Seasoned Ghanaian gospel artiste Mercy Amoah, popularly known as Ohemaa Mercy, has refuted claims that the standards in the Ghanaian gospel industry has been lowered.
She insists that the industry is doing far better comparatively.
Many music pundits and critics have all the years criticized the attitudes and posture of recent gospel artistes, accusing them of veering off from the standards of the traditional gospel music.
However, adding sharing her views on the narrative on Akoma FM‘s Saturday show Entertainment 360, hosted by Tony Best, the astute gospel artiste said she does not condone illicit behaviour and the backlash the industry receives but she thinks they are doing far better than it used to be.
“I don’t see that the standards in the gospel industry have lowered as perceived by people. I see much improvement, I see the eagles God is bringing into the industry. The gospel industry today is getting international exposure, the collaboration Ghanaian gospel artistes are having with other foreign artistes is superb.
“There is no human institution that has not lived without flaws and I acknowledge the hitches in ours, however, I can say the industry is seeing much progress.”
On why Nigerian gospel industry is doing extremely well compared to Ghana, Ohemaa Mercy said: “The Nigerians have the numbers in terms of population, they have a large market. Besides, they have people who are willing to always help compared to Ghana.”
The ‘Menwu da’ hitmaker recently held the 9th edition of her “Tehilla experience” which was characterised by praises and divine healing.
