‘Wogbe Jeke’ is a gospel song – Amandzeba explains

Highlife legend Amandzeba, formerly known as Nat Brew, has stated that his hit song, ‘Wogbe Jeke,’ is a gospel song.

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 Nat Brew also touched on the historical figure Okomfo Anokye, suggesting that if he were a white man, his miraculous deeds, like conjuring the stool from the heavens, would have been recorded in the Bible.

“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.

He bemoaned the disdain for indigenous spirituality and culture, which are frequently written off as evil since they are connected to the dark.

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.

Started as Nat Brew, Amandzeba is a well-known musician from Ghana, best known for his song “Wogbe Jeke,” which means “We have come afar” in Ga.

A mainstay of Ghanaian music, the song is praised for its rich cultural legacy.

After “Wogbe Jeke” became popular, Amandzeba changed his name to Amandzeba, which means “Tradition Child” or “Custom Child,” to honor his African heritage. His music frequently reflects his African heritage.
