Born Lawrence Mensah to Ghanaian parents in the gold-rich region of Ashanti, Mr Music, as he is known in musical circles, rose from the humble beginnings of following the popular musical bands of his childhood days and the harmonious choral performances of nearby churches, notably the St Peter’s Cathedral Church Choir in Kumasi, Ghana to an artist of world renown.
He can, even after three decades, vividly recall how he skipped household chores and ecstatically bolted away to enjoy the performance of heart-warming and inspirational songs of his time.
Had he been given the opportunity, young Mensah would have definitely released his first single if not his first album at an adolescent age since his talent and passion for music could conspicuously be seen at the very early stages of his life. But this opportunity evaded him until his twenties when his hustle through life sent him down south to the capital city of Ghana – Accra.
It was during these wilderness moments in the capital that he had the opportunity to record his first three singles namely ‘Adwuma Biara Ye Adwuma’, ‘Yenye Wo Den Ni’, and ‘Behind the Scenes’. Since then, he hasn’t looked back.
Hits upon hits, year after year, Mr Music Mensah hasn’t failed to rise to the occasion in dazzling gospel and inspirational music lovers home and abroad with great, rhythmic gospel songs. ‘Great God’, ‘You are God’, Kokroko, ‘Jesus’, ‘Blessing’ and a host of other songs all go a long way to make a strong statement of his musical prowess.
Currently, Mr Music is relishing the honour of having been nominated by the prestigious Gospel Choice Music Awards in four different categories for his song ‘Blessing’ – Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year, Gospel/Religious Songwriter of the Year, Male Artist/Vocalist of the Year, and Song of the Year.
Mr Music Mensah is inspirational, authentic, entertaining and above all consistent. He never fails to rise to the occasion in dazzling gospel and inspirational music lovers home and in the diaspora with great, rhythmic gospel songs.
His latest track, ‘Blessing’, released last year, enjoys massive airplay and patronage across the length and breadth of the nation and has been the Ghana Gospel Music Artist of the Year (Diaspora Category). ‘Blessing’ is available on all major streaming platforms.
His latest track, ‘Higher Heights’ enjoys massive airplay and patronage across the length and breadth of the nation. ‘Higher Heights’ is available on all major streaming platforms.
