CLIMA Africa Awards 2022 Nominees List Is Out

The apex of gospel music awards in Africa called “Christian Legendary and Impact Makers Awards (CLIMA AFRICA)” dazed the gospel music artists and the entire industry with eight (11) new Categories.

This year, with the Awards expanding outside the shores of Nigeria to the other parts of Africa for the second time, it has also expanded its scope of nominations to include more African regions and Christian Impact Makers, Artists, Managers, and other arms of the gospel music industry. This has increased the number of Award categories from 28 to 39.

According to Uwak Mike, the CEO of ClIMA AFRICA Magazines and Awards; “The 2022 edition promises to be the best of all editions; because the collaborations with partners from other African Countries will enable us reach more Impact makers and Artiste whom we couldn’t reach in the past. Moreover, the introduction of New Categories to celebrate Producers, Managers, Stage Performers, Gospel music legends etc. is also a boost on our profile”.

The theme for the 6th edition (EKO 2022) is AFRICA IS RISING. This is a clarion call to arise and take our position as the best gospel music industry globally. A call to see gospel artists unites, with one mind, heart, soul and spirit till we capture the world with our God-given talents for God.

Meanwhile; the Awards Event is Scheduled for Saturday, 8th Oct 2022 at AGIP HALL OF MUSON CENTRE, Lagos; and the voting will commence on the 12 midnight of August 1st via the official website http://www.climaafrica.com

Tyscot Records Announces New Signing, Melissa Bethea

If the voice of Melissa Bethea sounds familiar, maybe you’ve heard it on JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise tracks such as “No Holding Back” or the Top 30 hit, “You Are Worthy.” Now, fans can hear her on her own, as the New Flavor Entertainment production duo of Clarence Singleton and Eric Davis, and Tyscot Records have partnered to release the Newark, Jersey native’s poignant new track, “You’re Coming Out” (New Flavor Entertainment /Tyscot). It was written by Singleton, a seasoned songwriter and producer (Byron Cage, Marvin Sapp, Hezekiah Walker), and Davis, a producer who’s co-written a dozen of J.J. Hairston & Youthful Praise’s big radio hits such as “After This”, “Lord of All”, and “Resting on His Promise.”



“This song is my personal testimony about overcoming infertility,” Bethea says of the power ballad. “Five years into our marriage, my husband, Joseph, and I tried to have a baby. The first trimester there was no heartbeat. Then, it happened again, and I had a miscarriage. I said to myself, `Lord, why can’t I carry a child?’ Then, God told me that He’d give me a miracle in six months. Nothing happened for six months. At the end of that six months, I finally got pregnant and eventually had my daughter, Jade, who will be three years old in November. She’s, my miracle.

”Meanwhile, the talented trio is hard at work on Bethea’s first full-length album. “I believe the album will be used to encourage, uplift, and inspire,” she says. “So many people need hope because they’ve lost so much with this pandemic This is going to refresh, revive, renew, and point people to Jesus.” Listening

It’s Okay


I used to think it was better to bottle up my feelings, because it was the best way of dealing.

Curled up in my bed staring at the ceiling, instead of letting go and let my wounds get healing.

I was told if i hid my pain it will be for my own gain but all it did was drain me.

Then i came to a realization that I am God’s creation. He said i will have tribulation but it’ll be for a little duration.

Because he overcame the world i am free from condemnation. So i will no longer restrain these feelings but rather release and feel peace.

It’s okay to cry I’m human not super human so if that’s what i must do to move on and smile I would and accept it as my new Lifestyle.
