Veteran Gospel musician, Yaw Sarpong has revealed that content in the majority of secular songs are great and much better than those of some gospel music.
Yaw Sarpong is a Gospel musician who is known for his inspiring albums, Classics of Yaw Sarpong and the Asomafo 2017(Oko Yi). He is a signee to the Owusek Production, Ox Records and Rolhag LLC Record label.
The gospel musician said some of the secular songs are inspiring and worth listening to because the content of the message it carries serve as a motivation to human life thereby uplifting the human soul.
Yaw Sarpong stated that, and I quote “I have had the opportunity to listen to a lot of secular songs and gospel songs and I must say that I prefer the secular ones although all the songs are good but majority are great”.
Later he said, there is nothing wrong in singing love songs and he holds nothing against secular musicians singing love songs because the inspiring message it carries is the most important thing.
The Veteran gospel musician made reference to one of Ghana’s Multiple Award- winning rapper and Entrepreneur, Michael Owusu Addo professionally known in music circles as Sarkodie. Yaw Sarpong said he admires Sarkodie so much and he is in talks for a collaboration with him.
I totally agree with the gospel Musician because it is said that “music uplifts the human soul” therefore if somebody who is in a depressed and confused state listens to some of the love songs which carries a message that coincides with the person’s situation it could serve as a motivational message to the person.
