Seeing gospel musicians as flawless angels is unrealistic – Obaapa Christy

Ghanaian gospel vocalist Christiana Twene, broadly recognized as Obaapa Christy, is encouraging Ghanaians to stretch out supplications and backing to gospel artists rather than unnecessarily reprimanding them when they commit errors.

During an exclusive interview with Graphic Showbiz on Monday, January 29, 2024, the music icon highlighted that regardless of passing the expression of God on through music, gospel specialists are not excluded from human weaknesses and are defenseless to blunders, very much like any other individual.

"Naming gospel performers as perfect holy messengers is ridiculous. We all make mistakes because we are human. “It is not constructive to criticize them excessively when they make mistakes,” Obaapa Christy stated.

She expressed her dissatisfaction with the numerous negative remarks about challenges faced by gospel musicians, which she viewed as discouraging and counterproductive.

Obaapa Christy supported both the media and people in general to underline the positive parts of gospel music as opposed to harping on the hardships of craftsmen.

The "Hyebre Sesafo" hitmaker discussed issues of industry recognition and compensation, highlighting the significance of gospel musicians valuing themselves and advocating for fair compensation comparable to that of secular musicians.

"I've been in this industry for north of 20 years, and I solidly accept that when we perceive our own value, occasion coordinators will offer us enough compensation. It's basic that we are paid what we are worth," Obaapa Christy stated.

She asked individual artists to focus on their self-esteem and take part in additional powerful exchanges with occasion coordinators. Obaapa Christy emphasized how important it is for gospel musicians to be compensated fairly for their skills and hard work.
