It is presumed and almost established that gospel musicians are only doing the work of the creator hence there is no need for them to be given money for propagating the gospel. Well, gospel musician Celestine Donkor says enough of that already.
According to the wife and mother of three, they are just like any other musicians and deserve to be paid for their hard work because the thank you’s would not help them in their respective careers.
“The sad part is that the secular artistes are not treated the same, so why does it happen to Gospel musicians? I have been on several shows with secular musicians who were paid so well but I got nothing. This thing has to stop.”
“A lot of people have the perception that once you do Gospel, it is God’s work and you shouldn’t take money for a performance. How do we record or shoot music videos if we don’t make money from our hard work?
“Gospel musicians should come together and with one voice fight this problem which is gradually killing the gospel industry,” she added.
