In recent times, we have seen several artistes crossed the bridge from the secular industry to the gospel music with the recent of this being the switching of former Capital Hills Records artiste, Chidiinma to gospel music.
This recent development has been a thing of joy for the christian community as over the years several artiste who have been part of the church choir have been crossing to the secular scenes due to lack of support from the church, mediocre handling of artistes and ignorance among the church. But this story is gradually changing as the gospel music community is gradually becoming enviable and attractive with many young generation artistes coming up.
The gospel music industry now boasts of excellent and quality artistes in every genre. There have also been the formation of standard record labels such as ROX Nation, Eezee Conceptz, Rock Town, Riems Universal, and many others who have been doing well in terms of artistes management and promotion.
With artistes such as Wizkid, Wande Coal, LIl Kesh, Korede Bello, Simi and many others haven started from the church, it is certain that we are still going to experience much more cross overs in the coming periods.
Meanwhile which secular artiste would you love to see minister as a gospel artiste?
