The truth is, music pays but it’s largely dependant on the type of genre. Like in Ghana, secular musicians have dapper pockets comparably to the gospel musicians all other things being equal.
Remember that secular musicians have no limitations in reference to place of performance as compared to gospel musicians who’s supposed to perform at only sacred grounds.
So, it’s not surprising that US-based Ghanaian gospel musician, Esaaba Haizel has posited that gospel music doesn’t pay as compared to other music genres perhaps she wants to consider switching genre.
This is because a viral footage ghbase.com has sighted sees the “Nhyiraba” hitmaker jamming on to Kwabena Kwabena’s “Odo” song. Although we can’t tell if Esaaba Haizel is thinking of switching genre, regardless time will tell. But watching the video and analysing her body language, she felt so deep in love with the song.
However, those in the Gospel fraternity will hope and pray that they won’t lose Esaaba to secular musicians like the great Whitney Houston, and American idol Star; Fantasia, and even our local Rockstar Kuami Eugene – who all started from the house of God before losing their ministerial focus.
Besides, a scan through her Facebook page sees the award winning gospel musician asking her fans the reason why gospel music doesn’t really pay.
