Use your choir if you can’t pay gospel musicians – Kwesi Ernest

72154782.295

Boss of Media Excel, Kwesi Ernest has warned churches and pastors who want to engage gospel musicians to be ready to pay or else use their church choir for all their church events.

There have been lots of allegations against pastors, churches who invite gospel musicians for church events of not paying well and sometimes nothing at all.

One gospel musician who shared his story with Christian Agyei Frimpong host of Onua 95.1 FM entertainment talk show Anigye Mmre is SP Kofi Sarpong.

According to him, a pastor invited him for a church event and after the program, the man of God gave him meat pie.

According to the gospel musician who doubles as a police officer, the pastor kept him waiting for hours before attending to him and his instrumentalist with the snack and that was all.

Kwesi Ernest who joined the discussion narrated how bad some pastors treat gospel musicians anytime they engage their service.

“As for me I want to tell the pastors if they can’t pay for the services gospel musicians render to them during their church programs, they should let their church choir sing for them,” Kwesi Ernest asserted.

“One thing Pastors don’t want to hear is when a gospel musician tells them to talk to their managers before they can accept their invitation to sing at their church programs,” he added.

Government Insurance Policy For Entertainers Is Needless – Music Producer Kwasi Ernest

1

Music producer Kwasi Ernest has rubbished plans by government to institute insurance policies for people in the creative arts industry.

The initiative by the Ministry for Tourism, Arts and Culture to insure players in the Creative Arts sector to enable them to have comfortably old age has been met with mixed reactions from diverse angles.

According to the ministry, the move had become necessary in the light of the sorry state of some veterans in the creative industry, a number of who have had to publicly beg for support. The proposed insurance scheme will cater for health, pension packages, injuries on set etc of creative arts players. Mr. Kwasi Ernest is one who believes this move isn’t a laudable one.

In an interview with Zeal on Homebase TV, he expressed his disbelief in the said insurance scheme and lamented the poor remuneration system in the industry should rather be looked at.

He said, “I personally don’t believe in anybody doing insurance for old musicians. If i have a good job, ill cater for myself and my family without anyone’s help. No other profession in the country is treated this way so why are things different with the creative arts?”

He stressed the point that people in the industry are totally fed up with deceits from successive governments.
