While Mother’s Day has been celebrated with ‘pomp and pageantry’ every year, same cannot be said of Father’s Day. The day to honour Dads has been rather low key all the time.
So to help fathers feel much appreciated too, Takoradi-based Gospel artiste, Lizz Kwabi heralds this year’s Father Day which falls on Sunday, June 18 with the release of her lastest song Grateful.
Her Grateful gift is an appreciation to fathers for their irreplaceable roles they play in the world.
Speaking with Showbiz on Monday, the Yesu Begye Wo singer said fatherhood is an “irreplaceable gift” but for the few bad nuts, the status has been underrated.

“My father has been a strong pillar in my success in life. I wouldn’t know where I would have been without his nurturing and support so my latest song is to bring the attention of the world to divine roles our fathers play,” she said.
A simple message to praise the works of fathers, Grateful, which was produced by Chris Boatz extols the virtues of fathers and Lizz Kwabi sings about how the world would have been lost without their direction.
She goes on to sing the tributes of prominent politicians and religious leaders whose counsel helped to achieve peaceful elections last year.
The Okyeso Nyame artiste used the medium to entreat aggrieved persons to mend their bitter relationships with their fathers as fathers’ day approaches.
“It’s quite hurting when your father doesn’t live up to my expectation but truthfully, it’s unnecessary to pay him back. Yours is to play your role well as the child and let posterity be the judge,” She said.
Currently, Lizz is promoting her nine track Grateful album which she released earlier this year.
Songs on the album include True Love, He Paid it, Okyeso Nyame, Worship Medley, and Makokyem, I lift Your Name High and Faithfulness
