Nii Okai advises upcoming gospel performers not to pursue stardom

 Nii Okai, who is most known for songs like "Moko B," "Yesu Hi," and "Reign Forever," among others, pleaded for aspiring gospel musicians to remain authentic and avoid competing with anyone in a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz.

He urged gospel performers to support emerging talent and stated that God rewards loyalty with success.

 You're not required to be like everyone else. You won't succeed if your goal is fame; but, you will succeed if your goal is loyalty. God will eventually invest in others on your behalf if you invest in others for Him, he said.

On September 17, Nii Okai will perform a concert called Mokobe@20 to celebrate 20 years of music-making at the ICGC Zoe Temple in Tema.

Joe Mettle, KODA, Eugene Zuta, MOGmusic, Kofi Karikari, Naa Mercy, David Osabutey, and Lordina the Soprano are just a few of the artists listed for the performance.

Nii Okai claims that the gospel singers who were promoted for the show were deliberately chosen to commemorate a milestone since they had contributed to his success over the previous 20 years.

"I've developed a few musicians who are now successful, and I'm always proud of their accomplishments. As a result, I'll have the chance to meet them all at this concert, which is really important to my career and musical journey.

In 2003, Nii Okai released Moko Be, an eight-track music album produced by KODA, catapulting him into the public eye.

Popular songs like Woana Na and Moko Be were produced by the album, which also included performers like as the late Danny Nettey and Nana Yaa Amihere.

Currently, Nii Okai is the director of Tema, Ghana-based Harbour City Mass Choir (H.C.M.C. ), an interdenominational music ministry.
