Obaapa Christy has sent out a message to critics of Gospel artistes. Oftentimes, some Ghanaian Gospel artistes are criticised over their actions.
Commenting on this, the ‘W’asue Me’ singer pleaded with Ghanaians to calm down with their criticisms. Christy explained that Gospel artistes are humans and not angels, so they could make mistakes.
“There is no need saying all sorts of things to dampen their spirits. I sometimes hear not too good comments about gospel musicians when their issues come up and they can be very disheartening.
“Inasmuch as we are gospel musicians, we are mere mortals and we are bound to make mistakes too. Some media persons and Ghanaians dwell on the negatives instead of focusing on the positives. What is the point in rejoicing over someone’s downfall?” she said in an interview with Graphic Showbiz.
The popular Gospel singer further advised her colleagues to put a value on themselves.
“I always say that when you place value on yourself, no event organiser will pay you whatever they want but rather give what is due you when you are hired to perform. I have done this for over 20 years for anyone to just pay me any amount. I am paid what I am due and that is because I am worth it,” Obaapa Christy stated.
She is out with a new song titled ‘Ebesesa’.
