Multiple award-winning gospel singer, songwriter, Sonnie Badu says there’s no money in doing gospel music in Ghana.

According to the philanthropist and music producer, Ghanaian gospel musicians are not treated well and they don’t get anything from producing quality music and they .

“There’s no money in gospel music in Ghana. It pays to be a gospel musician in Nigeria but not here in Ghana. They don’t get anything, they are not treated well. They just give them anything,” he said in an interview on Starr Chat on Starr FM with Bola Ray.

The US based musician also vehemently disagreed with the opinion held by a section of the public that gospel musicians since they are doing the work of God must not charge when they hold concerts or perform at events.

“…Then there should be an avenue where if you a gospel artiste and you go to the Airport shell you can pick anything you want for free. If you go to the Airport and you want to jump onto Delta Airlines, you can pick it for free. If you go to a studio  to record a song the Engineer will say hey you are a gospel artiste so do so free. Nothing is for free, even the Bible we read I did get it for free, I paid for it. So this thing …work of God, yes, salvation is free but for logistics, there is a price to pay.”

Sonnie Badu revealed that he’s paying every musician who will perform at his upcoming Rhythms of Africa show.

“This concert I’ll be having I’ll be paying them, everybody has sent me an invoice, every musician and instrumentalist will be compensated….Nothing is for free in this world.”
