Ghanaian musician, Kuami Eugene has said the target of preaching the gospel through music should be the secular individuals and not those presumably saved in the church.
His statement comes after critics lambasted him for blending his secular songs with lines of gospel songs.
Reacting to critics, the Lynx Entertainment artiste, said those who need salvation are those in the night club and that is why people need to see his style of music as a way of evangelizing the word of God to the masses.
Speaking with Y Fm, Kuami Eugene noted that he does not agree with this assertion that it is not right for him to infuse hip-life or whatever type of music he does with gospel.
“If gospel music is made for people that are close to God, then it should be played only in the church because that is where you find people that claim they really love God. Evangelism is the ability to go out there and reach as many people to share things about God with so I think it is even best to use every single opportunity to do that”, he said.
According to him, any opportunity that one gets to reach people, whether at the time they are dancing, drinking or whatever, it is only best that they fuse gospel in there to remind people who created all of us.
Eugene observed that people are trying to win souls in churches; however, these souls have already been won, hence, “The best way to sell gospel should be in the clubs”.
“We should be welcoming as Christians and we should be able to mention the name of God everywhere we find ourselves”. He told Yfm
