‘Wogbe Jeke’ is a gospel song – Amandzeba explains

Amandzeba, a.k.a. Nat Brew, a highlife legend, claims that his hit song “Wogbe Jeke” is a gospel tune.

He made the case that gospel music is essentially about truth on a recent episode of TV3’s Day Show with Berla Mundi. He cited his song “Wogbe Jeke,” which refers to God’s creation of humanity, as an example.

“It’s a gospel song. Just where the portion that you heard says, ‘K3j3 jenjensa Nyonm) b) w),’ ‘from the beginning, God created us.’ So, if I sing as long as God created us, is it not a gospel? Is it not the truth? I’m saying the gospel is supposed to be about the truth,” he said.

Amandzeba Speaking of Okomfo Anokye, Nat Brew mentioned that if he had been a white man, the Bible would have documented his miraculous actions, such as calling down the stool from the sky.

“If Okomfo Anokye was a white man, he would have been in the Bible by now. Yeah. What did he do? He conjured the stool from the heavens. Why didn’t he go to, let’s say, some shrine in the corner and pull the stool out? He conjured it from heaven. It tells you how powerful we have been,” he added.

Because native spirituality and culture are associated with darkness, he bemoaned the disdain for them and their culture.

But he also emphasized that light was created by God’s creative command out of darkness, highlighting the strength and promise found in the nation’s customs and beliefs.

“Our culture and our tradition have all of these aspects of spirituality in them. But you see, you leave yours because this is the black pot. Oh, it’s evil. They say anything black is evil; meanwhile, before God created the earth, there was total darkness. So, out of that darkness came that creativity for him to say that command, Let there be light,” he said.

Amandzeba, also known as Nat Brew, is a renowned Ghanaian musician known for his song “Wogbe Jeke,” which translates to “We’ve come afar” in the Ga language.

The song is celebrated for its rich cultural heritage and is a staple in Ghanaian music.

Amandzeba’s music often reflects his African roots, and he adopted the name Amandzeba, meaning “Tradition Child” or “Custom Child,” following the success of “Wogbe Jeke,” to honor his connection to African tradition.
