Popular radio and television relationship counselor, Reverend George Lutterodt has waded into yet another controversy with his assessment of artistes in Ghana's gospel music industry.
He has bluntly described some leading gospel musicians as 'useless' and just adding up to the numbers.
Speaking in interview, he stated without mincing words, that artistes like Cwesi Oteng, SP Kofi Sarpong, and many others were just adding up to the numbers and were not relevant in the industry.
For him, while Cwesi Oteng is a copycat who cannot produce original songs, SP Kofi Sarpong and others like Nicholas Omane Acheampong were just there to make the numbers.
Referring to highlife star, Kwabena Kwabena’s ‘Bue Kwan' hit, Counselor Lutterodt pointed out that many of the gospel artistes lack such lyrical content.
“Kwabena Kwabena’s song is one of the best gospel songs ever composed here in Ghana. I don’t know why he did not win Gospel Artiste of the Year in 2013. Those who are winning Gospel songs of this time don’t even have proper lyrical content,” he told Lexis Bill of Joy FM's Drive Time.
