Award winning gospel musician, Dr. Sonnie Badu has stated that making gospel songs in Nigeria is more profitable than in Ghana.
Speaking on Starr Chat with Bola Ray Thursday, the award winning musician stated that it is not the fault of secular musicians not doing gospel songs.
“It is not their fault not to do gospel music, there is no money in gospel music. They don’t get anything, they are not treated well.
“They just give them anything. There should be an avenue where if you are a gospel artist and if you go to Airport Shell you can pick anything you want for free. If you go to the Airport and you can jump on Delta, you can pick it for free. You can go to the studio to record a song and the engineer will say hey you are a gospel artist it’s for free,” Dr. Badu stated.
According to him, he pays every musician that performs on his show including instrumentalists.
“So this work of God there is logistics for free but logistically there is a price to pay. I pay every musician on my show, everybody has an invoice. Every instrumentalist will be compensated.
“If you don’t have the balls you can’t do it, you can’t, don’t try it. And if you want to do me a favor in return for a favor I understand it. But nothing is for free in this world,” Dr. Badu stated.
