Gospel singer Joyce Blessing apparently admires the talent of fante rapper Kwaw Kese and she would want to feature him on her new album.
Joyce disclosed this to Showbiz in an interview, opposing the perception held by a section of the public that gospel artistes should not have a “working relationship” with those from the secular side because they are on different missions.
She described such comments as discriminatory and one that breeds disunity saying, “How do we win them over when you push them away with our ‘holy’ lifestyles? Besides, our Saviour Jesus whom we all emulate related well with prostitutes like Mary Magdalene. We all know about that story so how much more we human beings who are fallible”.
“We are not perfect so we can’t judge by telling who is righteous or not. I believe our collaboration will be the first step to bring that important change in his life”, she added.
Talking about her career, the “Monko Moakye” singer stated that her success did not come on a silver platter since she had been “underground” for over a decade before her break through. That, she attributed to how gospel artistes struggle with funding to get their works out in the public domain.
“If you don’t get a management that understands your field and what it entails, it is difficult to shine,” she said.
Joyce Blessing is currently one of the big names on the gospel music scene. Her third album, Heavy Prize which she released in 2013 shot her to fame and earned her the Best Gospel Album at last year’s Ghana Music Awards.
