I want to be remembered as an Afro-Gospel artiste – Scott Evans
Contrary to the popular notion that gospel music is a genre of music, talented award-winning gospel singer Scott Evans refuted the notion, sharing that he wanted to be noted or remembered as an Afro-Gospel artiste.
Scott explains that a genre has more to do with the style and groove of music rather than the lyrical content it carries, and as such, gospel content (The message of grace and salvation) can be channeled through any genre of music globally recognized.
Speaking to Kafui Dei on GTV’s Breakfast Show, Scott defines Afro-Gospel for which he wants to be known for as the fusion of the Word of God through music with other mainstream and commercial genres such as Afrobeat, Hiphop, recently rising Amapiano genre, and more.
For Scott, it’s all about changing the status quo, one of which is the perception and limitation of gospel music to contemporary worship and highlife grooves most people are used to in our part of the world.

Scott Evans also hinted at a new single up for release in March titled ‘100 Percent’. According to the Afro-gospel artiste, the world should watch out for this song which obviously preaches the gospel as well as create a vibe the youth can relate with.
Speaking to WorshippersGh, Scott is determined to create Gospel Music that can compete and overtake the commercial secular music that most people jam to.
