For the first time in a long time, Ghanaian singer, Efya has responded to critics who have been lambasting gospel artist, Celestinge Donkor, for featuring a secular artist like efya on a gospel song.
To Efya: “I do not see myself as a worldly person. God gave the talent and I can sing in any genre of music I want.”
Although concise, the message was precise and well unequivocally delivered.
Gospel artists featuring secular artists has never been anything new in the music space around the world, Tasha Cobbs featured hiphop rapper Nikki Minaj on her song Getting Ready, Michelle Williams also featured Beyonce on Say Yes. The list can go on and on. This is why artist from two genres combining to do something on a record does not deserve all the backlash it got.
