It has been my desire for a very long time to start up a strictly gospel music critique + review blog!.
Yup! A very looooooooooooooooooooooong time. And I give glory to God for its birth. So here goes…
In Nigeria, almost on per second billing, a new gospel song is recorded and released to the general public to be a blessing to the body of Christ (at least i hope so!). Different christian songs of different genres laden with strong and sometimes ridiculous lyrics are published daily to boost of the Gospel music industry in Nigeria and the kingdom of God (not so sure of the latter for some songs tho).
I am an ardent fan of gospel music in Nigeria. A devout christian and worshiper. I love music a lot and I have heard all sorts; gospel and secular and I have developed a little knowledge of the industry being a keen watcher.
Our Heavenly Father is a God of order. He believes in excellence no matter the costs. He fights concepts like disorder, average, marginal, smallness, haphazard etc. Poor is even unthinkable. It therefore breaks my heart when artistes, who are supposed to be bearers of God’s banner churn out average even poor rating songs. Many try to copy secular songs forgetting the very essence of their calling/career and ministry.
JESUS and his Kingdom.
I’ve always wanted to shout but I keep quiet so as not to mess with people’s emotions but its getting out of hand.
BUT NO MORE!!! THIS IS SPARTA!!!
I’m not much of a writer, please pardon me but this is how we are going to roll.
We will put up the song for listening and then critique it as objectively as possible. Everything is still my Opinion though.
We would also give the fans the opportunity to rate the song via a poll. It would be cool.
Guest reviews are also welcome.
Send your review to email@example.com.
We would review and maybe publish.
WE WANT BETTER GOSPEL SONGS, JESUS DESERVES BETTER.
