Kanye West's win at the Billboard Awards is a warning to the Gospel Industry. (@jaysmoke)Blog
Kanye West outshines every known Gospel artists and wins big at the Billboards Awards. Exactly what will happen in our Gospel industry if these 'Industry Heads' continue to look down on the talented and devout young Christians doing Urban Gospel.
Most times when God's people refuse to recognize the times and tap into what He is doing, He will use an outsider to shake things up and hopefully wake His Children up.
Imagine a Sakordie, Shatta Wale, Kidi, Kwame Eugene, Blacko, Kofi Kinata or Stonebowy deciding to do a Gospel project for the year!!! Before you realize, instead of the Gospel Industry infiltrating the secular categories, it will be the other way round and God being full of humor, will let them win.
This would have happened already if not for the guys who FOUGHT fervently to deny some of these secular guys a slot in the Gospel categories but how long can they keep fighting?! Already Kidi (an AfroPop artist) has dominated the Dancehall category, could the Gospel categories be next?
Why can't we have a Gospel song in Dancehall Category, a Gospel song in Hip-Hop, Hip-Life Category, a Gospel song in High-life Category? A Gospel song in Afro-Pop category? It's not that we don't have the songs, they are there, but 'some' people will refuse to PUSH them, instead will be pushing the traditional/contemporary gospel music!
I can't think far, are we here to just fit in or to dominate? When will we realize that these kids are the future of Gospel Music and start giving them the support they need because if you don't, it won't be long before even your Gospel categories will be taken over by unbelievers.
