Eben NtreAlthough much may not be known in Ghana about US-based gospel singer, Eben Ntre, he is currently in Ghana to launch his latest album as an introduction to the Ghanaian market.  The singer will launch his second album, ‘Higher Higher’ this Saturday at the Apostolic Church at Kaneshie adjacent the Cocoa Clinic, where he will thrill gospel fans with performances.

Eben Ntre has been in the music scene for a long time but for the past 10 years, he has been staying in the USA where he recorded and released the album earlier this year. Currently, he said, the album was getting attention from gospel music enthusiasts in the USA.  His musical career spans over 20 years. He released his first 10-track gospel album titled ‘Love of Jesus’ in Nigeria and Ghana in the year 1982.

Prior to that, he had played with major bands as Sappers Band, Golden Tulip Band with actress Rama Brew, and Anigye Band, among other top bands in Ghana and Nigeria. He started singing at a tender age in the church. After his technical training at the Kotobabi Technical institute, the man, whole hails from the Ashanti Region, decided to pursue a full time career in music, so he began playing with the above-mentioned bands.  Subsequently, he managed to travel to Nigeria in the late 70s to ply his trade there. While there, he played with top stars as Charley Boy, Mike Ocre and other popular Nigerian stars. He also prepared his first 10-track album there. He returned to Ghana in 1982 to promote it but it did not make the impact he wanted. Later, he formed the group Friends with the late John K. He was also part of the group that established Village Communications, producers of ‘Taxi Driver’ TV series and Fabrija band but he left for the USA just when things started getting better.

Working in USA all this while, he has prepared himself musically to meet the challenges of the US market. But he believes God is the better savior to give him his breakthrough. Songs on his upcoming album include ‘God’s Favour’, and ‘King of Kings’ and ‘Higher Higher’.

“I titled the album ‘Higher Higher’ because if you have been in the ministry for long, you will realize that we have been trying to lift the Lord’s name higher… so everywhere you are, you have to lift His name higher. That is the reason I came up with that title,” he said.

The track, ‘God’s Favour’, has a fusion of Afro-jazz rhythms and talks about God’s favour. “In everything we do, it takes God grace. I don’t think we can do anything without His grace,” he added. ‘King of Kings’ is also a fusion of Jazz-alive to encourage listeners to trust in the Lord and acknowledge him because He is the only one with great direction.

The tale of African heritage thrives on after a blissful night of lifetime performances and unforgettable memories during the 10th anniversary edition of the historic African Legends Night held last Friday December 2nd at the Grand Arena, Accra.

With the ever-eloquent Eunice Tornyi, Host of African Women’s Voices and the rib-cracker, Foster Romanus as the night’s hosts, this year’s event thrilled patrons with classic music with a mix of celebration and recognition of African music heritage.

Ghana’s adorable music band, the Patchbay Band who served as curtain raisers sparked the atmosphere in the auditorium with live renditions of back-to-back hits of Ghana’s Highlife songs and a magical blend of Afrobeats hit tracks.

Taking on centre stage, the multitalented saxophonist, ABLA SAX reminisced patrons with surreal performances with DJ Ganj of YFM on the turntables.

With an already electrified atmosphere, EFYA, Ghana’s music siren took the crowd to the next level. Barely halfway through the night, she presented an ecstasy and an escape space for patrons to overlook Ghana’s World Cup loss.

Just like fine wine, Legendary Highlife artiste, Rex Omar displayed a colossal performance, nothing seen in such a long time of live performances.

In between the blistering performances, eight lucky patrons among the crowd won themselves HD+ decoders after discovering the hidden treasures.

Patrons gave a boisterous roar as Dancehall great Samini mounted the stage. Samini who over the years has cemented his craft with peculiar live band performances, this time, initiated fans into ecstasy with back-to-back hit songs.

Abrantie Iron Boy Amakye Dede followed up close with a shutdown performance to round up the glorious night of bliss.

“African Legends Night has not only thrilled or presented fans with entertainment, but has been intentional in celebrating and recognizing the work of African music greats over the years, promoting our music heritage as well,” Ernest Boateng, CEO of Global Media Alliance stated.

“This year’s edition being our 10th year, has indeed been special. We just didn’t need to celebrate them but we also carved their names in the history books, inducting these music legends into the Music Legends Hall of Fame. The crowd was beyond excited. This is truly an unforgettable experience,” added Mr. Boateng.

The African Legends Night over the years has served patrons with premium pan-African concerts, recognizing and celebrating living African music legends.

The 2022 edition of the African Legends is the first to be hosted in December offering a new ‘December in Ghana’ experience for Ghanaians and the Diaspora.

Global Media Alliance, organizers of the event, announced five new initiatives to celebrate this year’s concert and institutionalize the recognition and celebration of African artistes and their music. These new additions include the Legends Digital Music Museum, the African Legends Hall of Fame, the Legends Music Show, the Legends Music Celebration, and the Legends Music Playlist.

Since its inception, the African Legends Night has celebrated music legends on the African continent including Hugh Masekela, Daddy Lumba, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Kojo Antwi, Femi Kuti, Amakye Dede, Kanda Bongoman, Awilo Longomba, George Darko, Ofie Kudjo, Freddie Meiway, Ben Brako, Gyedu Blay Ambulley, Samini, Nana Tuffuor, Akosua Adjepong, Amandzeba 2Face Idibia, Nat Brew among many others.

The show was proudly sponsored by HD Plus, Ghana Gas, Ghana Tourism Authority, Beyond the Return, Perception Management International Dosh, Dstrk 24 Restaurant, Alomo Bitters and Silverbird Cinemas with media partners – MX24, eTv, Citi FM, YFM, B&FT, Happy FM, Daily Guide, Ghanaweb, AmeyawDebrah, NYDJ Live, Oman FM and Net2 TV.
