Honestly one gospel personality I admire very much is Nacee. He is frank and does not behave like the many religious zealots who are marauding in the circles of Christianity. The musician who also doubles as a music producer, has called for an end to what he describes as the show of hypocrisy towards musicians who sing about sex and love.
He noted that if pastors are able to talk and write about sex and love, why should people judge musicians who sing about same. What has influenced Nacee’s opinion could probably be the fact lots of gospel musicians look down on secular musicians and think they are ‘worldly’ especially based on the songs they make which revolves around love and sex.
The multiple award winning artiste said he certainly doesn’t see anything wrong with a gospel musician singing on love and sex themes. The singer, who is currently out with a love song called Me Ne Woa said:
“Bible says God is love. When we sing about love, you are already mentioning God…,” he noted in an interview on Behind the Fame, a segment on Drive Time on Joy FM with Lexis Bill.
“It’s all about education… we’ve been in so many churches talking about it. That it is not wrong [to sing about love] … what if I wrote a book about sex, would you accept that one? Bishop Dag Heward-Mills has a book about sex and I think Pastor Otabil has books about sex and love and stuffs like that so what about that one is it because that one is written so it’s okay for you to accept that one?” the producer quizzed.
Explaining why he wrote the ‘Me Ne Woa’ love song, Nacee explained that 60 percent of Ghana’s population can’t read or write.
“So if we are trying to also communicate and also let other people get a part of what we are doing then I think I can also use another way to also touch other lives as well…”
In my humble opinion Nacce has hit the nail right on the head. The hypocrisy which shrouds Christianity is gradually making it unattractive for other people to join in. They claim singing or enjoying any other song apart from gospel music is sinful, yet this same people dance to the these songs during occasions like Easter, Christmas or wedding ceremonies.
I think will produce an exclusive article on this particular subject later.
