Sonnie Badu stated that all of the musicians and instrumentalists on his shows are compensated.
Sonnie Badu, a well-known gospel musician, has stated that gospel music does not pay well in Ghana.
During an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat, Dr. Badu argued that doing gospel in Nigeria is more profitable than doing gospel in Ghana.
According to him, this is one of the reasons why most secular artists do not perform gospel music.
“It’s not their fault they don’t do gospel music because there’s no money in gospel music.” They don’t get anything and are mistreated.
“They just give them whatever they want.” If you are a gospel artist and go to Airport Shell, you should be able to pick whatever you want for free. If you go to the airport and are able to board a Delta flight, you can do so for free. “When you go to the studio to record a song, the engineer will say, hey, you’re a gospel artist, it’s free,” he explained.
“There is logistics for free in this God’s work, but there is a cost to pay logistically.” Every musician on my show is paid, and everyone has an invoice. Every musician will be compensated.
“If you don’t have the balls, you can’t do it; don’t even try.” And I understand if you want to do me a favor in exchange for a favor. But nothing in this world is free.”
He urged aspiring gospel musicians to be resilient, emphasizing that success in the field necessitates dedication and tenacity.
