Musician Ofori Amponsah has said that churches do not facilitate the growth of gospel artistes.

According to him, the church is not supportive of the musicians who help in propagating the gospel as they should.

“Church is not a place where you get help when you really want it,” Ofori Amponsah said.

Speaking in an interview on TV XYZ on Sunday, he explained that the church would rather pay a guest preacher or speaker than a singer. “They do not invest in people,” Ofori Amponsah asserted.

He noted that musicians can bend over for the church and barely get anything in return.

The musician explained that these comments are borne out of his experience with the church when he chose to become a man of God at the expense of his highlife career.

Ofori Amponsah revealed that he did not get the support he needed from the church during the launch of his gospel album.

He stated that singers cannot grow to their full capacity and be fruitful if they depend solely on the church.

Meanwhile, Ofori Amponsah has urged churches to be more supportive of their artistes and facilitate their growth.
