Gospel musician Cwesi Oteng was elated when he presented his latest album ‘Anthems’ to the President at the Flagstaff House.
The artiste seems more excited after the encounter because the First Gentleman openly displays his album which is attached to a plaque in his office.
In an interview with Franky 5 on ‘This Is Gospel’ on Hitz FM, Cwesi Oteng was filled with joy when he recounted the President’s instruction to one of his aides to ensure that the plaque is well positioned in his office.
“He loved it. He told his assistants to put the plaque where everybody will see in his office,” the singer recalled.
Cwesi Oteng stated that he was very pleased with President Akufo-Addo’s gesture despite the workload staring at him in the face.
“He was so busy. While we were talking, they were passing papers to him to look at and things. He is not just there and receiving albums,” he said.
When asked how he managed to book an appointment with the President, he responded, “ask and the door shall be open.”
The artiste, who went to the Flagstaff with his daughter, mentioned that the meeting was significant in making the Head of State aware of the potentials within the creative sector.
‘Anthems’ is Cwesi Oteng’s third album following ‘Blessed Are They’ in 2009 and Mercy Project in 2012.
The 12-track album was recorded live at the First Love Centre in Accra and features songs such as ‘Next in Line’, ‘Great are you Lord’, ‘With Everything’ and ‘My Defense’.
