Being a teacher by profession, one of the country’s finest female gospel artistes, Mercy Twum Ampofo popularly known on the gospel music scene as Ohemaa Mercy, strived to become a great force in Ghana’s gospel industry. This radio-show host debuted into the industry with the vision to encourage, to win souls for the Kingdom of God, and to draw the attention of his listeners to Jesus through her music. While enjoying massive airplay and numerous awards to her name, this songbird remains resilient about her role as apostle of the Gospel of Jesus.
