He believes the reason for the unfortunate setback is managerial focus on the part of the investors, which may not have aligned well with his brand.

“In terms of what companies want, maybe brand association or value, we have the numbers for it but they aren’t coming. Companies belong to people and they make the decision based on what they want, but I think it’s unfair.”

However, he said that per his observation, many investors are more eager to sponsor secular musicians than gospel musicians. He noted that he has a huge following on social media and that should not limit his chances of receiving ambassadorial deals.
