Popular gospel singer, Sammie Okposo is one happy man from bagging the Best Gospel Artiste at Nigeria Entertainment Awards in New York to releasing the first single off his next album, Who Tell You Say.
The singer told Saturday Beats that this song was different and listening to it, one might not know that it is a gospel song till the message is heard because of its high tempo beat.
He said, “At first listen and if a careful attention is not paid to the lyrics, one might not believe it’s a gospel song. Who Tell You Say?’ has all the trappings of high rated music, very groovy and different from the norm.”
He further told Saturday Beats that it was time for the message of God to be taken to clubs and other places that the gospel is not normally preached.
“It’s high time we took our message to the clubs and other places that the word of God is not preached. Gospel music should be able to make playlists of different music stations and appeal to many souls. It might be very groovy but the message is powerful enough to bring about change in their lives. Gospel music should not be made for the church only because everything we need is in the church. The time is now for gospel music to take its rightful place in the Nigeria music industry,” Okposo said.
The singer said he will be dropping two of such singles before the release of his next album temporarily scheduled for April 2014.
