Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Ahead of the 2015 Ayeyi Kese which will be held at the Top Auditorium

in Sunyani on the 31st of May, Minister Francis Amo in an exclusive

interview with the News Hunter Daily Magazine disclosed that he

doesn’t personally compete for awards.

The Ghanaian Song Writer, Composer, Performer and Worship Leader said,

“I don’t see hiplife or other musicians selling songs as compare to

Gospel Musicians, we promotions, launching and other things, but for

me personally, I don’t fight for awards, God’s reward is greater than

something which is awarded by human being.”

Francis Amo Ayuobi who hails from Ogua, Cape Coast said he has been

into the ministering industry for 15 years now.

“I have been singing for 15 years non-stop, my church Pastor gave me

the opportunity to sing at church when our praises leader wasn’t

around, I was a drummer but on that faithful day, I sung and played

the drums at the same time of which i delivered.”

“I have backed a lot of musicians; No Tribe, Andy Frimpong Manso,

Cindy Thompson, Ohemaa Mercy, Grace Ashley, Gifty Osei, DSP Kofi

Sarpong, and also collaborated with Sonnie Badu, Next Generation

Ministries, etc.”

According to him, He has faced a lot of challenges in the 15 years

journey but always he doesn’t complain but rather make sure to serve

God always.

On How He Sees the Gospel Industry in Ghana

“It’s very nice but before that let me appreciate my Mummies,

Daughters of Glorious Jesus who i worked for some years, they mentored

me and i thank them for their advice. I can see the Gospel Music in

Ghana is progressing and that tells you we are moving forward.”

Currently Minister Francis Amo is working on his second album ‘Ngooba’.

Why do Gospel Musicians Charge for performing at programs; Ain’t you

doing the work of God?

“All this things started because of experience, you can go anywhere to

sing but for lack of experience you won’t earn anything. What made me

started to charge was that, I went to do a one week program for a

pastor, of which I spent five days at a hotel and later on, I have to

pay it myself. can you imagine that? That’s not fair because he made

money from the work that i did. This is the work that we have been

called to do and we have to benefit from it. Even the bible says every

hard worker needs to enjoy from the fruit of his work. We also have

families to take care of by the end of the day.”
