A Weekend Of Activities To Commemorate Gospel Legend Helena Rhabbles At 60.

Veteran Gospel Musician Helena Rhabbles turned 60 On Friday November 26, 2021.

There were various activities over the weekend to celebrate this milestone in the life of the legend.

It started with a breakfast meeting on Friday, her birthday with prominent personalities, colleague Gospel Musicians and others in attendance. This included founder of Perez Chapel, Bishop Charles Agyin Asare, Cindy Thompson, Empress Gifty Adorye and other personalities.

This was followed with a dinner on Saturday where there were performances from Tagoe Sisters, Mary Ghansah, Bernice Ansah and other greats in attendance.

On Sunday, which happens to be yesterday, everything was crowned with the Gratitude Experience which took place at the Believers of Fire Ministries and had fellow gospel greats on the bill.

Born Helena Esi Mends in Egyia, a small town near Saltpond, in the Central Region of Ghana on November 26 in 1961, she lived in Sekondi Takoradi in her formative years.

She attended Tarkwa Secondary between 1975 and 1981 and proceeded to Wesley College from 1981 to 1984 where she trained as a teacher. She taught for almost 11 years and left for full time gospel Ministry in 1995.

The "Ye wo Oman" hitmaker came out with her debut album in 1994 which became an instant hit. Her songs became the toast of worship and praise singers in churches. She had songs in broken English and coupled with her name, many thought she was Nigerian but she is Fante.

Some of her other songs are "Kokromoti", "Onibi adamfo pa", "Satan don fall fall ground", "Shey shey baba oluwa", "Heaven came down", "Makoma ahye ma" and many other songs.

Auntie Helena relocated to America and whiles there, performed on various platforms and churches in various states across the USA, hence was missing in action here in Ghana. After over two decades abroad, she is back home and actively pursuing her music ministry and foundation, impacting lives and mentoring the younger generation.

She was married to Mr. Charles Joojo Rhabbles but they are divorced. The union was blessed with three children.

Congratulations to Helena Rhabbles for this milestone and all her exploits and contribution to the ministry of the gospel through her music.
