ABOUT CWESI OTENG
Music reflects his passion, soul and drive- creative blend of cross-cultural African and western rhythms, contemporary elements and dynamic vocals laced with powerful thought-provoking messages revealing the rare anointing on him.
Cwesi recounts a testimony giving his life to Christ as a teenager and consequently being drawn to the things of God particularly church music thereafter.
This lead to over a decade of service, learning and preparation in his local church (Tema Community 8 Lighthouse Chapel Church, Ghana) as a worship leader and music director before making a ministry debut as a solo artiste in 2008 with his ‘Blessed Are They’ album.
True to this, ever since receiving the inspiration from God to re-brand and re-structure his music and ministry, impacting young people as another focus and embarking on charity works in 2010, a new chapter began in Cwesi’s ministry.
He has been garnering attention all over the world for his passionate, creative and quality music that has life changing messages particularly after releasing his inspiring hit single ‘Mercy (But for Your Mercy)’, plus it’s video in 2010.
