Home / Music / Don’t Focus On Social Media Trends – Gospel Legend Francis Agyei Explains Why

Ghanaian gospel music legend, Elder Francis Agyei has advised gospel musicians not to focus on social media trends to the neglect of their spirituality, which is the bedrock of the path they have chosen.

“Gospel Music is spiritual and a ministry, it is not all about sitting on facebook for trends and canvassing for votes. You should trend in anointing of doing something good,” he advised.

Speaking to The Spectator ahead of the launch of his ‘New Covenant’ album on December 16 at the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC) at ATTC, Kokomlemle, he was quick to add that he was not condemning any artiste for using social media, but they must use it positively in spreading the works of God and not negativity.

He urged them not to leave behind spirituality and chase popularity, adding that being a gospel artiste goes beyond just singing.

For him, as a gospel musician, one should know God, spend time with their creator, and by so doing “God will reveal himself and gift you the artiste with an anointed song,” he said.

He therefore advised gospel musicians to be circumspect and spiritual in all their endeavour to be able to produce spirit- filled songs to change the lives of people and liberate them from bondage.

Looking at the gospel music from his break, Elder Francis Agyei said, many musicians had come into the scene, but the impact of gospel music on Christians and the country was less.

Against this background, he said it was for this reason gospel music from Nigeria had taken over the airwaves.

On his return, he said he prayed and asked God for directions, accounting for his comeback in a grand style, and called on all those who love his ministry to be at the launch to support him.
