Multi-award-winning actor, singer, voice-over artist, and television presenter, Joseph Benjamin set to release his long-awaited audio track ‘I Will Praise’ in conjunction with talented Ghanaian Us-based singer, Nana Adwoa - Reports the Vanguard.
Benjamin also said that the song is "a direct call to heaven through praise."
He officially kicked off as an actor by taking on a role in the movie titled, “Crossroads” in 1995. He has also worked full-time career in modeling and acting for television commercials, and in the print ads industry of Nigeria.
His quest to assert a full presence in the entertainment industry led him to begin venturing into other dimensions, such as in the popular TV show “Deal or No Deal”. All the while, his love for music began to develop.
Until now, the multi-talented actor/singer enjoyed a successful career winning several local and international awards alongside other recognitions.
His musical career took off in 2016 with two singles. "So in Love" expresses his love for God, and "Joy", a song of encouragement and hope. His most recent single "I pour my love on you", the one that's currently making waves across the nation.
Speaking about "I will praise", and the inspiration that brought it along, he said: "I got this song in the heat of the pandemic. I thought about a song that will be a source of encouragement and also a praise to God for what he has done. So when this came, I immediately knew this was it and I also wanted it to be a collaboration.”
Also, he said he wanted to do something a little different from just being specifically Nigerian. He wanted a song that will appeal to not just Nigerians, he is very connected to the Ghanaian Community, my wife is Ghanaian. Nigerians also share almost similar values and sounds in music with Ghanaians. So it just sat right in a good place to make it somewhat of a West African collaboration.
