2018 has been a very productive year for some gospel artistes, though every year comes with its own challenges as far as being a gospel artiste is concerned, especially if you are yet to be discovered, some have really worked hard to make the most of the opportunities in 2018, hence coming into the limelight.
Although these artistes are known to be very active in one way or the other in the gospel music circle, they were not before 2018 a household name in the music industry in that sense or have produced any hit song before 2018.
Some of these rising gospel artistes have been very vibrant with worship events and were billed for several events last year whiles some have released hit songs that were very much celebrated. This tangible performance can also be linked to the inspirations drawn from top Gospel acts we know in this country such as Joe Mettle, Diana Antwi Hamilton, MOG etc who continue to pave the way.
This is editorially based, and we want to consider few of these young and rising gospel artistes who have officially come to stay in the gospel industry by virtue of their contribution to the gospel industry and performance in last year.
