Artiste Development Manager at Zylofon media, Willie Roi, has asked Ghanaian Gospel artistes to go out of their comfort zone (Churches) and perform on big stages because they are born to evangelize to the world and not a select few who already know the lord and his ways.
His comments comes on the back of criticisms that Zylofon media signed act Joyce Blessings performs on secular shows and also perform peoples songs.
He indicated that as an artiste and a gospel musician as that, she is expected to do more to win the souls for God rather than sit in the Church and feel comfortable.
Willie Roi said Joyce Blessings has always performed secular inspirational songs since she started singing adding that it is approved internationally for an artiste to perform songs of their colleagues.
“Joyce Blessings used to perform secular inspirational songs even before she joined Zylofon media. It’s just because she is signed onto Zylofon that is why people have problems with her. If you don’t know you should ask and learn. Internationally it is accepted to perform songs of other people and there is nothing wrong with that”.
Willie Roi indicated that she (Joyce Blessing) is not just a show person but is a show and business person and is expected to do more to satisfy her employers and her fans.
He called on Ghanaians to educate themselves rather than act ignorantly about the whole issue.
