It’s not bad if Gospel artistes collabo with secular artistes - Janet Otieno

Gospel artistes like Willy Paul and Bahati have been criticised over collabos with secular artistes.

In the past, Gospel musicians like Willy Paul and Bahati have come under fire for collaborating with secular artistes like Harmonize and Aslay.

Janet is of the opinion that there is nothing wrong with that but the song should remain Gospel.

“I would say it’s not that bad if a gospel artiste collaborates with a secular artiste, every human being needs to offer their praises to God, but it has to be purely gospel,” She told Nation Newspaper.

She also went on to admit that some Gospel artistes are lacking mentorship “We have a young generation of both male and female artistes who may be lacking mentorship; they are still growing and need some guidelines on how to go about it. Doing reggae, ragga or rap is not bad, we just need to address the content in the songs. Are we telling the artistes who are talented in these genres that they shouldn’t sing for God? Otherwise we’ll lose them to the secular world.”

The Gospel artiste also revealed that some artistes are also under pressure from society who want a club-banger as opposed to a more traditional Gospel song.

“Society is also to blame because it had gotten to a point where if you didn’t do a club-banger type of song then you wouldn’t get as much support for your music: airplay, award nominations and wins, or concerts. So it became more about showbiz rather than ministry,” Janet told the paper.
