When I introduced the idea of having a Gospel Song/Artist Of The Week on the Hip-Hop Africa platform, I wasn’t sure I was ready for it. I had my doubts about the acceptance of the article by visitors to the site. Questions like, would they click the link? Would they read the piece? Would they return next week? and so on kept on lingering in my head. But I had to do it first. So here is my debut article on the Gospel HipHop Song/Artist Of The Week on the prestigious HipHop Africa platform.
