Some gospel musicians are not committed Christians – Pastor Kay

Pastor Kayode, head pastor of the Awakeners

Chapel International located at Ablekuma in

Accra, has stated that some gospel artistes in the

industry are not committed Christians.

Speaking to BEATWAVES in an interview

yesterday, the man of God stressed that to do

gospel music was a calling and that every gospel

musician must have Christ as his or her

foundation and also study the Bible to guide

them in their day-to-day activities.

Pastor Kayode noted, "Gospel musicians are

supposed to be soul winners for Christ.

Everything we do must be in the name of the

Lord Jesus Christ and we must do it, being

grateful and showing gratitude to him through

our songs."

The Nigerian-born Ghana-based pastor during

the interview stated that gospel music is

supposed to inspire and motivate Christians and

non-Christians alike in their daily lives so that

they could experience the love of God, "but

today, most of the gospel music or songs do not

inspire and motivate the people because they

lack good messages and the blessings of God."

The enterprising gospel singer also disclosed that

the gospel music industry in Ghana had seen a

number of enterprising gospel musicians "whose

presence in the gospel music scene have

changed the lives of many people."

He also claimed that most gospel musicians

today have rather diverted their attention to

making money at the expense of saving souls for


"Our gospel artistes do not even research and

study the word of God before going to the

studios to record their albums and their songs

are failing to comfort the broken hearted in the

society," he lamented.
