The biggest Christmas package for Christians this year is finally here, He Reigns by Minister BiBi! Obuasi has seen the launch of three gospel tracks in less than two months and this one promises to be the icing on the cake. The song which was written in the space of a year by the sensational Ghanaian gospel artiste is also sang in a Ugandan language.
The BSC Music holder from the University of Education, Winneba, couldn’t hide his joy when he poured out his heart in these words during the launch of the most anticipated track of the month.
“I have always loved to worship God in other languages. Having a Nigerian background has really helped me in appreciating diverse cultures in world especially in Africa.
Hearing “He Reigns” in another language to me was thrilling. The fact that God understands every language can not be over emphasized,” he said.
“Early this year, 2016, I was blessed to start this new single (song) with a great friend of mine in Uganda.
JACKIE NAKITENDE is an awesome Christian and an amazing gospel musician based in Uganda. One of the things that struck me about her was how she expressed her christian faith with boldness when I didn’t even have an idea or clue she was a Gospel musician for weeks,” he added.
“I believe God has breathed on this song to bless the world. I have fused in one of the most sung worship choruses in Ghana “WE GIVE GLORY TO THE LORD, HE REIGNS” with my original inspired composition as verses and by God’s grace, Naky helped me in translating in it Luganda, one of the major languages in UGANDA.
We just can’t wait to release this song. Its so beautiful especially singing in UGANDA tongue,” he said.
“Naky will tell you that the first time I sang the song back to her she was surprised how I did it. I believe its Christ Jesus
AFUGA in LUGANDA means HE REIGNS. He reigns my christian brothers and sisters
He rules in the affairs of men.
I declare as a man graced to minister through songs to you that as you open up your spirit to listen to God in this spirit- filled song, your life will never remain the same.”
