Talking about the inspiration behind his song ‘God is Working’, he said he composed it to express his appreciation to God when his wife finally got the fruit of the womb four years after their marriage.
He continued that he got married to his wife Benedicta Akesse Brempong in 2011 and “for four years, we were looking for the fruit of the womb and it wasn’t coming.”
“Then once we were dating we had prophetic words about the children God was going to give us, the kind of home we were [going to build] and a whole lot,” he said.
One time Dicta [his wife] comes to talk to me, and it leaves me broken. We are going around, doing the Lord’s work, but there is a need in your home. Going around praying for people, seeing some manifestations of the hand of God in their lives, but we have a need. And I went to God in prayer, and the Lord said to me, tell your wife that when I turn her captivity, she will be like a dreamer,” he added.
Several months later, Akesse revealed that he went to Obuasi with his wife, who was employed by the Ghana Commercial Bank, to attend a friend’s wedding.
On their way to Accra, he felt strongly that his wife was about to become pregnant.
“So I said to her, ‘This month and you are going to conceive. I sense that in my spirit,” he told Fiifi Folson.
Two months later, his wife was robbed at gunpoint while in a taxi. The robbers took her phone, and money, and attempted to remove her wedding band, but it was stuck in her fingers. They pushed her, and she landed on her arms.
When they reported the incident to the police, they requested a doctor’s report.
“After examining her, the doctor kept insisting that she should do a pregnancy test. And she was distraught because it was armed robbery, there was a sprain in her arm that is why my mother brought her there so, pregnancy test with a sprain in arm?
After the test, it was found that she was indeed pregnant.
