The renowned music producer and yamaha ambassador Wilson Joel took to His timeline to pen a short latter to Gospel music artist, differentiating  between the ministry and career.

He said

This may be a controversial one, if you don’t like the #TRUTH PLEASE STOP READING NOW

I see a lot of people say “oh I don’t charge” or “Oh or “I am not going to commercialize my music” in the name of being a #GospelMusic artist

Well, without trying to bash your personal conviction & before i quote you scriptures, please NOTE : This isn’t to stir #REBELLION but a #MINDSET_REPAIR

1. International Gospel artistes dont come to Nigeria or Ghana or Africa to sing and get a “God bless you” or “Pentecostal handshake” BECAUSE THEY KNOW THIS TRUTH Proverbs 4 : 7

2. You have bills to PAY & not being financially stable can be an embarrassing scenario

3. God wants you to be fruitful. He wants your gift to open doors for you – Gen 1 : 28

4. You’re Judah. You have honor, dont be the last- be the FIRST

5. Whether you like to admit or not, most of the gospel songs you like today are commercial songs…. Yes, it may certainly be anointed BUT it was either catchy or strikes a chord with your innate being

6. Having a technical rider should never be overlooked, that’s how you create or kill your career : Isaiah 28 : 10

7. #Music is a Career, Gospel Music is a Genre Of music just like #Jazz or #soûl… Just that this is for a Christian market/audience : Ecclesiastes 9 : 10

8. You should have a basic requirement when invited & asked WHAT YOU WANT AS RENUMERATION. At least ensure your transportation, team & accommodation is taken care of. Don’t leave it to que cera cera. Although there are cases where you won’t ask for a dime and get a fortune reward DON’T ALWAYS PLAY IT FORWARD. You can’t be doing that for ever, when you grow old you may regret it

9. Do very good recordings. Represent yourself well via the quality of your works. Don’t say “The holyspirit will take charge” when you’ve not followed through by being orderly

10. Learn music, publishing,distribution & marketing : The holyspirit don’t go round selling CDs or MP3 for you. You have a sound mind, make God & your Family proud

READ YOUR BIBLE❤️ Don’t go broke being SENTIMENTAL. However, What works for A May not work for B
