Why I changed my name- Eric Jeshrun explains
One of the country’s amazing gospel musicians, Eric Jeshrun, has explained the rationale behind the change of his name.
The ‘Yahweh Victory chant’ hit maker was formerly known as Jeshrun Okyere.
Speaking to The Spectator, he revealed that the official name on his passport is Eric Jeshrun Okyere, adding that most people know him from childhood as Eric, and that prior to his rise to fame, he was widely known as “Eric Jeshrun”.
Against this background, he decided to merge the two names (Eric and Jeshrun) and drop the Okyere.
Jeshrun further added that, he had received countless feedbacks over challenges encountered by people who try to search for his videos and other songs online.
This, coupled with other brand positioning vision, was the need to address the feedback.
Jeshrun is also the convener of one of Ghana’s biggest worship gatherings: “August Worship”, which has featured many local and African acts like Nathaniel Bassey, Preye Odede , Joe Mettle , Joe Beecham , Victoria Orenze etc.
His music and concerts has won several awards and nominations at the African Gospel Music Awards UK, VGMAs, Ghana Music Awards UK among others
