Award winning gospel musician Gifty Osei can’t fathom why Ghanaians cannot see gospel musicians as human beings who have blood running through their veins.
The ‘Aseda’ hitmaker says every gospel musician has got feelings but Ghanaians don’t expect gospel artistes to have one; not to talk of expressing it.
Pouring her heartfelt message on social media, the Empress, as she calls herself wrote: “It is only in Ghana that gospel artists cannot retaliate if he or she is being disgraced by word of mouth or any other form of abuse”.
She added that Ghanaians also do not expect them (gospel artistes) to live a luxurious lifestyle such as using expensive cars, living in a mansion, or going on vacation outside the country.
“Gospel artistes do not have a say in matters arising: be it social, political or economy of the country. Gospel artistes cannot go abroad to rest. Gospel artistes cannot voice out her feelings if she is suffering emotionally in her marital home. Gospel artistes cannot retaliate if he or she is being disgraced by word of mouth or any other form of abuse.”
