Ghana’s gospel music scene has evolved over the years from the traditional 4-4 beat patterns and single bass guitar lines to more complicated and contemporary beat patterns and bass guitar lines.
But anyone who was born in the 70’s and 80’s will still miss the former kinds of gospel music; the kind that Ghanaians beat makers used to produced, no matter how much they are into the modern trend.
One would also argue that gospel songs produced in the past carried more spiritual weight than what most gospel musicians produce today. And it is particularly because they main focus on almost everything done today is “Money Money Money”.
Well, depunch.com brings to you a list of 3 inspirational female gospel musicians. They graced our radios and TV’s in the 2000’s but have been practically silent.
