Ghanaian gospel musician, Nacee has debunked assertions that live worship performances by gospel artistes diminish their creativity.
Many radio stations seem to have adopted the style of inviting gospel singers into their studios to lead their listeners in worship sessions.
But the ‘Zaphenath Panea” hitmaker speaking to Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz said more gospel artistes are following the trend in performing songs created by others, and not making an effort to create their own songs.

He added that the Gospel music industry will lack talented and spirit-filled musicians and writers like the Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Yaw Sarpong, Tagoe Sisters and himself.
But in an interview with Nacee on the Daybreak Hitz show, he rebutted the assertions of Omane Acheampong, saying he doesn’t believe live worship can affect the creativity or brand of a gospel artiste.
According to him, radio stations are always after contents that will easily generate revenue for their companies hence he cannot fathom how that would affect an artiste.
Buttressing his point, Nacee said: “content is not stagnant so it depends on the radio or TV station; if they want it [Live Worship] fine… If you think it is not your style, don’t go and waste or kill your brand…’ he told Andy Dosty.

He further advised members in the gospel guild to desist from unnecessary noise making whenever they engage in live worship shows on radio.
The astute gospel musician indicated that most of the gospel musicians shout on top of their voices rather than sing to entice their audience professionally.
Now, it has become like the order of the day as worship songs are all about shouting; we have made it like when you do that you are a true worshiper”, the ‘E be God’ hitmaker said.
He added that the image we have tamed for the live worship is becoming like if you shout, you are a good singer but that is not it. I have a soft voice and if I shout, I will lose my voice…’ he maintained.
