Renowned gospel musician, Ohemaa Mercy, has advised fellow musicians and upcoming and coming gospel artistes to stop pursing financial gains in the name of doing gospel music.
Ohemaa Mercy also said there is the need for her colleague gospel artistes to stop seeing the gospel industry as a lucrative business venture.
Rather, she said they must be conscious of the work they have to do, focus on God to help them project the words of the bible to others through their gospel music.
In an interview on Joy FM, Ohemaa Mercy described the situation as a big problem.
She said: "It's a big problem that some people are actually in this [gospel] work because of money, which is very bad.”
“This happens when they want to listen to man’s voice and not God’s,” Ohemaa Mercy said.
She added that it would be better if people always listen to God and be conscious about the gospel music work than focus on money.
The ‘Aseda’ hit maker further advised her colleagues to be wary of the friends they associate with.
She also believes that when God is made the centre of everything, the blessings will be abundant for gospel singers and they wouldn’t toil for the wealth that comes with being blessed.
