Ghanaian gospel duo, Tagoe sisters recently revealed in an interview on “Ofie Kwanso” on Okay FM in Accra that modern pastors fail to support both rising and mainstream gospel artists in Ghana.
According to the popular gospel duo, they had immense support from the late Francis Akwasi Amoako when they came into the industry at first and pointed out that things have changed recently.
“We are not getting the necessary support from our pastors today. It looks like our efforts doesn’t matter to them anymore. When you are done singing that is it”. They told Abeiku Santana.
Adding, they pointed out that one of their biggest challenges is financial aids and even when they are able to record, pastors do not support them in marketing. They explained that this is very worrying .
“Formerly when we were offered money after a performance, we hardly accept it because money isn’t our motive. We thought it was a sacrificial job. But we came to realize that financial support was needed to push our talent. We spend money on almost everything so it’s needed”.
