Up -and-coming gospel musician Matilda Wirekowaa has slammed some current gospel musicians saying they’ve become
According to her, most of these musicians have resorted to recycling and repackaging old songs and are selling them, a situation she noted doesn’t help them to develop their writing ability.
“We should know that we are just not doing songs to please people but rather draw them to God. We are projecting God and so we must make time to sit down and write good songs, arrange the lyrics well before we bring it onto the market to sell,” She told host Moses Aluebasi on Naagyei FM Entertainment show.
Matilda further said several gospel musicians in recent times are taking a cue from how circular musicians do their music.
According to her, when she went to the studio to produce her songs, the Engineer told her the length of her songs were too long and that she should shorten them as that is the current trend.
“If you take a look back at some of the senior gospel musicians the likes of Mama Esther you realize that each of their songs were at least ten minutes long and had very good lyrics. My song was eight minutes and had good contents but the engineer said it was too long and that nowadays we don’t do lengthy songs.”
Matilda is currently promoting her new album dubbed ‘HE REIGNS’.
She’s hopeful of growing to become a great musician in the new few years and win more souls for Christ.
