Empress Gifty Adorye has expressed worry about how some people deal with Gospel musicians.
She was unhappy about how society sometimes treats Gospel musicians.
According to her, there are some people who would even tell a Gospel musician what to wear.
The ‘Aseda’ singer said it is wrong for people to define Gospel musicians.
“If you are a gospel artiste, they want to define you, and it is very wrong. Sometimes they want to tell you what to wear; they want to tell you places you can go, and I still don’t get it,” she said in an interview with Nana Romeo on Accra FM.
After being criticised for performing at Stonebwoy’s ‘Ashaiman To The World Concert’, Empress Gifty sees nothing wrong with what she did.
“Why is it that you see somebody ministering on Stonebwoy’s stage or Shatta’s stage, or Sarkodie, and you start to tag a gospel artiste? That is what I mean when I say that they should understand the system for us. The CD and cassette systems are no more. We are now in the era of pen drives and streaming. You listen to music on the internet, so the person gets revenue.
“So, they need to understand that we are humans and our feelings are working as well as our conscience. We know what is right and wrong, and the judgmental attitude toward gospel artistes is so weird. If they can limit it a little bit, they will see the best of us,” she added.
