Photos: Francis Adjei and Joe Mettle bring to “LIFE” Adom Praiz!
“Hyper-youths bounced into the auditorium like protons. But as the worship went on, the songs battered their souls like a castle under siege until their spirits poured out and tears flowed out like a leaky roof”, MyJoyonline reported.
The just ended Adom Praiz concert saw over ten thousand Christians who came together to enjoy some good music and foster their faith.
MyJoyonline further reported:
Beyond the entertainment, there was a discernible mass of Ghanaians in there who came to connect with God the same way people looked for mobile phone chargers after 72 hours in darkness.Click to enjoy more gospel music
And this need was irrespective of social status or the quality of a person’s make-up. When God is magnified, the tear duct is hapless.
And that is what the performances from Francis Adjei, Joe Mettle, Steve Crown and Preye managed to accomplish with little effort.
Really? Little effort?? 😏
We must spend some time to talk about Francis Adjei‘s improbable return and a shocking confirmation of his grip on gospel music. But for now, let’s dwell on the strata of patrons at the 8th edition of Adom Praiz.
For some of them, the last time they came to Adom Praiz was in 2016. They watched from the womb.Click to listen Woye Owura by Noble Nketsiah
“And these babies and toddlers prove that those who complain of the disruptive effect of a neighbour’s noise at their bedtime are simply not sleepy enough.”
No amount of noise, no matter the size of the combo or the trembling upper terrace could wake them up. They were just off. – reported by Myjoyonline.
For these kids slept like they had been shot. A Joe Mettle– shot or a Francis Adjei-shot, we would have to wait till they can speak.
Before E.L sang ‘Koko for my God’ and collected awards, Francis Agyei sang ‘I have a God who never fails’ several years ago and got only fans. The two songs are the same, only separated in taste by genre.
A Francis Adjei nostalgia swept through Adom Praiz. We wrestled from him his song ‘ God is so good’, leaving him to conduct the song while heartful of voices boomed the lyrics like a karaoke night.
Before Francis Adjei, every Ghanaian artiste sang a Nigerian song. After Francis Agyei, even a Nigerian artiste now sang Ghana gospel.
National darling Joe Mettle who is becoming an Adom Praiz constant received a thundering welcome back to the stage after his VGMA exploits. The mantle has indeed fallen on The Mettle.
Genetically incapable of flamboyant outlook, banished to a life of simple outfits, Joe Mettle picked the microphone up from Francis Adjei and people picked their handkerchief again to cry.
The crowd literally stalked Joe Mettle expecting his hit song “Bo nɔɔ ni eee” and it came before he did a Joe Bechman song to finish his worship. For his best praises, he sang ‘turning around for my good’. But Joe couldn’t even turn well on stage betraying weak dancing legs despite a strong singing voice.
You can’t have it all can you?
Steve Crown with that boyish look shone in his Agbada. Steve became great after singing that God is great. It is as if God was impressed by the song ‘You are great’ he allowed a bit of himself to rub off the Nigerian gospel star.
The song was over-performed on the night. We even used to dismiss poverty even AIDS. The young man must be delighted that the younger generation here connects to him at such a growing stage of his music career. If he keeps a cool head amidst the potentially intoxicating adoration of fans, his career will be on cruise control.
After more than 270minutes of praise and worship, the concluding performance fell to the CEO of Script Music Preye Odeye and the performance went to script.
