The history of Christian Reggae Music in Ghana cannot be written without acknowledging names such as Nat Abbey who has been in the industry for a long while.
The award winning musician who until recently has been lost in the music scene has explained that he is not jealous of his colleagues who have been churning out hit upon hit in the last few years. Speaking on ATV’s ‘The Christian Entertainment Review’ with host Nii Noi, Mr. Abbey noted that even though he sometimes feels discouraged about his progress, he is certainly not jealous of the shine of the likes of his colleagues including Joe Mettle and Akesse Brempong.
‘…There are seasons and times. There was a time for the(late) Danny Nettey and now is the time for Joe Mettle, Akesse Brempong and the likes. I really look up to them. Even though I would not say they are my friends, I learn a lot from them. I’m not jealous of their shine because I know God deals with us in seasons and times. If you are able to celebrate somebody, it will also be your time and people will celebrate you. Sometimes I feel discouraged but let’s continue to push the agenda,’ Nat Abbey stated.
The Gospel Reggae musician further advised the public not to judge a Gospel musician by his/ her social hype rather on the person’s soul winning abilities.
‘Sometimes, people like to justify social media likes and views by the level of influence but influence is not in social hype; influence is in saving a soul,’ he added
Nat Abbey started his career with names such as MOG, Joe Mettle, Akesse Brempong, Francis Amo et al. He has to his credit a number of awards including the Bass Awards, Ghana Urban Gospel Awards amongst others.
He is the host of Gospel Reggae Night (a flagship Gospel Reggae event in Ghana since 2013) that provides its audience the opportunity to praise and worship God in a reggae style, renew their relationship with God and for those who are not born again the opportunity to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Personal Savior.
He is the President of Tehilliah Vocal Perfection, a music training school.
