Celebrated Ghanaian gospel musician, Great Ampong, who has been in the news lately promoting his new song about the coronavirus has made some shocking revelations.
For a talented gospel musician like Great Ampong with 16 albums to his credit with numerous hit songs in Ghana. One would think that all is well with him. But contrary to that, life seems really hard for the legend.
Narrating how difficult life has been in the last five years he said “The last time I released a song was five years ago and that is because I am not getting a producer who will support me financially. Money is everything in this industry and once you don’t have money to record songs, shoot music videos and do promotions then you can forget about making it as a musician.’’
He also lamented about how all the big shows go to the secular artists and the gospel musicians always get sidelined or even don’t get paid at all after performing.
Despite his current challenges, Great Ampong affirmed he will never quit gospel music and called on churches and men of God to invest in Gospel music.
