Ghanaians Are Gradually Losing Interest In Gospel Music – A.F Benjamin
Budding gospel musician, AF Benjamin talks about gospel music in Ghana. Moreover, he believes strongly that Ghanaians are gradually losing interest in gospel music.
The singer attributed several reasons for his belief
Furthermore, according to him, gospel musicians lack passion and don’t wait on God for direction. Also, there is little investment of time and resources, poor quality of production and lack of appropriate platforms. Moreover, these ingredients are a necessity for gospel musicians to thrive and grow
He explained in a press release that,
“The time invested in production lately is little, look at the kind of songs we produce, see a song like “Borborliborbor”. The production is not the best. Most artists now don’t even go for waiting to hear from the Lord, they do as they wish leaving God behind.”
“We as gospel people lack the needed platforms as well. How many gospel centred shows do we have in this country. We need to sit up, cross our T’s and dot our I’s so we can propel the gospel to the ends of the earth.”
However, he expressed optimism about the future of gospel music in Ghana. This is because even though there are challenges, the industry has grown tremendously over the years and still has more room to cover.
