In a bid to draw the youth to Christ, young gospel duo, Royal Priesthood  has adopted rap in their songs and it was no surprise that their maiden album Genesis released in 2012 went down well.

And three years down the line, the duo made up of Judah and Phee has released a number of singles with the latest being Keep Moving.

Keep Moving in addition to the other singles- His Joy, Church Clubbing, Praise Anthem and Sweet Love  will be some of the songs to feature on their second album, New Wine scheduled for release by the end of the year. 

Keep Moving which was recorded by Genius Selection Studios reveals Royal Priesthood as great rappers as they both take turns to rap about God’s goodness to them and the need to move on with determination even when the going gets tough.

Keep Moving, entreats Christians to prevail in the pursuance of their mission to make the Kingdom of Christ attractive to mankind.

According to Royal Priesthood, “Rap music currently appeals to the youth and since we have a message, we devised that means to draw the youth closer to God through our music. 

“Our music is not just limited to Hiphop but we adopt different genre to get many people to like our music especially the youth,” they told Showbiz last Thursday.

They said even though they have not gained much recognition in Ghana, they are excited that their songs are making waves in other countries which has earned them some international awards.

“We won the Best International Gospel Hip-hop Song 2013 at International Gospel Awards held in Italy last year and we have earned five nominations at this year’s awards as well. We hope to ride on such platforms to hit the international stage,” they added.
