Gospel time: Tina Asante is out with third album!
Not much has been heard of gospel artiste Tina Asante after the release of her second album, Madamfo which had her popular Amansan track but after some pains-taking time in the studio, she is out with her third album titled Wo Boɔ Nie.
Songs on the 12-track album include My Helper, Hallelujah, Remember Me, Faithfulness, Broken Heart, Be Bold, Me Nyame Ye and Aseda Boɔ.
She recorded the album which spots reggae, highlife, worship and praise at Nacy Recordz, Wave Box Studio and Master’s Studio.
Wo Boɔ Nie is one of the reggae songs on the album. It is an upbeat, danceable track. In her lyrics, Tina describes God as a truthful entity whose sayings always come to pass.
One of the highlife pieces Tina offers is Me Nyame Ye. The song gives her the opportunity to praise God for His patience and goodness for rehabilitating her shattered dreams.
According to the singer, it took a while for her to come with this album because she wanted the best for her fans.
“I always go for quality and not quantity and that is why this album is now here. I strongly believe that many are going to like it because there are songs to satisfy different age groups,” Tina told Showbiz.
Always a bubbly personality, Tina is married to Rev. Kwabena Asante with three children. She attended St John’s Grammar School at Achimota and got into gospel music in the 1990s as a member of the Tree of Life Gospel Band at Lartehbiokorshie in Accra.
She later sang backing vocals for Helena Rabbles and was part of the Getty and Friends outfit before recording her own material. Her first album, Ma Nante was released in 2002. She followed that up with Madamfo in 2009. Wo Boɔ Nie came out two months ago.
It is an admirable collection which shows how much maturity has come her way since her debut album. She is happy the album is getting good exposure and hopes to back the promotion up with adequate live appearances.
