Revered sound engineer and a former regular entertainment critic on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review, Fred Kyei Mensah, fondly known as Fredyma, has added his voice to the number of industry people who have ben lambasting current gospel musicians who honks noise over beat.
Resorting to his official Facebook wall, Fredyma opined: “Shouting while singing, is it a new trend? Seriously, I find it disturbing these days listening to some beautiful tunes from some of my lovely Gospel Musicians especially, the ladies laden with some sharp, itchy, voices perforating through the holes of our ears.”
As a professional at what he does, he suggested, “They should try as much as possible to choose the right Keys, pitches, etc. with the help of their producers to churn out good music.”
Fredyma also made the point that, producers and sound engineers who work with the gospel musicians are to blame for such conducts. “Here the producers/sound engineers cannot escape blame.”
