The Renowned Gospel singer Rev. Esther Nyamekye said Gospel music is a call from God.
According to her, some gospel singers give people what they want and not what they are inspired to deliver.
Even in churches, people loved to be entertained and gospel music has equally turned entertainment, which is not good. Gospel music is like the word, to minister healing, deliverance, salvation, praise and worship to people. The differences and the motives are clear.she emphasised;
The “)ne-yen adi no yie” hit maker said she doesn’t believe gospel music should be done just to entertain, but minister to people and praise God.
As a praise and worship leader, l believes singing praises and dancing should not be done or seen as entertainment, but thanksgiving and celebration of God.
Unfortunately, the love for money and the quest for fame have made most singers turn gospel music into entertainment and it is not supposed to be.
“It is good, l have nothing against singing popular praises. But we should be original with a message. God cannot call you with into the ministry without core message.
She made this known when speaking to the media in an interview at her 71st birthday celebrations in kumasi.
In an attendance to the celebration was Rev.Peter Kwaku Yeboa a TV host with Royal TV who also celebrated his 50th birthday with Rev.Esther Nyamekye admonished christians to have faith in God.
” Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” He said,
However Rev. Esther Nyamekye talking about her music career, She said Her husband Rev. Alfred Nyamkye has inspired her including the gospel singers.
” I have been privileged to meet or hear, as long as it is inspiring, l love them.
She said her expectation is for people to encounter God through her music. Get the message and not the costume, they should concentrate on the lyrics, that is where the message is.
