Most gospel musicians around the world confess to getting their music/inspirations to their songs through prayers and in church, but to others, they receive it when driving or in the bathroom just as the case of musician MOGmusic(Man Of God).
According to the talented Ghanaian gospel musician and songwriter, known in real life as Nana Yaw Boakye, his source of music inspiration is not through prayers but rather when driving or doing other things.
MOGmusic made this disclosure during an interview with Mr. Bonez on Music Plus aired on Kessben TV.
“I think is just God blessing my diligence to his work, because basically, I worship and I go before him in prayer so I think that is what God watched and decided to bless me with this songs, I didn’t get it through prayer or worship but I got these songs when I was driving on the Moto way or sometimes when am bathing”
Known for songs like Elohim, Fakye, Awesome God, Hossana, MOG further opposed stories about musicians not writing their songs but getting it out of mere guessing but also failed to deny it.
“I will not agree to it totally, because when you listen to my better me album, 80% of the songs were written by myself and there are other artists interestingly there are other artists who are doing great music but are not known, unfortunately, these people do not get airplay.”
MOG said after releasing his second single ‘’BE LIFTED’’ in 2018, some music lovers thought he was a Nigerian or Black American, therefore, had to do a lot of work with bloggers to clear the doubts of people.
Known in real life as Nana Yaw Boakye, MOG, as he is called in showbiz, stated that despite musicians in Ghana giving their best to promote the country to the outside world, infrastructures which will help them accomplish their vision is hard to come by.
“the systems in Ghana is very porous, the music body is Ghana which is suppose to do their job is not helping and is making it very difficult for us, the second one is finance, before you deliver out something quality, you have to spend thousands of Ghana cedis, you shoot a video, you finish it and promoting also becomes another problem, so most of the time is finance.”
MOG has release “Fakye” a song originally written by pastor Joe Bechem and is yet to release an EP this year to his much-anticipated album which is slated to be released next year.
