According to gospel musician Celestine Donkor, no other person except pastors should be blamed for the poor songs gospel musicians make these days. She says the word they preach in recent times is nothing to write home about.
She said; “The teachings from our pastors influence our lyrical content and it’s unfortunate that these days, what we hear from our men of God is nothing to write home about. If your leader is leading you astray, you obviously don’t expect any good result from the followers.”
“We are polluted with all sorts of preaching, if it is not about getting rich, it’s about having a husband or wife or travelling abroad to make money. With such sermons in our ears all the time, what do Ghanaians expect from the gospel musicians who see the men of God as their mentors?
“Some of the words from our men of God don’t inspire the congregation who attend their churches and it affects or influences the songs by gospel musicians.?
