It was all joy and excitement as the choral group of the Mamprobi District of The Church of Pentecost was adjudged overall winners of the maiden Dansoman Area Women’s Ministry music contest.

The event was climaxed the ministry’s annual end-of-year thanksgiving service dubbed “Aseda Kese” Area Joint Service held at the Mamprobi Central Assembly auditorium on Tuesday, December 5, 2023.

It was a beautiful sight to behold as girls and women, (young and ood alike) from the 15 districts turned up in their numbers to observe the much anticipated competition.

The music contest, which took centre stage on the night, saw all the participating districts cladded in Women’s Ministry paraphernalia with different designs and outfits. All the contesting choirs had one paraphernalia or the other in their outfits to show forth their readiness to battle it out for the ultimate.

The contest began with the New Mamprobi Choir, arrayed in their Women’s Ministry branded lacostes ad black skirts to match. They sang, “What Can I Offer to You O’ Lord” composed by Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah (Rtd.) as their opening song and descended the stage with the “Mo Mmo Ose Mma Ne Din” one the songs on the 2018 Theme Songs compilation of the church.

Next to minister was the Women’s Ministry choir from Gbegbeyise District who sang a number of the Women’s Ministry collection of songs which included, “Mmaa Yesom, Yesom Ama Awurade,” “Ye Me Deborah,” among others.

Laterbiokoshie District mounted the stage to unwrap what they had been preparing to offer in the contest. Their opening song signalled victory in their quest for supremacy on the night, ministering “Yesu Ye Me Nkunim Frankaa Yi,” one of the classics from the 2019 Theme Song collection of The Church of Pentecost. They ended their ministration with, “Mede Nwerapa” another song of encouragement from the Women’s Ministry collection of songs.

James McKeown Worship Centre ascended the stage with the popular “Yedawase Yeyi W’aye” song and placed the icing on the cake with a song from the stables of one of Ghana’s renowned gospel musicians, Cindy Thompson’s “Dromo.”

A faith-quickening testimony from Deaconess Janet on God’s provision of the fruit of the womb after several years of childlessness also followed.

Later on, Russia Worship Centre also ascended the stage with the “Mo Yesu Mo” song and went into full force with a Twi Chrsitmas Melody, “Yede Anigye Mawo Afehyiapa” and capped of their ministration with the “Okaa Na W’aye” song.

Mamprobi District did not let down their guns either as they glamourously ascended the stage with one of the Women’s Ministry songs titled, “Adom Bi Asiesie Me” and rounded it up with “Ohempong Kristo No,” another of Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah’s songs.

Glefe District ascended the stage in similar fashion with the ‘Mmaa Moada Anaa’ song and exited the stage with ‘Ebenezer New Nyame De Yen Abeduru Nie’.

Dr. Priscilla Sey, thrilled the house with another of Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah’s songs titled, “Maba Wo Nnwunu Ase” composed in 2012.

Praise Acchord from PIWC Dansoman also took turns to lead the house in some worshipful tunes comprising, “Ebenezer,” “Kronkron Ne Wo Awurade” and “Menso Mene Hwan?”

Sakaman District ascended on stage with another of Apostle Professor Poku Onyinah’s songs titled, “Y’edawase a Efata Wo,” which they also ministered as their main song.

Sahara District though small in their numbers got the house grooving to their cocktail rendition of the ‘Aseda Ben’ by the evergreen Daughters of Glorious Jesus interspersed with Harmonious Chorale’s “Nea Wode Me Abeduru Ni.”

Bethel District, also didn’t fail to unplug one of Apostle Professor Poku Onyinah’s,  “Zion’s Strong Tower” and capped it off with a song titled, “Joy Like A River.”

Dansoman District latched onto “Mo” by Piesie Esther followed by Harmonious Chorale’s “Nea Wode M’abeduru Nie”  and exited the stage with “Oseyie” by SP Kofi Sarpong.

Mpoasei District pulled out one of the 2023 theme songs classic titled, “Gyina” by Rose Ahenkora.

Chemunaa District, however, stole the night with their hand-held battery powered torches with which they ministered their song to drive home a main thought of Jesus as the light of the world. Their choice of music genre was quite different from the others as they all sang in unism and danced energetically in accordance to the typical Ga-speaking coastal lifestyle. Rounding it off with “Jerusalem,” their ministration received the deserving cheers and applause from the audience.

Twereboa District also ministered another of the renowned Ghanaian Police Officer and musician, SP Kofi Sarpong titled, “Mekamfo No.”

A well-crafted poetry recital by Deaconess Eunice Awuah was enough to switch the euphoria for a brief exhortation by Mrs. Rebecca Sey, wife of the Area Head, Apostle Daniel Sey, who was also in attendance.

She spoke on the topic: “The Lord Will Bless You Anyhow,” inspired from 2 Corinthians 9:8.

The judges then took to the podium to deliver the results from accumulated scores after Apostle Daniel Sey led the house in prayer after the exhortation.

The judges gave the five areas of assessment as follows; Vocal Quality, Stage Craft, Creativity in song, Costume and Number of supporting members from the respective districts.

Based on this, New Mamprobi District was adjudged the Best Dressed choir while Gbegeyise District took the award for the District with the highest supporting members.
