Gospel Singers in the country seems to be at the receiving end, when it comes to bagging an endorsement deals, just because they are into one phase of music.

Popular gospel singer, Princess Anne Inyang, is one of them as she laments that secular music fetches more money, than most of what they get at the end of all the hard work they put through.

According to the UN ambassador, "One thing people do know is that a good song is a good song, anybody would buy it whether they are Christians or not. A lot of people bought the album of Midnight Crew because of the track 'Igwe', same thing with Frank Edward's track 'Mma Mma e' and 'Oghene Do'.

"Up till today, exactly 30 years after I wrote the song 'Things are getting better', people still use it as a song of consolation and in the church, a song of praise. Same thing goes to my evergreen song 'Akanam Nkwe' a good song remains a good song.

"Gospel Artiste's in Nigeria are not as well paid as the Secular Artiste but, we have more platforms than the Secular Artistes. There are more churches than you can imagine both home and abroad, and most of them organize one programmer or the other; so all things being equal, the Gospel Artiste has weekly engagements, depending on how popular he/ she is.
