Veteran Ghanaian gospel musician, Professor Kofi Abraham, has expressed worry about the current trend of gospel music.
According to Prof Abraham, most Ghanaian gospel songs are of no value but rather characterized by a lot of ‘noise’.
Speaking on Accra-based Hitz FM, as monitored by Ghpage.com, the gospel legend revealed that gospel must carry some spiritual powers to be able to transform lives and make positive impacts on society.
However, many modern day gospel singers are ‘spiritually empty’, and rather make many their main focus when recording songs.
To him, he is not surprised many gospel singers are churning out and producing ‘noise’ instead of spirit-filled songs to touch human lives in order to win souls for God..
“Some of modern gospel artistes wail and shout in their songs in a bid to get people’s attention, rather than listen to advice given them by people like me; the reason for touching people’s souls with songs,” Prof Abraham lamented.
He further noted that it is important for gospel artistes to be guided and rooted in the word of God and back their music with the spirit of God.
The works of many Ghanaian gospel singers have come up for debate with many expressing little hope for the future.
Some industry critics have categorically stated that they would prefer listening to dancehall artistes rather than ‘wasting’ their time on some Ghanaian gospel music.
