Gospel Artistes Don’t Do Anything Special - Ras Kuuku
Artiste, Ras Kuuku, claims Gospel artistes don’t do anything special as his song Gyedie is bigger than any gospel track that came out in the year 2020
Ras Kuuku has maintained that stakeholders should not try to draw a distinction between gospel artists and secular ones as there is no difference.
According to him, there is no reason that gospel artist should not feature secular artists because they're all in the industry together.
Using gospel tracks as an example, he pointed out that his song "Gyedie" in collaboration with MOG was bigger than all other gospel tracks in the year 2020.
The track, which he released shortly after winning his first VGMA plaque in 2020, attracted positive reviews with some industry folks commending the Rasta-man (Ras Kuuku) for opting to feature the man of God (MOG Music).
It quickly generated criticisms for MOG who was castigated for featuring on a reggae track.
“How can you say that a gospel artiste shouldn’t be featured on a Reggae Song? When you listen to the song, it is more than their gospel songs … When you check my ‘Gyedie’ is way bigger than every gospel song that came out last year. (2020) “
“My Song ‘Gyedie’ is bigger than every gospel song which came out last year. Whenever I come out with a song, people say Ras Kuuku’s vibes are clean. Everything about Rasta is pure and unique and whenever I do music I make sure I come out with a clean song…I just want to show the gospel artiste that when it comes to that kind of music, we are way better than them “
He said this on 3Fm’s weekend entertainment show; Showbiz 927.
This comes after the song has been nominated for the VGMAs Best Gospel Song category.
Ras Kuuku labelled those who at the time said gospel artists shouldn’t be featured on a reggae song as hypocrites.
Per his stance, gospel music can be done by any artist.
