Seasoned Gospel musician, Minister Ike Odame who is currently on a media tour to promote his song titled “AWURA MU AWURA” has bemoaned the lack of appreciation in the Gospel music industry in Ghana. Speaking on ‘The Emergers Arena’ with host Sog Precious on TCA Radio, the ‘M’adanfoPa’ hit maker stressed that the one thing that really hurts him in the industry is the level of ingratitude by some of his colleagues.
“Let me be very sincere with you, some gospel musicians are very ungrateful. At the point where sometimes you meet themat their point of need, they feel like you did not do anything from them. After getting your help, they behave as if you haven’t helped them and that for me is a sign of ungratefulness. The unfortunate thing about me is, show me that ungratefulness and I will still extend a helping hand to others. That never stops me from doing what I want to do. I see it more as a service to God,’ Min. Ike stated.
Min. Ike Odame joins the likes of the CEO of Media Excel Kwesi Ernest, Prophet Badu Kobi, music producer John Mensah Sarpong et al, who have publicly lamented the neglectful attitude of some gospel artistes they have helped.
Minister Ike Odame has served as a backing vocalist for legends including Tagoe Sisters, Stella Aba Seal and Nacee.
