Our artistes are now even nominated in international awards. Some of their music has crossed to the diaspora.
Unfortunately, we can’t really say the same for the gospel arena. Apart from just a few gospel artistes, most of the gospel artists are still very reluctant and sketchy in their works. Most times the audios are semi-good and the videos are just unspeakable.
Talk of lyrical maturity, most times they sing the same line in a number of songs without applying any creativity.
On fashion, it’s absurd most of the time how they dress. All these things keep the Ugandan gospel music lagging behind. The quality of the videos too hinders progress.
You may find that some widely watched Television stations will not allow playing a song with a mediocre video. Obviously, we know this comes as a result of limited funds but that can’t be made an excuse.
Truth be told, there is a lot of space for gospel music to thrive. Those that have tried it can testify. We can’t deny that the talent is there, vocals are very mature.
As a matter of fact, most of the secular artists that have made it in the music industry came from Church. This means there is more than just an opportunity for gospel music to make it.
