Ghana is about to witness yet another promising sister-act on the gospel music scene this year. The group will trail the glorious footsteps of the likes of Togoe Sisters, Suzy & Matt, Jane and Bernice, among others, who were hits in the past.
Twin sisters; Lucell Mends and Louisa Mends, who prefer to be known as Sarafins, are the newest kids on the bloc this year.
Their 10-track album, titled ‘Yere Twenwo’, is likely to hit the market by November/December. Currently, the duo’s three- track promo CD is gradually getting airplay on some radio stations.
Their video is also making headway on the screens. Songs on the yet-to-be-released album have fusions of R&B and highlife rhythms. This is backed by the sisters’ soothing voices, which gives a clear indication of a hit album in the making.
The songs are not only inspirational, but have a good tone for praise and worship. Among them were ‘Odaseni’, ‘Mensuro Hwee’, ‘Oye Onyame’, ‘Meyiwa ye’, I have Made my Mind, and the title track ‘Yere Twenwo’, among others.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with BEATWAVES, the Sarafins said their music career started off in church. They always graced the stage of the Fountain Gate Chapel where they fellowship.
The shy-looking sisters however said they decided go beyond the church into the public domain to use their music to win souls for Christ.
The 26-year-old sisters, who hail from Cape Coast, grew up in Accra. They had their basic education at Achimota, after which they proceeded to Social Advance High School at Adabraka. After their secondary school education, they took up singing.
It sisters feel it is time for them to make their musical inspirations felt on the music scene. The group hopes their maiden album will break barriers as albums of their predecessors did in the past.
