Nigeria: I’ve Made More Money From Gospel Than Secular Music, Says Kcee

Kcee, the singer, says he has made more money from gospel music than secular songs.

In an interview with the OAP Dotun on Cool FM, the music star said people mocked and discouraged him from switching genres.

The 44-year-old artiste said his gospel songs have contrarily been his most profitable and streamed project.

“I’m a risk taker. Moving from Afrobeats to gospel was like risking my career 50/50. I did it and it worked,” he said.

“A lot of people around me said it wasn’t going to work. They said I shouldn’t try it but I believed in the risk and it gave me a whole new crowd.

“That was the only gospel music that played in strip clubs and beer parlors. I performed in churches and all that. I’ve always focused on what I have. I nurture it, I put it together, and put it out.

“When I did the gospel songs, a lot of people said it’s over. They said I’m actually going close to my village and I’m taking the music to my village. They said I’m moving from town to village, that was horrible.

“When I heard that I said Okay, let’s see how that works. It didn’t happen and I’ve made more money from it than ever before in my whole career. I knew I was going to make a lot of money. I was too sure.

“I fought with a lot of people before I released it. They said the song is 10 minutes and this generation doesn’t have patience.

“They said the music should be two minutes but I told them to not worry but to just release the song. And that project has been my highest streamed project ever.”

Kcee is from Amaputu in Uli, Ihiala LGA in Anambra state.

He is the brother of the business mogul E-money.

In 2021, he teamed up with the Okwesili Eze Group to put out a gospel music album titled ‘Cultural Praise’.

Earlier this month, he released ‘Ojapiano’, a music project where he used local instruments on Amapiano.

Kcee is currently signed to the label Five Star Music.
