The issue of Ghanaian gospel musicians fighting George Quaye over his bribery claim against them has taken a new twist – they are now fighting themselves because they share different opinion.
Cwesi Oteng is not cock-a-hoop about his colleague musician Nacee’s stands on the bribery saga. The “God Dey Bless Me” hitmaker believes Nacee’s words to gospel musicians in a way of defending the PRO for Charterhouse, organisers of the annual Ghana Music Awards is wrong.
Reacting to the statement on twitter, Cwesi described the “Ye Wo Nyame A Yewo Adze” singer’s comment as irresponsible and disloyal.
“I find Nacee’s comments to gospel musicians irresponsible and disloyal.” he tweeted.
What at all did the music producer and musician say to warrant this punch from Bra Cwesi Oteng?
Nacee in an interview with Franky5 on Hitz FM’s This Is Gospel entertainment show asked gospel musicians to forgive George Quaye for his careless talk because he has apologised for his action, zionfelix.net reported a week ago.
He stated emphatically that gospel musicians can never organise their awards so they should never plan of boycotting the biggest music awards in the country.
Nana Osei went ahead to question the whereabouts of the many gospel music awards, which started years ago. The renowned gospel artiste tasked the musicians to sit with George Quaye and solve the problem instead of going haywire on radio and TV.
“We should leave George Quaye alone because he has apologised. The bible says we should forgive and so long as the person has seen that what he did was wrong and has apologised, why shouldn’t we forgive him?
I’m just pleading with my brothers and sisters to forgive. We cannot organise any awards.
I’m daring anyone who thinks he can organise gospel awards to try it in this country, we cannot do it. How many awards haven’t we tried in this country but where are they now?
Multimedia tried one but ask them when they will orgnise the next one. They will tell you they suffered before even getting sponsors for that gospel awards.
This is not the time to runaway from the problem. If you think someone has offended you, you sit with the person and solve the issue.
So if you set up your own gospel awards scheme and you think they are also not treating you well, are you going to leave that one as well and setup another one?” Nacee said on Hitz FM’s This Is Gospel show with Franky5.
