Gossip | The Northern Link UG. The year 2020-21 have been marred in the Covid pandemic and as such, many entertainers have had a rather rough time in accomplishing their industry goals. However for Gospel sensation, Chippa YCM, it has been one adventurous ride as he rose to greater heights in his contemporary music style.
In 2020, YCM put out ‘Blessing’ Ft. DJ Poppa and things never stayed the same ever since. The Mvara bred rapper early this year signed a deal with Mike legend films that took over the marketing and distribution of his music and enabled him to put out his first ever album dubbed “Jesus is for everybody”. Chippa admits that he had to face and fight criticism especially from the church audience that wasn’t approving of his lifestyle expressed in music videos but he has been determined to reach out to the everybody, including the streets which explains his maiden album title “Jesus is for everybody”.
Speaking to this media in a recent interview, Chippa says he now looks back with pride because the narrative is slowly changing. To him, a good number of people are starting to respond positively and give him the much needed audience for his music.
Some people used to criticize my music but after listening closely to the message, they are starting to believe that indeed Jesus is for everybody and that includes non-believers because nobody is worthy to judge
Some of the remarkable jams Chippa has put out include; ‘This world’, ‘Ale Ft. Brawta wiggle, Hold on Ft. Freddieline, ‘Merry go round’ Ft. IssaGhad & Hope Wakanda among other jams most of which feature on his “Jesus is for everybody” album.
As the year winds up, Chippa is now looking at hosting his loyal fans to an experience with him dubbed the ‘Plugged in’ concert happening December 30th 2021. He had earlier held a listening party for his album ‘Jesus is for everybody’ in July that was attended by a number of his fans. According to Chippa, this end of year event is a token of appreciation to say ‘Thank you’ to his friends, fans and the entire music fraternity for accepting his work as it is given that his music style has not been popular in this region.
I feel so much indebted to the various industry stake holders like the media, fellow artists, friends and most importantly my fans who have supported me from day one. This is why I am holding an end of year concert in their honor. said an excited YCM.
The said concert slated for 30th December will take place at COCO PALM from 3pm to 8pm. Tickets are available for Ordinary, VIP and tables at 10k, 25k and 150k respectively. Let us all converge and get ‘Plugged in” with YCM.
