Condemning Gospel-Secular Collaborations Is Extremely 'Bogus & Senseless' - Arnold Asamoah

Entertainment Pundit, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo says it's absolutely bogus and senseless to condemn gospel artistes for collaborating with secular artistes on a gospel song.

Arnold slammed Christian critics who find fault with gospel-secular collaboration because, to him, the same critics accept gospel songs which are written by secular artistes for their gospel music stars to sing.

He cited the likes of sound engineer, Kaywa and musician cum songwriter Akwaboah who produced or wrote gospel songs for gospel artistes to sing and perform to the delight of the Christians.

His submissions came on the heels of heated arguments over gospel songstress Celestine Donkor's collaboration with Efya and Akwaboah on her new song ''Thank You'' which some critics have spoken against.

''It is implicitly not right. It is extremely bogus...the same gospel people, this same people, they accepted the song; jumped to it, worshipped with it, praised with it forgetting that it was a certain secular artiste who burned the song.  Somebody like Kaywa, a legend when it comes to production, he's produced songs for the likes of Ohemaa Mercy and a few other gospel artistes. You know where Kaywa came from, however they accepted the song. So, somebody like Morris Babyface, before he said he will be Reverend, he was producing songs for Esther Smith and he was actually the pioneer when it comes to Hiplife at the Kumasi side but they accepted him. So, it doesn't make sense; it doesn't make sense at all'', Arnold stated.
