One of the most prolific gospel artists in Ghana Michael Oware Sakyi, AKA “OJ”, has attributed the unstable nature of unity among gospel artiste to mostly the female artiste in the gospel music industry who focuses on competition rather than on their calling.
“The women dress and pass comments that make their fellow female artiste feel inferior, as for we the men we do not care because at the end we will not be judged by our dresses,” he said.
The Nipa Hia Moa hit singer cautioned his college artiste to desist from creating atmosphere that will not create unity in the industry and stay focus
“God will not judge us based on competition but how we used what he gave us. You will have a fulfilled life when you are focused,” he stated
Reacting to issues that should be resolved in the gospel industry, OJ told Eddy Blay on The Late Night Celebrity Show that Video Clips of Gospel arts need to follow latest trends.
“We need to improve on our video clips so we don’t get left behind since visuals speak to the audio as well,” he cautioned.
OJ has been entertaining Ghanaians with his soul winning songs such as ‘Nipa Hia Moa’, ‘Kosoa Na koso’, ‘May3 se mo pen’, among others. He is also hopeful to celebrate and thank God for a 15 years’ experience as he launches his foundation in May.
