Undoubtedly he is the most successful Ghanaian musician in recent times bagging ten international awards in a space of ten months, including Best African Gospel Music award in the African Music Awards (AMAs).

The name, Sonnie Badu is a household name in the UK and in Ghana where he hails; he managed to pull off one of the biggest gospel concerts in the history of the country having the National Theatre filled to capacity.

The concert, Ghana Worships with Sonnie Badu, is in its second year this year and organisers, JC Media Ghana and Events Street Africa, are promising a bigger event taking place in Accra and Kumasi.

The anointed man of God and the Worshiper as he is widely known was full of expectation when he interacted with the media at the Xpress International Hotel in Accra Tuesday ahead of the first phase of the concert in Accra come Saturday, October 30.

The concert supported by Ghanaian international footballer Prince Tagoe, is expected to exceed last year’s with Sonnie Badu proclaiming that, the “Heavens will kiss the earth” that day.

He said the sheer numbers wanting to attend the concert will eventually force organisers to hold subsequent events at the Accra and Kumasi Sports Stadia respectively.

He revealed that, this year’s concert will coincide with his birthday and that of Prince Tagoe and right after the concert, he will be donating items to nine orphanages in the country including the Weija Leprosarium.

The Worshiper is coincidently also celebrating his eleventh year in music and within that time, he has managed to release nine books and currently leading the world renowned Sonnie Badu Ministries.

He disclosed that, he will be embarking on a 20 year project here in Ghana which will include a music outfit, Sonnie Badu Music Academy, and a movie production unit with the sole aim of unearthing talents and also affording Ghanaian musicians an opportunity to hit the international market and stage.

For an aspiring footballer like himself who had to relinquish that dream to the service of God, Sonnie Badu is also looking at scouting young football talents for the international stage through his Eagle Eye Football Management.

As an ambassador of Compassion UK, he is set to return to Ghana with some fellow ambassadors on a charity visit to help build orphanages in Ghana.

Ghana Worships with Sonnie Badu will also be held in Kumasi at the KNUST Great Hall on November 6.
