Gospel Singer Joe Mettle has revealed gospel musicians need to focus on the business aspect of their work to create quality music.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, the singer said, even though Gospel musicians are meant to use their works to win souls for God, how else will the person be able to do good music if there is no money to fuel it?”
Joe Mettle stated he believes in producing good music that can stand the test of time and touch the hearts of people which one needs money to do.
“If you do quality work it goes far when it goes far. It attracts people into the ministry and also more people patronise,” he explained.
In 2017, singer Ohemaa Mercy speaking on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM advised gospel acts to focus more on the music than making money.
She said it would be better if gospel artistes always listen to God and be conscious about gospel music work than focus on money.
However, Joe Mettle told KMJ, “we are focusing on what God has called us to do by seeking the kingdom and all other things, the money and business is part of the other things.”
He revealed he puts earnings from selling his music back into promoting his career and ministry.
