Veronica And Bernice

They are both choristers at the Jesus Generation Church in Accra, so when it happened that they came to live together, Mrs. Veronica Acquah-Donkor and Beatrice Enyonam Komabu started singing together as they went about their day to day activities.

The two told showbiz that they began to write songs, something they believe was a gift from God. As Christians, they did not take it forgranted but prayed over it with support from their head pastor, Rev. Anyani-Boadum.

Thanks to their church father Mr. Ayensu Kumi who was willing to produce them, the dream of coming out with their won album has become a reality and Vero and Beatrice can count themselves among the many who are ministering to people through gospel music.

Also known as Vee Bea?s, the duo who are being managed by Pastor Owusu Kwabene admit that it has not been easy but they were able to pull through because they relied on the good Lord and wonderful people in their church.

Listening to all eight songs on the album, one cannot help but congratulate them on a good attempt.

?Awurade Awie?, the title track opens the album, in the reggae vein, the duo sing that when the Lord is in control, victory is sure. They go on to sing that they put their request before the Lord and He has answered in his own time.

A very danceable tune ?Yesu La? follows in Ga and Twi, saying there is power in the blood of Jesus, it gives us victory over the enemy. It will be quite difficult to listen to this one and sit still.

?M?akoma Tomiyem?, a very solemn one says ?Jesus the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords has given me inner satisfaction?. The song will be appropriate for quite time.

As is the belief of Christians, when one has Christ, one has everything and that is exactly what the lyrics of ?Yesu Kawoho? say. They encourage all to rely on Jesus in all circumstances and all shall be well.

The flipside opens with ?Gye Me? literally meaning ?Save me?. It is a call on God to save her from the hands of the enemy so that she can stand for him (the Lord) alone.

?Ahin mu hin?, ?Sinner Man? and ?Me Nyame nim? follow in that order to close the album which was launched in August this year.

Coincidentally, both Vero and Beatrice are designers which mean that apart from singing together, they cut and sew together. Vero comes from Nkwatia in the Eastern region while Beatrice is a native of Tegbi in the Volta region.

Vero urges all to grab a copy of the cassettes because they will be inspired by the messages. On her part, Beatrice says the album is not only for unbelievers but Christians who have lost hope, ?we wish them Jesus?, she said.

As to whether they feel intimated by all the big names in the gospel music industry or the emergences of so many artistes with this music type, the duo say they are not shaken because just as there are many preachers, so are there many musicians but God has his own, ?the elect?.
