Talk about her tone, her stage presence, her composure, her confidence all put in one urn, you have Minister Negar. You should remember her from Denzel’s annual concert “Touching God’s Heart” where she led “YES YOU ARE THE LORD” with Minister Danny Nettey two years ago. Although she’s very young, Negar was actively involved in the birth of contemporary gospel music in Ghana having closely worked with the likes of Rev. Tom Bright-Davies and being a lead singer of Global Gospel Inspirers(GGI), a group that emanated from Tesano Baptist Church one of Ghana’s foremost contemporary choirs, made up of young talents.
Growing up she loved singing not really knowing what plans were set for her in the future. Negar began singing in secondary school as a soloist where she sung at Scripture Union programs and at the International Central Gospel Church, Akosombo. She was discovered by a group of young men and women who encouraged her and with the help of the pastor, became a regular minister at the church services of I.C.G.C, Akosombo.
Evolving into a praise and worship leader, she has graciously stood on the platforms of many churches leading God’s people in praise and worship.
She has graced the platforms of GPCC, Heartbeat Music, God’s Family Music Ministry along side other ministers as Alvin Slaughter, Patrick Duncan, No Tribe, Uncle Ato, Denzel Agyemang-Prempeh, Naa Mercy and a host of others.
Desire to Worship, the flagship worship Service of Nissi Music Incorporated, a ministry she started and leads, is held every year. This she has done with some of the finest of GH gospel musicians: Eugene Zuta, Joe Mettle, Quesie Boate, Denzel Agyemang-Prempeh, Naa Mercy, Uncle Ato and the PL Crew. Talking about this year’s concert, she says it is unprecedented. She calls it “GRACE EDITION” and its happening live at the Tesano Baptist Church next month June.
Negar Wujangi is also the music director of Tesano Baptist Church.
