Fast-rising urban gospel musician, Scott Evans, has recounted a period of his life in 2010 when he became a born-again Christian through a friend.
It was a rare, yet unexpected encounter he had with one gentleman that changed his entire journey with Christ after he joined his father at one International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) branch in Accra.
“He introduced me to Jesus, he led me to Christ, and I became born-again. I remember one time when I was in school, he told me to meditate on the word of God day and night, and asked me to be consistent on it,” Scott said.
In an interview with Fifi Folson on Joy FM’s The Reason is Jesus, Sunday, the musician stated that he devoted time read a chapter of the Bible every day, under the influence of his new friend.
Throughout his secondary education, Scott read chapters of the New Testament from Matthew to Revelation, the last book and that, he said, reflects in the kind of songs he writes and produces.
“My dad loves to go to church early so I went to sit in front of a very large auditorium but less than 20 people. I was standing in front when one gentleman walked in to tell me that place was for the old people so I should join the youth church – he walked me out from the main church to the youth church.
“The youth church was under a canopy at the entrance of the church. He said what you could do is that every day when you’re going to school, just pick one chapter from the Bible and read. When you read, make sure you understand that chapter and pick a verse, and meditate on that verse,” he added.
Scott Evans was nominated in the Best New Artiste of the Year as well as the Best Gospel Song categories for the 2022 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
