“In an interview with the ace gospel musician Jenny C via the phone, she said that even though she always do English songs, she realized that it will be good if she comes back to her mother land Ghana to give out what God has put in her. “I was having these plans in mind but how? So when I heard that my brother Kobby Ray wrote a song for Ghanaian artiste Gifty Osei, I called him to write one in Twi for me to sing, and he did. Kobby has really shown me that he is truly a talented song writer” she stated.
The 12 track album has hit songs like, "Holy Ground", Mokobe featuring Lady Prempeh, "Momma Menka", "Wose Ayeyi", "Keep and "Moving" which is a song dedicated for the Black Stars of Ghana and others. “Holy Ground is my favorite because it is a song that came when I was praying with some elders of my church. “Nyame Ben Ni” also talks much about my life” Jenny C confessed.
Jenny C has performed in countries like Italy, Germany, Holland and France but lives with her two handsome children, Kelvin Chonia (14yrs) and Emmanuel Chonia (10yrs).

She then joined the Universal Choir of Zurich (UCF) where she led the group singing their title track on their debut album “Praise Him Everyday”.
According to her, she liked Lady Prempeh so much after meeting her on the same stage when she came to Ghana on Sound Splash on (TV Africa.) “My spirit and her spirit clicked when we met for the first time so I decided to collaborate with her on the track “Mokobe,” in fact she is a nice person” she said.
When this reporter met Jenny C's, Producer Kobby Ray, one of the best gospel song writers he said, "As you know, producing and promoting an album in Ghana is not a mere thing but we are trying our best to pave way for the song. Thank God the content of the song is rich so people are patronizing the album".
"There are shortages of the album in Kumasi as I am talking to you after sending 7000 copies there. We are now printing some in addition and they will be ready after this week. Working with my sister Jenny C is a wonderful thing and I thank God that the song has started making impact in the lives of people. In fact, the DJs are doing well by playing the song every now and then, God Bless them” Kobby Ray stated. For more info visit www.jennycgospel.com.
