Empress Gifty breeds a troll
Woman Claims Ghanaian Gospel Songs Are Not Spirit Filled
I’m a game-changer in the gospel industry
Empress Gifty applauded a section of Ghanaians who for years devalued the hard work of local gospel artists under the pretext that their songs are not “filled with spirit”.
Critics comparing the new generation of artists to a veteran gospel singer contend that their old songs were more punchy and filled with the message of Christ unlike what is currently produced by modern gospel artists.
This claim has led to much condescension and promotion of foreign gospel music, especially from Nigeria.
In a live video, Empress Gifty lost her temper when a viewer named Sister Abena wrote that “most Ghanaian gospel musicians are not spirit filled”.
Empress Gifty agitated by the comment posed serious questions to the troll who explained that she listens to Nigerian songs due to their inspiring lyrics, which she cannot relate to when it comes to songs local gospel.
“What is spirit-filled?” What do you know about spirits? You are part of the reason that gospel artists suffer. What is filled with the spirit?
“What is the spirit in these songs that you listen to. Do you know their way of life? Do you know what they (the artists) are doing in Nigeria? You don’t know, but you have rejected your own gospel artists. Ghanaian Define witty word You don’t like yours, every day you want yours to struggle.
The self-proclaimed “game changer” in the gospel industry has launched a campaign against the influx of Nigerian gospel music into the country.
According to her, churches in Nigeria do not play or sing Ghanaian songs, but her country prioritizes their songs at the expense of local gospel artists.
“I want to ask you a question, when was the last time a Ghanaian gospel gospel musician, including myself, went to Nigeria and heard them sing one of their songs during worship? get out “Ayee Ayee”, no song from A list of Ghanaian artists is played in their churches. If you have ever encountered something like this, be bold and face me, “she added.
