Award-winning musician Kuami Eugene, has urged Christians to allow other secular artistes to write songs for gospel musicians.
He says Christians who chastise secular artistes like himself who write songs for gospel artistes are being unfair and are going against what the Bible instructs.
According to him, his songwriting skills were given to him by God and, unfortunately, he gets some level of criticism for using his God-given talent to help other gospel musicians.
He was speaking on Daybreak Hitz with DJ Slim.
‘I think it is a mistake when people complain that this talent that was given to me by God is used to serve God only because I am a secular artiste.’
Kuami Eugene is of the view that given the quest for the Church to win more souls, secular artistes who are blessed with very good songwriting skills should be encouraged to write more gospel songs.
According to him, the likes of Kwabena Kwabena and Akwaboah and himself, are just a few secular artistes who could be involved in such projects.
“I think Christians should embark on a project to make artistes like Kwabena Kwabena and Akwaboah write more gospel songs for our people. Maybe it will compel them to come out with a Gospel album.”
The Lynx Entertainment signee also added that if Christians continue to criticise secular artistes, for writing songs for gospel musicians, it goes contrary to the concept of evangelism.
“If this is the case, if secular artistes try anything gospel-related, they are told to go back to the world, then what is the rationale behind evangelism?”
Kuami Eugene who is currently promoting his latest album ‘Love and Chaos’ recently opened up about his massive involvement in the creative process of Joyce Blessing’s latest single, Victory.
The musician came under some criticism from some gospel-biased individuals on social media. Many of them complained about such songs lacking spirituality.
However, other gospel musicians like Cwesi Oteng and Scott Evans believe it should not be a problem.
