Preachers are arguably Ghana’s trailblazers when it comes with gospel rappers. They have toured the world with their music and the message of Jesus Christ. In 2019, the dynamic gospel trio has turned 10 years old.
The group is made up of three members, Obed Psych, Emani Beats and Edmund Baidoo. Preachers started as a group of five namely Michelle Majid-Michel, Dennis Enim (lead singer at the time), Obed Nzuh (also known as Obed Psych, now lead singer of the group), Edmund Baidoo and Emmanuel Awuni (also known as Emani Beats). They came together as a group in 2009 to form a gospel rap group which they together named PREACHERS. The name Preachers was derived from the Bible verse Mark 16:15 which says “Go ye into the world and Preach the gospel to all creation”. They recorded their first mixtape “Very Special” in 2010 with almost all songs produced by record producer and multi-instrumentalist KODA. (Source: Wikipedia)
