Popular gospel singer, Asu Ekiye took to social media to call out singers who sang other people’s songs at the just concluded gospel concert: The Experience.
Taking to Facebook, Asu Ekiye wrote on how a singer with many years of experience would not be able to sing their own song at a concert, which he likened to lack of creativity.
MY TAKE ON SOME GOSPEL ARTISTE AT THE EXPERIENCE 2019
When you are invited to a global platform like The Experience to minister in music and all you can do is to sing other people’s original songs except yours, then I think you are either passing through a fraudulent public appeal syndrom or you lack originality and professionalism
After twenty years of full time music ministry and with at least 4 album projects to your credit , you have problems singing your own songs in big events, then you need counseling.
You should be pitied rather than being celebrated.
Any gospel musician who has been in ministry for more than ten years and rely on popular songs rather than his own songs to appeal to a crowd is a mediocre brand.
However, I must commend the visioners of the Experience . It is a very powerful global showcase of our gospel music culture. I have been there twice and it remains the biggest stage in Africa .
