Joyce Blessing has labeled some of her fellow gospel musicians as hypocrites who do not practice what they do or preach.
She made this revelation in an
interview with Graphic Showbiz, the “I swerve” hit maker hinted that some
gospel musicians are not what they presume to be. This was in connection to a
reaction she made when she said that some of the gospel musicians have refused
to work with her hence she is no longer going to collaborate with them.
“Apart from some Gospel musicians refusing to work with me when I reached out to them, the lifestyle of most of them are nothing to write home about. They actually don’t practice what they preach,” she said.
She therefore explained that it is management’s decision that she collaborates with secular artistes and that it is a strategically well thought out plan for her to do so especially as some of them have proven to be hypocrites and backstabbers, a situation she never believed could happen.
“It is sad that your fellow gospel musician will stab you in the back when they should rather be there for you. At least, most of the secular artistes I know are not hypocrites like the gospel musicians and I will choose any secular artiste any day,” she added.
She was quick to stress that it was never wrong for any gospel artiste to collaborate with a secular artiste since this is not the first time she is doing so.
“I have in the past featured the likes of A.B Crentsil, Lilwin and the late Jewel Ackah on my songs and trust me, the impact I had was just marvellous.
This is not to say I have not featured Gospel musicians on my songs but moving forward, with what I have observed, I think I will stick to working with secular musicians,” she explained.
