Come to think of it, when was the last time you heard a Gospel Riddim, like it is done among the ‘secular’ artistes, whereby a music producer releases a free instrumental for all or selected artistes to ‘ride’ on?
Your guess is as good as mine, it barely happens or it has never happened! I am yet to witness one among the Ghanaian Gospel industry, frankly.
Anyway, Gospel recording artiste, Nii Soul, after realising this ‘problem’, took it upon himself, to commence that rare culture in the Ghanaian Gospel fraternity. *Scroll down to continue reading, and listen to the instrumental for The Rapture Riddim*
On the 5th of March, 2017, Nii Soul got in touch with Karismaonline Magazine and revealed his intentions about the Gospel Riddim.
He discussed with Karisma:
“Riddims released here in Ghana by producers are usually for secular artists.
I want to do this strictly for the gospel acts.
Working on it, yet to finalize on how many acts I’ll put on.
Let’s go all out with this one…”

This promises to be fireworks, and oh, I almost forgot, The Rapture Riddim is a live recording!
So that makes it the very first live Riddim in Ghana, right?
The Songs are soon to be released, so anticipate.
