“The standard of gospel music production is very low in the Eastern Region. I partly blame the musicians and the producers,” he stated.

Speaking on the Adonko Taste Entertainment Show on Taste Fm with the host, Action DJ on Sunday, July 19, 2020, the musician explained that most of the up and coming gospel musicians have inadequate knowledge in composition and the ability to let the Holy Spirit lead them in songwriting.

In addition, they lack knowledge in digital production as compared to live productions which is expensive.

“Most of them have inadequate knowledge of digital productions. They are more vexed in live productions which is very expensive than the programmed productions. Besides, the region lacks live production studios. We don’t have any and I haven’t seen one yet,” the minister said.

Jeffrey Kwasi Boakye called for a more collaborative relationship between gospel musicians and producers. He added that the up and coming gospel musicians are ready to learn to improve production standards on the gospel front in the Eastern Region.
