A fast rising Club Disc Jockey (Dj) Maxta Prime has expressed dissatisfaction about the manner some female gospel musicians have changed the concept of gospel music.
According to him, current gospel music lack spiritual contents, motivation and the joy that could spark the interest of unbelievers to turn away from their sins to embrace God.
Dj Maxta Prime revealed this in an interview with spotonnews.net in Accra on Saturday.
He observed that female musicians overfilled themselves with makeups and unwholesome fashion that distracted their attention from concentrating on God for direction.
This new trend, the Dj indicated made the playing of such songs on air difficult, stressing that “when DJs are selecting gospel tracks they want the ones that can change the atmosphere and provide inspiration to the listeners.”
Dj Maxta Prime insisted that the country’s gospel industry could not excel if musicians project their personalities rather than the word of God.
He noted that old musicians like Mama Esther, Tagoe Sisters, Daughters Of Glorious Jesus, Hannah Marfo and Cindy Thompson among others were ordained by God to heal the broken hearted through their music and urged the recent ones to learn a cue from them.
“At first, the moment you listen to a gospel song you feel touched and forget your problems. The lyrics was full of encouragement and positively impacted the lives of lost souls as the lyrics were biblical,” the Dj said.
Noise making in gospel tracks, he stated was too much and could not change aggrieved hearts and win souls to God, hence called for change.
Dj Maxta Prime also encouraged managers and promoters of gospel musicians to groom them to meet the expectations of God and not train them to sing for money.
He out cried that most gospel music today is no different from the secular songs and underscored the need for gospel tracks to impacts lives .
