This year though not rolled out fully has seen so much talent in the Gospel music industry. Musicians have really worked had to raise the banner for Christ.
Each and every artiste on the scene tried or is still trying to be at the top of the game hence working round the clock trying to produce a list that will make them stand out and exemplify God’s Excellency. In doing so, songs have come and competition has been stiffed and ways have been paved for new artists.
Fresh Music genres: They come and always give a lasting impression (or not). This is a look at what 2016 has to offer both in new upcoming artists and established artists inspiring the generation.
