There is no need to say all sorts of things to dampen their spirits. I often come across less-than-positive comments about gospel musicians when issues arise, these comments can be quite disheartening.

The 'Hyebre Sesafo' hitmaker used the opportunity to counsel her fellow gospel artistes. She encouraged them to recognise their worth and advised them to demand fair compensation comparable to that of the secular artistes who reportedly secure more lucrative deals with event organisers.

I always emphasize that placing value on oneself ensures that event organizers acknowledge your worth and compensate you appropriately for performances. With over 20 years of experience, I don't settle for just any amount; I am paid what I deserve because I know my value," she stated.
