Seek Advice From Veterans In The Gospel Industry—Rev. YABS


Veteran Ghanaian gospel artiste Yaw Agyemang Benjamin, popularly known as Rev. YABS has urged up and coming gospel musicians to seek advice from the veterans who pave the way for them.

The ‘Ne Mu Na Nkwa Wo’ singer speaking with Mr. Lattus on J.Life Fm Chat Show said authorities should put measures in place to ensure significant growth of the industry.

He believes the industry is not effective as their time due to the dormant nature of Copy Right Officials to punish musicians who infringe on copyright issues. 

 “The copy right authorities are not doing what they are supposed to do, that's why the gospel industry is not as effective as it was way back. Today, you hardly hear of people being punish for using other musician’s song without seeking permission from them first.”

Rev. YABS observed that the policies which were put in place by Former MUSIGA President, Sadiku Buari, helped the growth of the industry.

“Sadiku Buari did marvelously well during his term at office. A ban will be placed on your song if they found out that you’re using someone’s property without seeking permission,” he stated.

He said most musicians today are not creative and only resort to imitating already existing songs.

Rev. YABS emphasized on the needs for the young and upcoming gospel musicians to consult the old artists who has been in the industry for so many years with their music be the release them.

He advised the new crop of musicians not to focus on money…but rather made up their minds to serve God with their talents.

He also admonish them to devote much time to do the will of their creator, discover what God want them to do…and have the mindset that they are serving God with the Grace and talents God has given them and He (God) will give them good words to compose their songs with their talents.
