Over the years, many Ghanaian Gospel musicians have fought their producers for what they describe as cheating or taking undue advantage of them and their hard work but "Bless Me" hit maker, Don Simon seems to have an antidote to the menace.

Born Osei Simon, the musician who recently burst unto the music scene with his debut album Bless Me under Skyview Entertainment said a lot of Ghanaian Gospel musicians are lazy and do not add value to themselves hence being taken for granted and cheated.

According the certified Chartered Accountant cum musician, it is imminent Ghanaian Gospel musicians add values to themselves by investing into their education and creating other streams of income than relying solely on revenues from performances and album sales since trends have totally changed.

“A lot of musicians tend to fight their producers especially when they hear their songs doing well in places but the truth is a song’s popularity may not necessarily reflect in album sales,” he said.

Citing Sonnie Badu, Diana Hamilton, Jael Wiafe, DSP Kofi Sarpong and many others, the singer said all these artistes have other streams of income and continue to build reputable brands which are well respected hence the respect they command.

“On several occasions, I have heard colleagues cry and complain of how pastors unfairly treat them after performing in their churches and listening to their stories, I wonder if such things can happen to Sonnie Badu, Jael Wiafe, Diana Hamilton and a few others. The difference between these artists is that the latter have branded themselves well and command some respect therefore requesting for their services at events come at high costs.”

Unlike Hiplife musicians who have managers and are always looking at building reputable brands, Don Simon asserts some Gospel musicians feel they need to look ordinary.

He has therefore advised colleague musicians to better position themselves by learning the business they ply, invest the little the money they make and look at other streams of income than the regular traditional means.

Don Simon also called on Gospel music producers to better position their artists and seek for the best interests of both parties to avoid the regular news of abuse and cheating.
