Ghanaian gospel musician, Empress Gifty, has revealed the motive behind why she rolls with the secular artists more than her colleague Gospel musicians.
According to her, Ghanaian gospel artists are the most hypocrites in the entertainment industry citing that the behaviour of some of her colleagues are so demeaning and it puts her off.
She revealed that some gospel musicians behave as if they are the only humans that have access to blessings from God and will be the only people that will go to heaven when the rapture comes.
It is as a result of this mentality that has pushed these gospel musicians to disassociate themselves from secular artists which she sees as hypocrisy.
Gifty Adorye disclosed in an interview on Xzone show on TV XYZ that she has developed a relationship with secular artists and is more friendly towards them than most gospel artists.
“I’m being honest, I’m very close to secular artists than my colleagues. Yes. Shatta, Sarkodie, like I’m cool with them. We are close because I think I’m too real and I don’t fake. I won’t meet them and start praying in tongues I’m not the one to tell them they don’t leave in good structures no.”
“This world we live in, no one is holy. We don’t have any righteous person so stop defining yourself as Spirit-filled, Holy Ghost, forget about that thing, we dealing with the heart. The person I might be judging may have a clean heart than me so I love them regardless.”
“Why is it that the gospel industry we are not making it more than them but we play more live bands than them but they receive more money than us because we are hypocrites”
The wife of the former MP disclosed that she will have no problem featuring secular artists because she knows they are humans and moreover, she has recorded a couple of songs with some of them.
“Oh this not the first time, I’ve done it before I did with Dadie Opanka on abubro nkosuo, I won’t sit here and say anything for someone to say I’m lying. I believe in music I believe in words, everytime I say it’s the mind and what you think of the person makes everything a sin or truth. Have you listened to the content of the song? It’s the content that matters. The person has his reasons for singing that particular song, so far as the person chose you amongst the lot for a feature, support the person to sing the song. I want to ask one thing am I God to judge them?
“God didn’t come because of righteous people so I’m not the one to judge anybody in this world. No. If the persons song will promote my genre and all, why not, I will help the person. I will do it, this not my first time, I’ve done it before.”
