Daughters of Glorious Jesus, the Ghanaian gospel trio has described gospel musicians who don’t write songs as lazy.
The trio, however, admitted that songwriting is difficult and a daunting task but prayed that every gospel musician should be able to write new songs than recycling and rendering the same old songs to the public.
“These days, most gospel musicians are lazy. Most musicians simply do a rendition of the old songs available. Writing songs is very difficult but we believe that when they sit down to write, it will be better,” Daughters of Glorious Jesus advised.
“We came to meet a lot of songs already in the system that is good and nice, but if we had relied on those as Daughters of Glorious Jesus, we wouldn’t have any song to our credit today,” they added.
Expressing their worry on the recent happenings on the gospel front on Showbiz Xtra with Docta Cann, the trio urged gospel musicians to stop singing for fame but for the salvation of lost souls like they have been doing for past 30 years.
“Most of our songs are from the Bible. We have not only labeled ourselves as gospel musicians but we have received Christ Jesus as our personal Lord and savior. We are not singing for fame but for lost souls to be saved through our songs,” the trio stated.
Daughters of Glorious Jesus, comprising of Cynthia Appiadu (lead singer), Edna Sarpong and Monica Owusu Ansah came into the gospel music limelight with their debut album “Anwanwa Do” in 1990.
