Imitate secular musicians— Sonnie Badu to gospel singers

United Kingdom-based Ghanaian gospel singer, Sonnie Badu has advised gospel musicians to learn from secular artistes to develop the gospel fraternity.

According to him, secular my were offering something unique which has made them excel in the industry.

Sonnie Badu revealed that he was inspired by the versatility and success of Nigerian Afrobeats stars, Burna Boy and Davido as he always learnt from them to replicate the impacts in the gospel industry.

In a recent media interview, the “Baba” hitmaker noted that the two stars had a unique musical style which was demonstrated widely in the global impact of their Afrofusion sound.

“I am inspired by Davido and Burna Boy, I have seen the kind of music they do. I like to learn what they are doing so I can do it in the gospel space. I can’t say I don’t listen to secular music, that would be a lie, I do hear it and I enjoy it. I do listen to secular music to see what I can do better,” he said.

Sonnie Badu then refuted claims by some Christians that listening to secular music weakened the divine spirit in a person.

He stated that he mostly listened to a few other genres aside from gospel music in order to learn and pick cues from it and apply it in his space.

Sonnie Badu also emphasised the importance of drawing inspiration from various genres and artists, even outside the gospel music realm.
