and Event of the Year.

So when he steps on stage with another award-winner like Kirk Franklin, it is just a way of saying ‘here is my type, give it to him’
