We had a chat with the artiste, to find out what’s the inspiration behind this song. He says the song explains the various obstacles that come with being on the Christian Journey. He believes that he has now reached a level that no matter what, heâ€™s “Never Turning Back”
Since starting his career as a gospel minister last year, Minister Jeffery stated itâ€™s been an awesome experience. Heâ€™s been taught the importance of humility. He says also, doors of opportunity have opened for him, letting room for exposure.
Minister Jeffery has been touring with the Armour International youth fellowship tour. He embraces the experience. Heâ€™s surprised about the reception of the people to the music. â€śthe old young and middle age appreciates and accepts the songs, and some catch on fast, while some know the songs already.â€ť
Based on his personal assessment, he believes his growth as person, is reflected in the songs he has written
Here are Minister Jefferyâ€™s final Words:
â€śNever Give up, no matter how the ministry and your life seems to be going down the drain. Hang to that last thread of hope. Pray, press and persevere in God. Itâ€™s a war and you’re a soldier. Fight to the end because youâ€™re a THUG(True hero Under God)â€ť

Gospel Minister Json is set to release a brand new single â€śNever Give Upâ€ť featured on the â€śKey Change Riddimâ€ť by Remla Productions.
Jason has been working with Remla Productions since 2012, and has released singles such as â€śNuh worry wiâ€ť & â€śFalse Prophetâ€ť, under the label.
Json is a gifted songwriter and sing-jay. We had a chat with him ahead of the release to find out more about his journey as a gospel minister.
Q. whatâ€™s the inspiration behind your song on the keychange?
A. Chronixx has a song that speaks to youths to never give up, and they must try their best as to what they are doing whether school or struggle or hustle. I wanted to encourage Christians that they need not to give up, in the race of striving to be like Christ. For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Q. How has the journey been so far, since you started your career as a gospel minister?
A. well the journey has been for me, one of encouragement as I use the people I minister to as a tool for motivation. Itâ€™s like being a Pastor ,and you go to church you look to the Pastor for delivery of God’s word ,and he must ensure his walk is in-line with Godâ€™s word . I see myself in the same light.
Q.You have been touring with Armour International, how has this been going, any surprises?
A. Well it has been going good thus far, the only surprise I have is the amount of Young Christians that I see that come to the tours possessing a zeal for God that is beyond belief
Q. Has this experience impacted your life in anyway?
For me to say I have not been impacted heavily would be a lie
My final words would be that we continue as Young Christians, to press for the mark which is Christ Jesus.

Remla Productions a reggae gospel record label from Jamaica, releases a summer compilation, â€śMidweek Riddim,â€ť on August 3,2013.
The compilation features Dawit Jeffery, Kerron Gomez, Altimon Ikonn Gordon, Yi, Dajay, Ebony and Holy Spirit Vibration from Guyana. The main theme of the project is the importance of God in your life. Each artist has their spin on the theme.
“The lyrics came at a point in his life that he needed more of God.Â it was very much on my mind where i needed a more profound experience. It was like my heart and soul was crying out then one day I just started singing ‘Hear the cry of my heart hear the cry of my soul hear the cry of my heart God you i want to be hold’, and my verse was basically me saying how i felt at the time, and am wondering if am not doing what am suppose to or is it that my time has not yet come. I was actually reaching out to God. I shared the experience with ebony and we then completed the song.â€ť
Dwaynâ€™e Williams said their song is just a question of the norm
â€śIs just a thing where you question yourself about why people do certain things that they shouldnâ€™t do, that maybe they don’t really want to do, or behave a certain way and you come to the conclusion that maybe they don’t know Christâ€™s love for us or maybe they have forgotten about it .So its just a reminder and we just saying if only you knew about it , things would be different.â€ť
Kerron Gomez :
said the song was a long process and that through hardship we must always be thankful. He recalls his experience,
â€śThe song “Sometimes” has been in progress for over 5yrs,the song started off in 2007,when one morning I got the lyrics to the first verse on my way to school. I never wrote it down but remembered it. Recently I was presented with the mid week riddim and as I began to write the lyrics of the first verse, I decided to be creative and move the lyrics of the first verse to the chorus and use the lyrics that I had written 6 yrs ago as the first verse. Seeking a feature with Daneke Palmer of Jamaica, after she did background vocals on my hit song “my empress”,the song came into being. The general theme of the song is that though sometimes we go through pain and heartache and life may hit hard, through it all, we still lift hands and thank the father for life as it is.â€ť
Overall this compilation has a diverse set of messages towards both christian and non christians. It will have you thinking back to those moments where you were alone with God and saying Thank you Jesus for being there. Even if you are at this place these songs will encourage your heart.
You can purchase this compilation on iTunes.
