Cwesi Oteng records next album live

Award-winning gospel artiste, Cwesi Oteng and his team on Friday September 15, 2017 recorded an album dubbed ‘Anthems’ with FloRiva Incorporated.

Cwesi who has been silent for the past 4 years has put together anthems for his next album which was recorded live at First Love Centre at Legon in Accra.

According to Cwesi, initially he did not want to include an audience for the recording but later the idea changed.

“It was not our plan to even have an audience for this recording. After being silent for almost four years I did not think it wise to advertise a concert for people to gather to listen to what? Of course we recorded entirely new songs but my heart for this project wanted to work behind the scenes and bring to my waiting fans a product they will treasure and refer to for their intimate encounters with God,” he said.

“I have never done a project where I felt so out of control. Everyone on the team knew that a higher hand was controlling and directing everything.

The songs we recorded will extend far beyond the beautiful shores of Ghana. I call it Africa’s definition of global music.

I see many nations and tribes singing these songs in large gatherings,” he added.

Cwesi has asked all his fans and loved ones to help spread to support his ministry especially this new project.

Cwesi known in private life as Hermon Cyrus Kwesi Nhyira Oteng has songs like ‘God Dey Bless Me’ ‘I Win,’ ‘Mercy’ and ‘Kabiyesi.’
