Upcoming Ghanaian gospel sensation, Akesse Brempong says the genre needs more attention.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
According to him, contemporary gospel music is the best way to market Ghanaian gospel music to the rest of the world.
In an interview on Class FM and monitored by YEN.com.gh, Akesse Brempong said though there is a shift in the music landscape and gospel music is getting some attention, there is a lot more that can be done.
“It didn’t use to be like that. We didn’t use to pay much attention to gospel music, but now gospel music is getting some form of attention. Even in the gospel music circles, there’s a shift going on. It used to be traditional gospel, now there’s some light shed on contemporary gospel,” the 'Roar' hitmaker stated.
He disclosed that the best way to export Ghanaian gospel music to the rest of the world is by using contemporary gospel.
“And, so, one of the things I believe is that contemporary gospel is that kind of movement that will export the Ghanaian gospel music, so, I believe that some attention needs to be paid to gospel music. Look at the legends of gospel music that we have in the country and juxtapose them to the attention we pay gospel music, I think it’s small. Gospel music needs more attention,” he said.
