Celestine Donkor has stated that the poor lyrics heard in the songs done by Ghanaian gospel musicians is due to the poor preaching done by pastors.
According to her, the pastors are the reason why the gospel musicians aren’t delivering any meaningful message in their songs.
“The teachings from our pastors influence our lyrical content and it’s unfortunate that these days, what we hear from our men of God is nothing to write home about. If your leader is leading you astray, you obviously don’t expect any good result from the followers.”
Celestine Donkor went on to state that the kind of preaching done today is centred around prosperity.
“We are polluted with all sorts of preaching, if it is not about getting rich, it’s about having a husband or wife or travelling abroad to make money. With such sermons in our ears all the time, what do Ghanaians expect from the gospel musicians who see the men of God as their mentors?
“Some of the words from our men of God don’t inspire the congregation who attend their churches and it affects or influences the songs by gospel musicians.?
