Award winning Ghanaian gospel star, Cwesi Oteng has cautioned Ghanaians against tagging him a ‘Gospel Artist’.
According to the ‘’God Dey Bless Me’’ singer, being labelled a gospel artiste in Ghana is ‘baseless and overrated’.
Speaking in an interview on Hitz Fm on Friday, Cwesi Oteng insisted that Ghanaians should rather tag him a ‘Christian’ artiste since it perfectly fits into his mission for being in the gospel industry.
“It’s overused and become baseless to me. I prefer to be called a Christian artiste because it moves with my purpose, plan, and vision; anyone can be a gospel artiste now, so I prefer this,” he told the host.
He also added that he is pushing a heavenly agenda through his music ministry and wouldn’t want to be limited in his vision.
“I don’t want to be urban or contemporary artiste. I am a Christian artiste. People want that, and I am not interested. I was not called to establish that. I am pushing a Christ agenda that is heavenly,” Cwesi said.
The ‘Christian’ artiste further disassociated himself with artistes who resort to controversies to express their opinion about others in their bid to be famous. “I think we have a lot of nonsense to face. I am a no nonsense person. But people like to box people with their opinions and I’m not to be boxed…” I decided to be a great person when I was growing up and I prepared towards it. I am not arrogant,” Cwesi Oteng said.
