‘Doing of the Lord’ saved me from being raped – Diana Hamilton shares inspiration for new song

Award-winning Gospel Musician, Diana Hamilton has shared fond memories of how an incident which occurred during her secondary school days in Ghana National College inspired her new song ‘The Doing of the Lord’.

The latest song released on Monday, January 15 features Nigerian Gospel Musician Mercy Chinwo.

Speaking in an interview on ‘New Day‘, Tuesday, the ‘Adom’ hitmaker recalled how her school mother back in secondary school lured her when she was a fresher into the hands of her seniors who nearly raped her.

“I went to Ghana National and it was an interco and a sixth former literally sold me out to some big boys and it took the hand of God not to have been raped and I look at that and it was the doing of the Lord which snatched me out of there and I was that close.”

The 2021 VGMA Artiste of the Year winner narrated how she miraculously found herself on the streets of Kotokraba- Cape Coast after she had been carried away by her seniors.

“We went for interco and I was in first year and then my school mother then said follow these guys, they are going to get me some biscuit and give it to you and you will bring it to me.

“As a fresher, I followed them by the time I realised one was in front of me and another behind me and I was in the middle then one opened the door and there was another girl so I thought it was two ladies and two boys going somewhere.

“The next thing I saw was the one in front opened the door to a car sat in and the one behind me urged me to sit and I sat and the other guy also sat in, the next thing I heard was the other girl said ‘ɛneɛ mo mbaabai ooo’ [then goodbye], she left.”

She continued, “By the time I realised I was in Cape Coast-Kotokraba in a funny area. It took God to give an SS1 girl the courage to tell upper sixth formers I will not enter this house,” she told Naa Ashorkor on ‘New Day’.

According to her, her school mother urged her not to report to any authority after she told her about the incident.

Diana Hamilton, for this reason, ascribes her favourite verse in the bible to “The Lord is my Shepherd”.

The music video for the song currently has 259,000 views on YouTube a day after it was uploaded on the platform.
