ACTRESS Bridget Serwaa Kwakye, one of the Seventh-day Adventists in the movie industry seeks to combine movie acting with gospel music as she prepares to launch her maiden album soon in Kumasi.
The album titled “ASEDA”, to wit, “THANKSGIVING,” encapsulates her total life of gratitude to the Lord.
She, in the company of her singing group, Seraphims and Spiritual Singers, paid a courtesy call on the Offinsohene, Nana Wiafe Akenteng III at his palace at Offinso in the Ashanti Region last Sunday to officially invite him to chair the album launch. The group also seized the opportunity to sing a number of gospel songs to the thrill of Offinsohene.
Movie acting career still on course
The actress said she had not given up on her film acting career but to add up gospel music which was a parcel of her. She said movie production and music production were closely related and that adding music up was a step further and a feather in her cap.
She said the courtesy call apart from inviting the chief, was to introduce her new group led by Mr. Bright Appiah Nkansah to him and solicit his support in the buildup to the album launch.
Offinsohene: Gospel music could help my reign in heaven
Nana Akenteng III, as the Chief Patron of the Methodist Men’s Guild, observed that most people who professed to be Christians had thrown the practice of Christianity to the dogs. He said if nothing at all, messages and moral lessons contained in gospel music should change negative attitudes of the people for their positive development.
He, however, with inspiration from the Bible, used his reign as an example, wishing that gospel music should cause a paradigm shift in his royal life so he could continue to enjoy his reign in heaven. “God is King of Kings but should chiefs and kings confessed their sins and upheld God; we shall continue our kinship in heaven. I wish to take my reign to heaven, and I pray that gospel music plays a major role”, he stated.
He called on leaders of the country, especially the sitting President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the former Presidents, Ft. Lt. J. J. Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama to uphold God in all their endeavors to push Ghana closely to the King of Kings.
