Ghanaian Gospel singer, Obaapa Christy, has raised a concern about the rate at which Gospel artistes in the country are criticised.

She stated in an interview with Graphic Showbiz which Newshuntermag.com came across that Gospel artistes are not angels.

As humans, Christy said they will surely make mistakes—so their critics should calm down with the criticisms.

“There is no need saying all sorts of things to dampen their spirits. I sometimes hear not too good comments about gospel musicians when their issues come up and they can be very disheartening.

“Inasmuch as we are gospel musicians, we are mere mortals and we are bound to make mistakes too. Some media persons and Ghanaians dwell on the negatives instead of focusing on the positives. What is the point in rejoicing over someone’s downfall?” she said.

The ‘Hyebre Sesafo’ singer further urged her colleagues to place a value on themselves.

“I always say that when you place value on yourself, no event organiser will pay you whatever they want but rather give what is due you when you are hired to perform. I have done this for over 20 years for anyone to just pay me any amount. I am paid what I am due and that is because I am worth it.”

Obaapa Christy has released a new song ‘Ebesesa’ today, February 1, 2024.

Talking about the song, she said: “We are in hard times and people are going through a lot. After COVID-19, a lot has changed and most people are not having it easy at all. This song which is accompanied by a video shot by Skyweb in Ghana gives hope to the hopeless. The lyrics are encouraging to make you know God is with you and will change your situation for you.”
