There is no money in gospel music in Ghana – Sonnie Badu 

Published

Sonnie Badu

Renowned Ghanaian gospel singer, Sonnie Badu has boldly stated that there is a financial struggle within the Ghanaian gospel music industry.

According to him, despite the spiritual richness and significance of the genre, monetary rewards for gospel musicians in the country are not corresponding with their talent and dedication to the industry.

While shedding light on the challenges faced by artists who choose to dedicate their craft to spreading the good news, as well as the reason why secular musicians are not doing gospel songs, the ‘Baba’ hitmaker, opined that making gospel songs in Nigeria is more profitable than in Ghana.

He made this revelation while speaking with Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Thursday, December 7, 2023.

 “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,” he said. 

The crooner further disclosed that he pays every musician that performs on his show including instrumentalists. He emphasized that he will be paying all the musicians and instrumentalists who will be performing at his upcoming concert.

Sonnie Badu also 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.

“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 for my upcoming show.

“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,” he added.
