Secular Artistes Are Not Trustworthy; I Won't Feature Them - Cwesi Oteng

Cwesi Oteng
 The 2014 Africa Gospel Music Artiste of the year, Cwesi Oteng in an interview with YAW Ampofo Ankrah of Radio XYZ 93.1fm in Accra Friday 12 Feb, 2016 spoke on a range of interesting issues from his Early and humble beginnings, family, spirituality, The Ghanaian economy and our Government, individuals mind set and his music career at length on "MY STORY" a segment on the late afternoon show called " LET'S GO".

When asked if he would love to collaborate with secular musicians since that seem to be the newest trend in Ghanaian gospel scene, he was quick to say yes but wouldn't love to feature a secular artist on a gospel song.

"I would love to collaborate with a secular musician to talk about issues, I mean on education, on any other thing else but I wonder what song we are going to sing. Are we gonna sing gospel music or what? I won't feature a secular artist on a gospel music because they are not trustworthy. You will do a gospel music with them and yet you will see them bouncing and kissing a woman's nipple on another video. I won't do that with my Gospel music. But if we are doing a plain secular based song like on an educational project…cleaning why not".

When further quizzed about the fact that his collaboration on a gospel song with a secular artist could lead to a change in the personal life of such secular artist and so would he willingly loved to do that…Cwesi answered; "They don't need me to change, you don't need to be on my album to change. I think we shouldn't water down gospel music because is a work for God".

The ‘God Dey Bless Me’ singers new single ‘Testify’ will be collaboration with a Nigerian Gospel musician and it's expected to be out by middle of March this year.
