TOP 10 GOSPEL SONGS IN 2018



With no proper research and proper findings, some Ghanaian radio and television presenters sit on their platforms saying: the gospel music industry is dead, the gospel industry is dying, there is no hit song in the country which is gospel, gospel artistes are not doing well in terms of song writing (Content), production and performance, gospel musicians are poor and more…


After a thorough research conducted by Remedi Entertainment, from all the ten regions of Ghana: On radio, Television, street, online and in private discussions with Top industry players  we can confidently say our gospel musicians are doing their best but we are not appreciating their effort.
If we appreciate their effort, we will not invite Nigerian artistes like: Eben, Steve Crown, Preye, Sinach and others to ALWAYS headline our MAJOR gospel shows.


In 2018, from 1st January to 31st October, the gospel fraternity can record a lot of well composed songs that are doing well in the system.
