Gospel recording artiste Carl Clottey has bemoaned the lack of genuine support and unity in the Gospel music industry. Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on HitzFm with Animwaa Addo, the ‘Aforeb)’ hit maker explained that there’s unnecessary competition in the industry which he believes is not healthy for its growth.
‘You feel alone when you start. There’s no one to help you especially when you are coming up. There’s not a lot of help that comes your way. I am grateful for the people that have come my way; some very big industry people like Nii Noi and the likes… but the unity is not there. Everybody is looking out for themselves…For the most part if you know your purpose and you know why you are called, you will do what you can and also support,’ Carl Clottey noted.
He added, ‘it is difficult for someone to click the share button on a fellow Gospel artiste’s song but in Nigeria you’ll see Ps. Nathaniel Bassey sharing artistes that we don’t know, putting them on his main Instagram page. For someone to even repost your stuff, it’s difficult because they think you are about to take their fans. These are the truths in our industry.’
Carl Clottey is the founder of Carl Clottey Ministries. He has a number hit singles to his credit including ‘One and Only,’ ‘D33d3w,’ and his latest ‘Ngbooda’ which features Gospel rap artiste Belac360.
