Sydney-based Ghanaian gospel rapper and songwriter DISCIPLE has been adjudged artiste of the year in Australia and Asia by the Africa Gospel Music Association (AGMA).
The executive body of the AGMA who recognized the good job the young Ghanaian musician was doing across the world decided to crown his good work with an award.
Sources close to the gospel musician said he was very delighted to pick up the award.
DISCIPLE started writing poetry and converting them into rap at age 15 but by 2009, the approach to his art form changed and a contemporary approach was taken.
Since then, DISCIPLE has worked on a concept which he recently released this year called ‘In Their Shoes’ – where he got people from the bible who influenced him, studied their stories and then gave a contemporary/urban twist to them so he can relate them to the desired audience.
DISCIPLE, since joining the urban ministry ‘The Commission’, has been doing tours and feeding the homeless, with the aim of spreading hope, faith and love.
In all things done, there is one thing that always remains and that is the fact that the Ghanaian gospel artiste does not shy away from his faith.
He is a proud, unashamed Christian who understands the importance of sharing the love of Christ without condemning people.
He hopes to achieve all these through his music.
