A lot of reasons have been assigned for why the Gospel music industry does not seem to be as vibrant as it used to be.
While some stakeholders, such as the artistes, have claimed that disunity is to blame, others think it is a general music industry problem.
However, for one of the artistes in the sector, Piesie Esther, the problem is spiritual. According to her, the industry is going down because they (musicians) have lost the glory of God.
“When the favour or glory of God is not on you anymore, things do not go well for you. That is really our problem now, our actions and deeds have fallen short of the glory of God.”
“Many of us think we have arrived; the moment God raised us up, we thought we had made it and decided to do things our way but God does not work like that.
“He brought you to where you think you have gotten to so he has the right to take you back when you are not doing what you are supposed to do.
“Doing Gospel is not all about singing, you need to change lives and if you are not doing that, why should the Master keep you in business? That is why we are suffering today,” she told Showbiz recently.
Piesie Esther said their predecessors used their gift well and laid a good foundation but they, the new crop of Gospel artistes had deviated from that.
“Those who came before us did so well in laying the foundation for us to continue. This is not to say that they did not have their issues, they did but they were not as much as we are seeing today.
“Today, the only thing we know as Gospel artistes is to flaunt our wealth and get involved in all kinds of scandals just to make the news.
