Ghanaian artiste manager, Kwasi Ernest has stated that Gospel musicians in the country do not have a united front.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Media Excel made this statement on Peace FM’s ‘Entertainment Review’ program.
“I see that what the gospel people need now is a front. Gospel music in Ghana, as we speak, doesn’t have a front. They don’t have that united front; a front they could use to push their agenda to yield benefits and which for me, it’s a major issue,” he said.
Mr Ernest also lamented over the attitudes of many Gospel musicians in the country.
“There are so many professionals in the music industry but the reason why most of these gospel artistes cannot utilize is because they find it difficult removing money and paying them . . . a lot of our people, they don’t want to pay . . . it’s a brand and when it goes well, it goes well for you . . . even when it comes to video shoot and others, it is for most of them to sacrifice money for it to be successful for them,” he stated.
The Media Excel owner further called for a major reform in the Ghanaian Gospel music industry.
