In present Ghana, many Christians have alleged that the current gospel songs they are exposed to carry no “Holy spirit”.The idea came about as a result of some ungodly behaviors put up by some current Gospel musicians in the country. Many have broken up their marriages,others are engaged in backbiting,adultery,ungodly utterances,indecent dressing and others. Many say they prefer to listen to past gospel music in the past by artistes such as McAbraham,Comfort Annor,Mama Esther, Cindy Thompson and the likes.This perception has been seen by many current Gospel musicians in the country as false.The “Daye” Gospel Hitmaker,Patience Nyarko has said on Atinka FM’s drive show that,present Gospel musicians should not be looked down upon but Ghanaians should offer their massive support to them because their performance is very appreciable.Patience believes everyone has his or her part to play and as such the “then times” Gospel musicians have done their best and are gone so is yet their time to do their best as well.She added we had some people too who were not doing well in the olden days so same could happen in the present. The Gospel artiste said she sees nothing really special about the old Gospel artists for current Gospel musicians to receive such treat from Ghanaians.She continued that the past generation Gospel musicians had their own shortfalls and as every human,this is inevitable.So,Ghanaians should limit their criticism of current Gospel musicians and support them for their good works.
