Media Is Killing Gospel Music in Nigeria—Ann Inyang
Gospel singer, Princess Ann Inyang, has disclosed that one of the challenges gospel artistes were facing is not poor quality of video, but that of airtime.
The gospel artiste who is known for her hit track song, 'Akanam Nkwe,' among other others, explained that media houses prefer playing more of the secular songs from Monday to Sunday and pays little attention to the gospel genre.
She yelled at various media to try and give air gospel music in their various platforms because there are people out there who prefer gospel music to secular songs.
'Our greatest problem is airtime. In fact it is killing our career. Media owners do not accord us airplay but they play secular music from Monday to Sunday and then tell you that gospel music is 'religious,' she decried.
'I have lived in South Africa where gospel music is played much more than secular music. In fact, they play it every day. Music is music. It is a calling, talent and gift irrespective of the direction you want to shift to. There are people who love gospel music. Let them have their choice instead of pushing it away from people. If you don't play those songs how will people hear them? It is a pain in this country, because I travel overseas and my songs receive generous airplay,' Ann suggests.
