The Undeniable Effect of Team Eternity’s “Defe Defe”

From another perspective, "Defe Defe" has established the standard for streaming Ghanaian music in general, demonstrating that people are willing to devote time and money to streaming good and substantial music that is sonically pleasing to the human ear. 

Ghanaian Gospel music group, Team Eternity, assumed the Number one spot on Apple Music’s top 100 charts in Ghana last Tuesday, May 7, 2024, after Ghanaians caught wind of the group’s “Defe Defe” track.

“Defe Defe” sang and performed by Team Eternity is a single off the group’s 14 track album dubbed “Testimony.”  As of May 9, 2024, 13 songs on the album including  “Ghana Chant”, “Brass Band Medley”,  “Jehova Over Do” with Nigerian singer Eben, “Miracle Working God”, “Tribute”, “Testimony” and “W’asem secured spots on the Apple Music top 100 chart in Ghana.

“Defe Defe” was the main track that propelled the “Testimony” album to the top of the charts, a feat that is uncommon in Ghana’s gospel music landscape.  The song generated a lot of buzz on social media, with netizens praising the song’s live instrumentals/tempo, contemporary vibe, and the group’s refreshing voice, which Ghanian Gospel music fans have been yearning for. 

The quality production and soulful content of the song resonated well with listeners. It evoked nostalgic memories of Ghanaian gospel music groups such as Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Tagoe Sisters, and the dynamic Soul Winners. It is safe to say that Team Eternity delivered a solid masterpiece with “Defe Defe” by taking a different approach than the typical Ghanaian Gospel musicians, who are notorious for revamping old songs to a more personal rendition.

In a country where the songs that heavily top the charts are rap, highlife, Afrobeats and other pop-infused genres, “Defe Defe’s” organic streaming achievement should be recognised because it is the first time a Ghanaian gospel group has topped the Apple Music chart across multiple genres.  

Additionally, the song needs to be widely promoted to secure spots on foreign music charts as well as neighbouring countries including Nigeria, whose gospel musicians always find themselves securing spots on the Ghanaian Apple Music charts from time to time. The promotion will also attract attention and encourage event promoters to invest in gospel music in Ghana.

From another perspective, “Defe Defe” has established the standard for streaming Ghanaian music in general, demonstrating that people are willing to devote time and money to streaming good and substantial music that is sonically pleasing to the human ear.  Most “secular musicians” whose songs do not top the charts will blame other musicians for using the services of the alleged “streaming farm” to boost songs to the top spot on the charts.

These musicians forget that a song that has substance and beautiful productions will automatically grab the attention of listeners no matter the genre or the theme. If the song is good enough it will secure the highest spot on the chart.

Team Eternity’s “Defe Defe” has a huge replay value because the song’s composition, tone, and chorus will keep you hooked and eager to stream more from Team Eternity. The buzz is still ongoing on social media as people are currently discovering more songs from the collective.

Team Eternity is a contemporary gospel group made up of singers who are committed to spreading Christian messages through worship and upbeat praise songs. The “Testimony” album which is available for streaming on all music streaming platforms follows after the group released their first album “Sounds of Eternity” in 2022. The 10-track album consists of worship songs and medleys.
