kudos guys. My reaction is partly motivated by Shakespeare's strong statement: "Fear him whom music does not move". I read with delight your coming of age. I am glad you made it at last. I personally know where you are coming from, so would readily agree with Consty that the path has been rough-that is also what makes you thick. Afterall, didn't Niccolo (di Bernardo) Machiavelli (1469-1527) say "the end justifies the means". In this case, I refer to your struggles and eventual production of your pioneer album. I am happy you have come out with something that will remind us of God-where we (humans) are going to, even if we don't know where we are coming or came from. The power of Gospel music can not be over emphasised. Didn't David use the harp in the Bible to drive an evil spirit "from God" sent to torment King Saul? This is where I want to situate the Forgates. That your maiden (quite symbolic) album comes out now is not an error. It should be dedicated to drive out the poisonous "evil spirit" of unemployment, AIDS, criminality, tribalism, etc, as through music you echo God's powerful and redeeming message of "be your brother's keeper". Your Rev. PRO would agree that God is JEHOVAH-EL ROI "God of Seeing" Hagar in Gen. 16:13. Guys, it is your contribution to the moral battle which our country has embarked on during this period of its rejuvenation (I hope) and God is seeing.

I don't limit your gospel message to Cameroon alone; Europe, perhaps desperately needs it most at a time when its empty Church buildings are being bought by individuals as summer houses and clubs. Can you imagine!!

One last thing: I am glad you are not caught in the trap of "eat to live or live to eat" as you sound quite clear that you don't sing for money as opposed to "money for sing" or whatever. I hope you get the picture. Gospel and money don't seem to marry or couple well. Don't they? At least other "Gospel groups" that started like you or Judas of old can help us answer this.

I wish and hope the goods be delivered and received in very good condition. Cheers, as with repentant hearts and minds, we (humans) consume the long awaited redemptive tracks of our "Foregates".

Wow!It's really touching to read an article about the foregates.I knew foregates about 5yrs ago and was even part of the family when I was in UB.I'm so proud of them and the hard work they put in music.All I want to say is well done Cyril,Consti,Roy,Jude,Nkemnzi and the last member(sorry I can't remember the name).Keep on dreaming boys because your dreams will definitely come through. The sky is your limit.
