You have seen him in “The Source” for what he’s doing as an artist. You’ve seen him in “Forbes India” for what he is doing as a filmmaker. Some know him as “The Bad Boy of Gospel,” other’s know him as the artist PTtheGospelspitter and some know him as the actor/filmmaker Ashante P.T. Stokes. However you refer to him, he just keeps on riding the blessed wave he is on!
He held the Number One spot on the BDS Internet Gospel Radio chart for sixteen weeks (check). He simultaneously hit the Number One spot on the newly created BDS Internet CHH (Christian Hip Hop) radio charts, etching his name into CHH history (check). He received recognition for achieving the Number One simultaneously on both charts by the Gospel Hip Hop Awards. Now, PTtheGospelspitter’s record “S.f.T.K. (feat Emcee N.I.C.E.)” has topped the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts at NUMBER ONE in South Africa!
It looks like it’s just a wave of blessings all around for PTtheGospelspitter! This amazing new accomplishment comes right after he was inducted into the Seventy- fifth Edition of Who’s Who in America, took home FIVE awards at IMDB affiliated film festivals for his faith-based animated musical film “Praise The Maker” (Check out his actor profile on IMDb as Ashante P.T. Stokes) and also had the soundtrack single “Praise The Maker” hit Number One on the BDS Internet Gospel Radio charts.
PTtheGospelspitter is slated to begin filming his next musical film for his now Number One iTunes single “S.f.T.K.” next month and is also making the film project his very first SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild) production.
Ashante P.T. Stokes aka PTtheGospelSpitter started as a backing vocalist in R&B and Hip Hop and has gone on to become a rising gospel artist.
PT entered the Nashville-based Gospel Music Association’s IMMERSE competition in 2010 and made it through the semifinals using his own original lyrics in his first and only appearance. Upon his return from IMMERSE PT has had the opportunity to work with classical Soprano, Maria Clark as his vocal coach and a series of professional engineers and producers.
Early releases like “Understanding God” and “God is Love” established his appeal to R&B and Gospel fans which helped to make his single and music minifilm “Salvation RMX” an audience choice success. “Praise the Maker”, in addition to being his first Number One single, sparked a successful music minifilm that had a elongated festival screening run due to the pandemic. “Praise the Maker”, the film is on multiple streaming and video on demand services as well as available in PT’s website store. The January 8 2021 release, “SfTK (feat. Emcee N.I.C.E)” is his first collaborative work. The collaboration continues with the music minifilm, “SfTK”.
SfTK is an upcoming music minifilm created by Ashante P.T. Stokes for the streaming service, Christian Cinema. The courtroom comedy-drama is set in the present day. The film is produced by Serving the Peace (Praise the Maker) in association with Visionful Productions. The film should be released later in 2021.
The success of the single, “SfTK (feat. Emcee N.I.C.E.)” has the two artists also planning to release a remix version alongside the release of the minifilm. In fact, the remix could serve as the soundtrack for the minifilm.
