PREACHERS is a group of talented young men who have a real zest for spreading the word of God through music. With this God-given ministry, they have brought a new dimension to the Gospel music industry in Ghana. Their musical genre is predominantly Rap but occasionally blends with R&B, Afro Pop, and Contemporary Gospel.
They formed the group in 2009 and named it PREACHERS; derived from the Scripture Mark 16:15, also known as The Great Commission which says “Go ye into the world and PREACH the gospel to all creation…”
To date, they have released one mixtape (Very Special) and debuted a studio album entitled Mark 16:15. They have since been on the move, ministering in high schools, tertiary institutions, churches and other events all over the country. Preachers continued to work out the ministry through their “GO HARD” Campus Tour in 2012 consequently building a strong fan base of youth. The Campus Tour later evolved into a bigger and better initiative so it was re-branded as the Bibles Up Tour to include Universities, Communities, Churches and so on.
By God’s divine favour, they began to enter into the limelight in 2011/2012, climbing up charts, getting a nomination for Best Afro Gospel Rap Group in the UK (Africa Gospel Music Awards 2012) and eventually Winning the Discovery of the Year Award at the Ghana Gospel Music Awards 2012 (A major breakthough for GH Gospel Rap Ministry). Their song “GO HARD” became the theme song for many international radio stations including GBS1 (UK), VOA (UK), Angels of Sweet Melodies (USA).
The video for GO HARD (Released 12 Jan. 2012) found its way to Rapzilla and featured on many local and international entertainment sites and Won the Most Wanted Song of the Year Award in the Christian Community Music Awards 2013.
Their slogan is “Bibles Up” because they stand for the truth – the Bible.
