Ghanaian gospel musician, Evangelist Diana Asamoah, has mentioned reggae music as her primary source of motivation to sit and write songs that serve the test of time.
According to her, Reggae legend Bob Marley has been of great impact to her music journey as she listens to his songs that are always rich in lyrics, uplifting and more or less like a gospel.
“Sensible songs are refreshing and devoid of foul langauage and contoversies therefore, I listen to reggae music and especially Bob Marley to pick lyrics that shape the gospel songs I write.
“Gospel music is about speaking about God and I beleive most reggae songs speak about God and talk about good things,” she said.
Diana Asamoah said she has always been conscious of producing songs that’s not just last for a few weeks and are lost and forgotten. She stressed that she is motivated to churn out songs that may not trend but well continue to serve as a blessing to generations yet unborn.
“I do lifetime songs like Bob Marley [does]; that is why most of my music are Pentecostal hymns because they will not wither in changing seasons,” she said in an excluscive interview.
The ‘Onyame Ba’ lyricist confessed that despite her fame, none of her songs was written by her but her way of glorifying God Almighty has elevated her in life.
