Ghanaian music producer and singer, Nacee has disclosed the impact gospel music has had on humanity.
Speaking in an interview on Happy FM’s social and religious programme ‘Nsem Pii’, the ‘Mpaebo’ composer said gospel music has saved many people from committing suicide and other things.
He argued that gospel musicians are like pastors—as they propagate the word of God through their songs.
“Gospel music is just like a pastor preaching to you at church. Gospel musicians get inspiration from these preachings or from the Bible or someone’s story so if they record that in a song and it is played on this platform for instance, your audience will hear it and if one of them is suicidal, he could change his mind,” he said.
In this vein, Nacee stated that gospel musicians need more support to continue to work effectively and make societal and generational impact.
“Gospel music has helped people to realize that there is God and that we must believe in Him. Gospel music has helped to bring families together, settle people’s differences and it has helped people in their religious life and with their connection to God,” he added.
