Ghanian gospel musician Obaapa Christy has disclosed that her popular “Hallelujah Hosanna” song was originally written by a Ghanaian Muslim.
The musician said the Muslim wrote the song for her because he cherished her craft and wanted to contribute to her success.
Appearing on the mid-morning show on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, Obaapa Christy said the Muslim friend has pledged to write English songs for her to release and perform.
Hallelujah Hosanna is a Hill song that describes the nature of God as the creator and the sustainer of humanity, and it presents an opportunity to the listener to praise and thank God.
The song brings the listener to the place of deep spiritual knowledge about the nature and attributes of God.
The song was released on March 3, 2020.
When asked if the Muslim has converted to Christianity, she said, ”he is still a Muslim. He is a devoted Muslim. He is a lover of my works and cherishes my craft. That was why he wrote the song for me. I appreciate him, and I am grateful for what he has done for me”.
She told host Sokoohemaa Kukua that the decision to do English songs was inspired by a desire to reach more people with God’s word through music.
According to her, she is currently working on several English songs.
She also revealed she would soon be going to school.
