New gospel music sensation, Erasmus Ebo Essuman Aidoo, known in music circles as Essuman has revealed that his maiden single, "Break Loose" was inspired by his past addiction story.

According to him, God motivated him to use his past experiences to inspire others who are in similar situations not to lose hope.

Speaking to 'The Spectator', he said "God saved me from waywardness, and addiction from alcohol and sex and inspired me to write this song so that people in the same situation can be saved. Also, my dear wife, Patience played a vital role," he noted.

Essuman said the song preaches the story of how one can be saved and live a life of freedom in Christ Jesus by the power of the Holy Ghost.

"There is freedom in Christ Jesus for the addicts, the sick, the afflicted, people in bondage of unforgiveness, stagnation, depression among others," he said.

Speaking on his journey, Essuman, said, 'It has not been easy but God has been faithful, I had a bad experience with the first studio he visited, but Fredibelle and Nana Ama Hayford who I featured encouraged me and provided massive technical support," he said.

Essuman is also the founder and president of a Christian NGO called I Smile Because You Care (ISBYC), which feeds the needy and preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ.

As part of their activities, they have embarked on prison outreach, built mechanize boreholes, community water reservoir and water treatment plant for deprived communities, as well as supported deprived schools with reading materials and most importantly, donated Bibles to individuals.

It is his desire to use gospel music to raise funds and build some networks to champion this noble agenda of touching lives.

'Break Loose' was recorded by Pastor Shadrach Yawson of Wavebox studio, and is available on all digital music stores.
