Alogte Oho is one of the most important new voices of Ghanaian gospel. His debut album was released in 2007 and with the release of his third album in 2012, he broke through in his home country. During this first European tour, Alogte Oho brings a slow rocking, grooving journey, deep into the world of Frafra-Gospel.
He was discovered in 2013 by the label founder of Philophon Records, who heard the single ‘Mam Yinne Wa’ during a visit to Ghana and was immediately intrigued by Alogte Oho’s voice. ‘Mam Yinne Wa’ is also the title of Alogte’s first internationally released album on Philophon. As always, Alogte is accompanied his cheerful choir, The Sounds of Joy. Alogte preaches positivity and peace with his Frafra gospel music: a blessing both live and on record.
