Gospel musician, Diana Hamilton, has indicated that she sees nothing wrong with musicians making profit from singing about the gospel.

According to her, musicians invest a lot into their craft, a justification that they should enjoy the fruit of their labour.

“It is business. ...The gospel is free, but the medium through which the gospel is spread is not free. The gospel is free but the Bible is for sale. The word of God is free, salvation is free to all; however, the Bible has to be bought. If it comes as a free app on a phone…you [still] have to buy a phone,” she is quoted by classfmonline.com to have said on Gospel 360 on Accra100.5FM.

The singer however advised musicians to know how to strike a balance to avoid drifting from the purpose for which they were called into the ministry.

“The problem is, sometimes, when a musician’s price is going up, she forgets to look to God, then her spirituality begins to go down, such that when she is called to perform, she fails to deliver,” she said.

Mrs Hamilton is out with an album titled, Yehowa. She is known for hit songs like ‘Osoro Bekasa’ which earned her Best Female Vocal Performance and Gospel Song of the Year nominations at 2008 Ghana Music awards, and ‘Ensi Wo Yie’ which was also nominated for Gospel Song of the Year at the 2010 Ghana Music Awards.
