Why I roll with secular artistes, Gospel artiste Empress Gifty discloses
Ghanaian gospel musician and fashionista, Empress Gifty, has stated that she would rather hang out with secular artistes than most gospel musicians, describing them as 'hypocrites'.
In an interview on Xzone on TV XYZ, the 'Jesus over Do' singer, stated that she would rather vibe with the likes of Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, and other secular artistes than with most gospel musicians.
For her, she doesn't believe that being overly holy and praying in tongues makes one a better person than the other.
"I’m being honest, I’m very close to secular artists than my colleagues. Yes. Shatta, Sarkodie, like I’m cool with them. We are close because I think I’m too real and I don’t fake.
"I won’t meet them and start praying in tongues, I’m not the one to tell them they don’t leave in good structures no.
“This world we live in, no one is holy. We don’t have any righteous person so stop defining yourself as Spirit-filled, Holy Ghost, forget about that thing, we dealing with the heart.
"The person I might be judging may have a clean heart than me so I love them regardless.
“Why is it that the gospel industry we are not making it more than them but we play more live bands than them but they receive more money than us because we are hypocrites."
