Sensational Ghanaian female gospel artiste, Celestine Donkor has stated in an interview that we should blame not the gospel artiste but the heads of churches, pastors and all men of God of being the cause of their, (gospel musicians) inability to produce good gospel songs.
According to her, gospel musicians are influenced and are inspired by what they hear and learn from these men of God but, unfortunately, for them, they don’t hear anything than nonsensical preachings and lies.
“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. 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,” she explained.
“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?” she asked.
