M.A: Not a problem, depend on the purpose, a concert is a concert, you don’t spend less on planning and logistics because it’s gospel. If you have enough creative content to sell, why not? I will be amazed if people can actually pay to cone see a Gospel concert. There must be some level of irresistible creativity and creativity is an innate inheritance, it’s a deposit of a creative God who made us in His image, it’s a gift people can’t resist, people pay for it.
Q: What is the pain and Gain as far as you are concerned being a Gospel Singer and record label boss?
M.A: You gain. No loss, being a Gospel Artiste is you dedicating your trade to things that the maker of all things wants. You go through the difficult path of hard work, and hard work is profit. You learn how it works and if doesn’t. Dedicating all that to things that pertain to Godliness is submitting yourself to the lordship that can never be equalled. This Lord owes no one, He is just, He pays.
