President of Music Council of Ghana (MCG,) Ekow Micah, has stated
categorically that many of the gospel musicians are only in for money.

He went on to describe them as “dead in spirit,” explaining that this
was because many of them do not know what gospel music was all about.”

The president of MCG made the statement whilst contributing on 2
Degrees, an entertainment show on Pink FM in Kasoa in the Central
region, at the weekend.

According to him, many of the Ghanaian gospel musicians fall short of
“good vision” noting that that they are unable to tell the exact meaning
of the gospel.

In his opinion, the word gospel denotes The Good News, which is all about Jesus Christ and the word of God.

He added that many gospel musicians also script songs which are not in no line with the Good News [the word of God].

“Most of the songs written by more than half of gospel musicians in the
country are songs which are either talking about acquisition of wealth
or receiving God’s blessings, adding that these songs lack the Good News
which teaches us how to lead a good life in attaining eternal
salvation,” he noted.

Mr. Micah also lamented the dress code of some of these “so-called” gospel musicians.

He opined that many of the gospel musicians were no different from
pastors preaching the word of God, adding that they must dress well any
time they come into the public eye and also in their private life.

“They [gospel artistes] forget they are empty vessels being used by God
to preach His word. These musicians are only after money and do not
care as to how they get it. It can clearly be seen in their way of
dressing, from their clothes to their shoes and the wigs they put on
their head,” Mr. Micah said.

In this regard, he warned gospel musicians to refrain from such practice.
