I brought relevance to the Ghanaian gospel industry financially – Cwesi Oteng

In an interview with Afia Coke that aired on TV XYZ's Xzone, well-known gospel musician Cwesi Oteng recently talked about his crucial role in raising financial standards in the gospel music industry.

The singer behind the hit song "God Wey Dey Bless Me" says that he made a big change by becoming the first gospel musician in Ghana to charge 15 Ghana cedis for concerts and to charge 50 cedis for tickets to his events.

Oteng talks about his groundbreaking initiative to pay Danny Nettey 600 Ghc, which set a new standard for industry compensation, in his reflections on the early 2000s.

Cwesi Oteng discusses his early adoption of a 50 cedis ticket fee and a 15 cedis charge for gospel music performances, highlighting his role as a pioneer.

Moreover, he professes to be the main craftsman to give monetary remuneration going from 200 to 300 cedis to individual gospel artistes, a training that was remarkable during that time.
