Listen UP: Gifty Hammond – Mada Bo Shi

Published

on

Gifty is a trending gospel music producer, songwriter and singer, currently promoting her single “God Is Able” which comes off her upcoming album ‘My Testimony’. Amidst the groovy rhythm and rich harmonies, Gifty does something vocally more valuable and sustaining —she returns to the core melody and meaning of her song.

She has the real vocals, the real poise, and the real personality. Gifty is truly an experience, especially for those who have grown accustomed to discovering the weak reality of some of their favorite mainstream artists.

Born into a family of Muslims, she was the second of four girls. Gifty started as a backup singer in recording sessions and moved on to performing on stage with artists such as Nat Brew, Lady Talata, Reggie Zippy and many more. All this while she continued writing songs. She became a journalist through a reality show on T.V3 dubbed ‘Hottest Host’, where she won a 1 year contract with T.V3 as a reporter, and a cash price which she used to register herself into a remedial school to rewrite her SSCE, which she couldn’t pass in SHS.  She was forced into early marriage to a Muslim because she had converted to Christianity in SHS, something her mom and stepdad didn’t take kindly to.

Gifty survived her marriage by selling pure water, ear rings, and oranges etc. on the streets. After her contract with T.V 3 she conceived her son Nhyira and became so ill she could not again couldn’t work again. She searched for work but without any certificates, jobs were hard to come by. As such she could not afford preschool fees for her son, until a neighbor suggested that she teach him herself. This eventually resulted in the creation of Pinks and Blues International Schools with Gifty as the C.E.O. Now she is working on her arduous vision to provide quality education for every child no matter their financial, social or religious background.
