Veteran Gospel musician Grace Ashly who has been missing from the music scene for a while now has disclosed that contrary to what many people believe, secular artists are not from the devil.
Speaking in a recent interview on Adom FM’s work and happiness, Grace Ashly explained that she still has a good relationship with secular musicians because she believes their choice to do secular music doesn’t make them evil and they must be treated with equal respect.
“We are working under one umbrella just that our ways differ a little. Depending on where one feels comfortable in his or her career, he or she can either choose to do gospel or secular music,” she stated.
Grace continued that, “Apart from that, I see no difference between artists doing the two genres so when we meet each other, we act warmly towards each other because we are one people. I always want people to understand that these two genres are the same and the secular acts are not of the devil after all that is their work.
She added that not everyone has the gift to do gospel music as such some people may be successful from doing secular music than gospel music.
“Someone may not be successful when he or she does gospel music but will be successful when they do secular music. So we are of good terms with these secular acts. They sing our songs and we sing theirs too,”
In her final Submission, she advised those in the music industry to stop being selfish and help each other grow.
“So it’s even bigger than music. It’s about the things we do as human beings. Being a secular artiste, all we cared about was money and fame. And this selfish behaviour is something I would never want to go back to’,”.
