Gospel artiste Mary Yab is worried about gospel musicians of today not making emphasis on the spiritual impact and messages their songs are suppose to convey. Lyrics are hurriedly composed without musicians paying attention to God.
The Kumasi based gospel musician made this statement in an exclusive interview on Sunday with the award-winning host of Angel Church bells on Angel 96.1FM, Alex Nana Opoku popularly known in media fraternity as Alexis De God’s Son.
According the singer, most of gospel songs of today lack powerful messages as we used to hear during the the days of Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Stella Dugan, Mama Esther etc. These songs were auspicious, transcendental, sublime, preach renunciation and edify the soul.
To her, most of the lyrics in gospel songs of today cannot be described as powerful because most of gospel musicians of today are too lazy to wait upon the name of the Lord Almighty as to be able write powerful gospel lyrics. One listens to the so called gospel songs and all that you hear are; Halleiuja, Halleiuja,Halleiuja, Halleiuja in the songs and nothing else.
