If you’ve been following the music industry lately, you may have heard some rumours that gospel music is dead. But Dan Mogore, the popular gospel singer and event organizer, says that’s far from the truth.
In a recent interview with a local media house, Mogore was quick to shut down claims that the gospel industry is dead. He argued that those who left the industry did so because of money, not because they wanted to serve God.
“There is nothing like gospel industry dying,” he said. “Gospel industry died long time ago since they were there for money. They lacked material after they found out that there was no money. The gospel ministry is there forever and ever.”
Mogore also dismissed claims that some artists are returning to gospel because their secular music failed to pick up. He believes that the word of God can never die and that those who left the industry are now trying to come back and save it.
But he’s not the only one who feels this way. Other artists like Pitson and Bahati have also expressed their opinions on the state of the gospel industry. Pitson believes that the division in the industry was prophesied by the late Big Kev, while Bahati argues that some gospel artists don’t have the gospel of Jesus in them.
Despite the differing opinions, one thing is clear: gospel music is still alive and well. Mogore, who started his music career 10 years ago as a member of his church’s praise and worship team, has released several albums over the years. His latest album, set to be fully released by the end of this year, includes his hit song ‘Uko juu saana’.
So if you’re a fan of gospel music, don’t lose hope just yet. The industry may have its challenges, but there are still many artists out there who are passionate about spreading the word of God through their music.
