Current gospel musicians have misplaced priority— Entertainment critic
Entertainment panelist, NY has decried the decree of which gospel music in the country has turned into an artistry work defeating its intended purpose of ministering to turn hearts to God.
According to him, the current gospel musicians have their focus fixated on artistry delivery, fame and fashion, hence have lost their divine mandate as carriers of the authentic message of God.
Speaking in a Kumasi-based Fm station, Today Radio on Saturday as monitored by Spot On News, NY stated that the current industry had no mission and had made the gospel taken back seat in their music message.
He lamented that the lyrical content of gospel music was not rich, soothing and not holy-spirit-filled thus did not make impacts in the lives of listeners and music lovers as the pacesetters did in their time.
NY noted that there was also misplaced priority in the industry, stressing that many gospel musicians were riding on beef to sell their music.
He said beef was a marketing strategy used by circular musicians to remain relevant in the industry and regretted that the act has gradually meandered its way into the gospel fraternity.
“Lately beef has become a norm among Gospel musicians in Ghana and it should not be tolerated. This is a misplaced priority and they have to desist from the act as soon as possible,” NY added.
In setting the records straight to put gospel musicians back on their toes, he entreated organisers of award institutions, to allocate an “Inspirational and Motivational” category, to award circular artistes, whose songs were spiritually inclined to the neglect of Gospel musicians with misplaced priorities.
