Nana Nyamekye coming off strongly into the entertainment industry with heavy punchlines in a viral video is gifting fans with a brand new single for the year 2020.

Rap Prophet Nyamekye is releasing both audio and official music video for the song which was engineered and mastered by Ghana's finest song producer, Wei Ye Oteng of Drumline Studios.

"HEM? OT?", contrary to the expectations of fans is not a rap song. Prophet Nana Nyamekye's freestyle rap video went viral recently where the real-life man of God was seen rapping and delivering solid punchlines to the amusement of many netizens.

Nana Nyamekye's style of music is the contemporary Ghanaian style with Afrobeats fused with a rap that focuses more on using morally acceptable words and primarily samples the word of God. "My music is aimed at attracting music lovers to God and encouraging those in all sorts of unfortunate situations. I wish to redefine the Ghanaian Gospel music industry. Jesus Christ is my inspiration. The Word of God and what it stands for, it's relevance in today's world drives me to write my songs. Faith in God is everything and the world must know this through my music." - says Rap Prophet whose real is Nana Asamoah Nyamekye.

The single is available on all online platforms and features the pastor singing a moody, mild hood in thanksgiving to God for all he has done for him. "HEM? OT?" is a Ga phrase that directly translates to "take your stone" but use it in reference to giving thanks and adoration to the maker and giver of life and wealth, Jehovah. "I've been through turbulent life and trying to separate the time in between when I have it all and when I nearly gave up" - Rap Prophet explained. I only have to thank HIM when I think about all this. He stressed further.

Video for "HEM? OT?" was directed by RichShuga with beautiful scenes of different locations in Accra.
