Gospel Musician Nii Boye believes gospel songs are not given attention like the secular songs making it difficult for gospel musicians to shine like the secular musicians.
“I know a lot of secular musicians who started as gospel musicians but because they were not given the attention as gospel musicians they had to go secular to be heard. The likes of Kwabena Kwabena, Kuami Eugene, Kelvyn Boy, Kaakie among others started as gospel musicians but probably had to switch to secular just to be heard,” he said.
He added…..”I want to plead with promoters, radio stations, and any institution that help push gospel music do so.”
According to Nii Boye who is known in private life as Emmanuel Hammond, we complain there are few slots for gospel music at awards schemes hence the reason gospel music needs help.
“We need promoters for gospel music. We just have a handful of gospel promoters but when it comes to secular there are so many of them. It is more difficult for a young secular musician to make it than a Gospel musician” he added.
Nii Boye is ready with a single for the easter festive and beyond which is entitled ‘HES WORTHY’. This song speaks about the lamb of God (Christ) sitting on the throne, surrounded by angels and dearing unto Him, worthy is the lamb that was slain.
The song is full of the spirit of God, touched by his silky, and will be released on March 29th. The song was produced by King Matthew of Zo-em studio in Dansoman.
Some of his recorded songs on his previous album are Adom Nkoaa, Yeyi Waye, Amanfrafo, Joy, Yehowa Yeyi Waye, Wami Koo and more.
