Ghana’s sensational gospel artiste Ivy-Q launches new album, ‘Baba God'

Ghana Ghana

Ghana’s sensational gospel artiste Ivy-Q has launched a new album, which is set to take the country and the continent by storm.

The ‘Baba God’ album, her third album was launched at the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) at Nungua in Accra and featured some legendary gospel artiste including Rev. Edwin Dadson, Pastor Jonas Odoi and Rev Harry Yawson.

The six-track album according to Ivy-Q, real name, Ivy Dede Quarshie is a very powerful one which would not only make waves in Ghana but the world at large.

She said the album has a very strong African rhythm which makes it very unique from her previous two albums.

As a gospel musician who loves to see people solve their problems and communicate to God through music, she said, the new album is another blueprint to spreading the word of the Lord.

“I believe that by the leading of the Holy Spirit, the album stands out and would be accepted by everyone across the length and breadth of the country and beyond,” she added.

Admittedly, she said, getting through with this outstanding album was not easy but by the Grace of God, she has been able to pull out another masterpiece. Baba God, the title track, she said has a very traditional and cultural so the rhythm cuts across Africa and everyone would be pleased to listen to the song.

She said she settled on a six-track album because the songs are so nice and had to reserve the rest for the next album. “I am expecting that I would move from my terrain to another level, looking at the international market including Nigeria, Togo and Benin to promote the song,” she said.

“People have really accepted the song already in the country and looking forward to it going far after the official launch,” she added.

The album she said, is already available in all music shops across the country and urged the public to grab copies.

Manager of the artiste Pastor Telford Abayateye was also optimistic that Ivy-Q would take Ghana gospel to a different height with the new album.

“I have worked with Ivy over the years and this is one of the best gospel albums I have ever come across and certain it would do well,” he stated.

In a couple of years, he said, the artiste would cross borders while calling on Ghanaians to support the good work of artiste in the country.

Songs on the album include Baba God, Something New, Mombo no ose, In your presence, Oh come to all ye faithful and Praise Him.

The launch also saw ministrations from Apostle Oko Hackman, Rev. Edwin Dadson, Rev. Dr. Harry Yawson and Pastor Jonas Odoi.
