Celebrated gospel artist, Mercy Masika is disappointed by the rising statistics of gospel artistes moving to the secular world of music.
According to the Goodwill Ambassador, these artistes eventually don’t get far.
Unfortunately, the gospel music of today is all about entertainment. Something Masika believes has been derailed from the actual meaning of what spreading the gospel through music should be.
And to her, it is sure a waste of time and resources.
There is a shift. It is no longer about entertainment. Anyone who is going on the wave of entertainment is going nowhere. It is just going to make noise and have no impact.
Contrary to the ‘fun’ masses elicit from secular music, Mercy cites this as pure noise that bears no fruits in the long run.
Her point of caution to gospel artistes losing track on what they are here to do, is that their replacements are slowly coming up and will eventually weed them out.
Whether her fingers are pointing in controversial artist’s Willy Paul’s direction, we are not sure yet.
However, she has made her position and I believe she has sent the message home.
Father of 3, Bahati is also affected in one way or another. This is after making couple of advances into the secular world of music right from its artistes to his conduct.
