Ghanaian urban Gospel singer Call Me Nazareth has made a passionate call to some of Ghana’s top gospel singers, saying ’they are not encouraging upcoming singers compared to their counterparts in the secular music world.’
In the Gospel music industry of Ghana, there are some challenges upcoming gospel musicians face.
Upcoming gospel artistes face many hurdles at the infancy of their careers.
Lack of funding to invest in their music is one challenge and it is also hard for the upcoming gospel artiste to get both print media coverage and airplay on radio as well as television coverage because of the cost.
Call Me Nazareth took to his Instagram handle during the week to appeal to Sonnie Badu and Brother Sammy and other top gospel musicians in Ghana to all help support the upcoming artistes in Ghanaian Gospel industry to enable the upcoming ones also push their brands and music ministry.
According to him, Ghanaian gospel artistes who have made it big are not doing enough to encourage the up and coming singers.
“Let’s support the very good upcoming artistes. Shatta Wale, Stone Buoy, Samini are helping upcoming artistes in their departments in the secular music world. What are we doing as gospel musicians? Once we get the money, we sit on it,” he lamented.

Nazareth Opoku Agyeman, better known as Kojo Denkyem, spent a greater part of his life moving from the streets to the studio in search of a breakthrough in his musical career.
The journey to stardom looked longer than he could measure and success moved farther with every step that he took.
Kojo Denkyem, a Rastafarian, together with his long-time friend could not bear the struggle anymore and opted for a quicker but riskier route in 2009.
Black magic, which in the local parlance is referred to as juju, looked the only viable option for the two who wanted their music to transcend the borders of Ghana.
Kojo Denkyem and his friend booked an appointment with a fetish priest who assured them of success after his incantations.
According to the rapper, on his blind side, his pal had connived with the fetish priest to offer him as a sacrifice for his pal to get money and fame.
Kojo Denkyem took on the stage name Call Me Nazareth after his deliverance from spiritual attacks and ventured into full-time Gospel ministry.
He composes gospel songs and he has started a gospel rap movement called GOSPOP.
