Cwesi Oteng (real name Kwesi Nhyira Oteng) is a young Ghanaian gospel recording artiste, songwriter, youth pastor, creative director, conference speaker and youth advocate who has the calling of bringing God’s message of hope, love, peace, transformation and care to humanity upon him as well as being a voice of assurance for the lonely, rejected, lost and forgotten in society through music and social projects.
Cwesi Oteng’s music reflects his passion, soul and African connection. However, it is the idea to do away with boundaries relating to race, culture, geographic associations and music genres together with the passion to serve his generation and impact positively the world at large that Cwesi has resolved not to limit his gift and music delivery. His music has that unique signature of urban sound with western contemporary elements but importantly fused with strong cross-cultural African rhythms most often either very prominent or subtle in the background over dynamic vocals that are laced with thought-provoking messages very relevant to current times and appealing to both young and old.
Some of the honors received recently include:
*Multiple nominations at the 2011 Africa Gospel Music Awards (including Best Gospel Video & Discovery of the Year),
*Best New Artiste of the Year at the 2011 Ghana Gospel Industry Awards (he had multiple nominations here too)
*'Best Gospel Video' at the 2011 Vodafone-4syte Music Video Awards, Ghana.
*‘Best Lyrics for a Most Wanted Song’ award at the Christian Community’s 2011 Most Wanted Contemporary Gospel Music Awards held in February.

The second official single off the Mercy Project’ album is ‘God Dey Bless Me (Speak Those Things). ‘God Dey Bless Me’, released early 2012, became an instant hit online and is currently receiving heavy rotation on radio all over Africa, in UK and US and breaking grounds onto secular radio and TV shows as well. The video for the hit song has just been released and already rave reviews are pouring in from all over the world tagging it as one of the overall best gospel music videos to have come from Africa.
