- Kwaku Gyasi says current gospel artistes lack spiritual content to back their songs
- The musician says he has not identified a single new gospel artiste living up to his standard
Popular Ghanaian gospel musician, Kwaku Gyasi has disclosed that standards have fallen in Ghana gospel industry since current crop of artistes lack spiritual content with their songs.
According to the musician, he has been away from the industry for some time now, but there is no single gospel song in Ghana that has caught his attention.
Speaking to SVTV Africa in an exclusive interview, the renowned musician disclosed that he no longer classifies Gospel musicians as the preachers of the Gospel anymore.
To him, there is no single Ghanaian gospel musician rising to the standard he and his senior colleagues set years ago.
“In my opinion, these gospel musicians don’t sing the gospel to the satisfaction of the soul. Most of them do not have contents and they are also not rising towards the standards we the older musicians have laid down for them,” Kwaku Gyasi stated.
The one time famous musician in his interaction advised new crop of gospel musicians to push to the high standards set for them by their predecessors.
Mr Gyasi who has a number of hit songs to his credit cited that the only Ghanaian gospel musician who has set high standards is Christiana Love, now Obaapa Christy.
Supporting his claims, the elevated singer explained that Christy has gained the credibility and knows how to weave her way through every genre of gospel music.
“When you take her visual aspects, vocal aspects instruments she is so great. I’m not being bias because I have a song with her but she deserves a recommendations,” he added.
