apa Yaw Nkrumah Kyeremanten, known as Paa Kyeremanten is a young man passionate about the things of God and a worshipper filled with anointing and grace. He was born into a musically gifted family.
He started off as a drummer in his church at a tender age and eventually started singing.
He disclosed he was already passionate about singing but was engrossed in drumming, he started singing after he was pushed by his music director.
He currently serves as the Head of Music (deputy) for Royalhouse Chapel International, under the auspices of the Apostle General Sam Korankye-Ankrah & Rev. Mrs Rita Korankye-Ankrah.
Paa Kyeremanten isn’t only into music but also a television producer for Powerline TV (a television station for his church, Royalhouse) and is also heavily involved in the Fashion Business.
He is also a teacher of the rudiments and art of music.
This might come as a surprise to most Ghanaians, but Pastor Paa was also a contestant in the popular TV singing competition on TV3 known as Mentor.
In an interview regarding his inspiration for his new song Ayeyi Wura, he disclosed that the song was birthed during the Covid lockdown period after he, and his friends went to the studio to get some songs written to be produced.
“No matter the circumstance and what we were going through at the time God still deserved to be praised cos he inhabits the praise of his people… in good times and bad times…
He owns the praise… hence the song AYEYI WURA,” he disclosed.
Pastor Paa admitted he has been in the industry for 20 years and has noticed some gospel acts do not really get the credit they deserve. He also pointed out that, churches or programme organizers do not invite musicians based on their anointing and the weight they carry but they are invited based on social media popularity. Hence, gospel musicians who do not have a lot of social media followers are hardly invited to programmes.
He proposed a change and also suggested artists must be invited for their worth and what they carry more than their following
Speaking on the issue of gospel artists supporting each other, he revealed he goes the extra mile to support his colleagues wholeheartedly and in every way he can.
“I don’t care if you put me on your concert or not, I still show up and give my 100% and I think there are a lot of other gospel musicians also like me who would support me in the various ways they can and so that is not entirely true. However, you don’t expect someone to just get up and come and support you if you don’t let them know that you need their support,” he cautioned.
He admitted that, as gospel musicians, they are not where they used to be,” We are obviously not where we want to be as gospel musicians, having companies invest heavily into our programmes and concerts but the truth is we are certainly not where we used to be .. it will get better.”
Pastor Paa Kyeremanten admonished Ghanaians to expect something spectacular as he is about to release a song with gospel artiste, MOG and a few more songs with some Ghanaian gospel artists.
He sees himself as still vibrant and active in the music scene affecting lives and worshipping with more anointing in a few years to come.
