Why ‘Wogbe Jeke’ Is A Gospel Song – Amandzeba

Veteran singer Amandzeba has explained why his evergreen song Wogbe Jeke can be considered a gospel song.

During an interview with Berla Mundi, he highlighted how certain elements of the song delve into the creation narrative and recognize God as the source of our existence.

Amandzeba contended that since gospel music revolves around conveying the ‘truth’, his composition can rightfully be classified as gospel.

“It’s a gospel song. Just where the portion that you heard says, ‘K3j3 jenjensa Nyonm) b) w),’ ‘from the beginning, God created us.’ So, if I sing as long as God created us, is it not a gospel? Is it not the truth? I’m saying the gospel is supposed to be about the truth,” he said.

The Highlife singer also discussed matters of spirituality, which appear to be diminishing in importance due to the influence of Christianity and modernization.

He expressed his belief that white people have effectively manipulated our thinking, leading us to perceive our culture, which encompasses spirituality, as something negative and associated with darkness.

Nevertheless, he emphasized that it was from darkness that God’s creative command brought forth light, highlighting the strength and potential embedded within our country’s traditions and beliefs.

“If Okomfo Anokye was a white man, he would have been in the Bible by now. Yeah. What did he do? He conjured the stool from the heavens. Why didn’t he go to, let’s say, some shrine in the corner and pull the stool out? He conjured it from heaven. It tells you how powerful we have been,” he added.

The experienced vocalist also discussed matters of spirituality, which appears to be diminishing in importance due to the influence of Christianity and modernization.

He expressed his belief that white individuals have effectively manipulated our thinking, leading us to perceive our culture, which encompasses spirituality, as something negative and associated with darkness.

Nevertheless, he emphasized that it was from darkness that God’s creative command brought forth light, highlighting the strength and potential embedded within our country’s traditions and beliefs.

“Our culture, our tradition, have all of these aspects of spirituality in them. But you see, you leave yours because this is the black pot. Oh, it’s evil.

They say anything black is evil, meanwhile, before God created the earth, there was total darkness. So, out of that darkness came that creativity for him to say that command that let there be light,” he said.
