Gospel artiste, Bouqui, has revealed the struggle her colleagues have to go through in the music industry dominated by secular artistes.

Bouqui, born Bukola Folayan, is well known in Nigeria as a gospel rapper and she has many people who love what she does.

But in a chat with the Nigerian Pilot, the artiste said gospel artistes are “swimming against the tide because we dare to be different and because globally gospel artiste face more challenges to spread their message.”

"It is just important that hope of better days ahead is given to a dying genre of music and a generation that is looking to the secular to draw power," she said.
