GHANAIAN GOSPEL Reggae artiste Nathaniel Nii Okai Abbey known in his ministry as Minister Nat Abbey has said that his mission and vision in the gospel scene is not the same as his colleagues.
According to Abbey, his presence in the music scene was not by his will but he was chosen by God “I didn’t choose myself, God chose me. It’s a calling. I have worked as an Accountant for 6years before God called me into this.”
In a Whatsapp interview with the artiste, he explained that he is though motivated by his fellow gospel artiste and not in competition with them because, “ I’m on a different track, I have a vision and my mission is different.”
He added that, my difference in this industry is my plans to make sure Gospel Reggae becomes part of the Ghana Music Award, he said “Before I started Gospel Reggae music it was not wildly accepted into the ‘Christiandom’. We hosted the first ever Gospel Reggae Night in Ghana’s music history on 20th September 2013 and over the years our songs are there to show.”
Abbey also revealed that, “Music is a calling not a business. It’s for the ministry. God has a better way of taking care of us. Money is very essential in life but not everything in life. ”
He has songs like ‘Thanks’, ‘Arise and shine’ ‘Me hia wo mmoa’ and his currently released single ‘Wo nkoa’ (Only You) ahead of his 3rd Album Launch and DVD recording on December 7, 2018 at ICGC Glorious Temple, Accra.
The artist who looks up to I look up to God but motivated by Isaiah Fosu-Kwakye, Papa San (Jamaican/American) and Joe Mettle’s ‘Wo Nkoa’ was released on Monday 26th November 2018 after his September tour in Nigeria this year.
This song is a testimony of the song writer he said “I lost my mum in June this year, which nearly cost me my relationship with God but in the midst of the pain and agony the Holy Spirit whispered in my ears and spoke to my heart that, He’s the closest friend I ever know. This was the beginning of the birthing of “Wo Nkoa” – Mins Nat Abbey.
He also added that it is his desire that everyone who have gone through pain, shame and neglect will find solace, inspiration and revival by this song. “Never feel late in life, because God has a time for everyone. When you celebrate the gift in people you can access the asset in them.
