Veteran gospel musician Elder Francis Agyei has disclosed that, members of the gospel music fraternity are now more engaged in competing than serving the “divine purpose” of God in the Ghanaian gospel music industry.
In an Update monitored by GospelEmpireGh.Com, Francis Adjei disclosed in an interview on Peace 104.3FM that, the trend of gospel musicians competing amongst themselves isn’t encouraging since it doesn’t breed success and unity among the artistes.
The “God you’re So Good” Hit maker listed 3 Killers in the Ghanaian Gospel Music Industry sighted by GospelEmpireGh.Com which are listed below:
1. Not Belonging to a Local Church:
According to Francis Agyei, current crop of gospel musicians in Ghana do not belong to any local church, hereby not being disciplined. ‘‘The gospel singer would be cautioned and admonished by the elders of the church if they commit any unspeakable behaviour if they belonged to a church and have submitted under an authority. But lack of commitment to church and to authorities in church makes it hard for them to be disciplined because they are now free lance singer. Tagoe sisters, Stella Dugan, Helena Rhabbles, Rev Yawson, Amy Newman etc belonged to a church and makes them disciplined due to their commitment to church,” he said.
2. Lack of Understanding of Calling
He explained that some Ghanaian gospel musician don’t understand their calling in the gospel music ministry which makes it hard for them to humble themselves. ‘‘Gospel musicians are not admitting that it’s by grace that they minister of the gospel which makes them proud. Many have taken God’s work as a show off but it’s by grace,” he added.
3. Competition among Gospel Artistes
His observation is that some of the current crops of gospel artistes are now competing with each other. He said that, there is no unity among gospel musicians of today to the extent that they want their see their fellow gospel singers’ downfall. He added that there is jealousy, backstabbing, hatred and pride in the gospel music industry.
