An upcoming gospel act, Sister Oladosu Abayomi Blessing, has said, though she does not subscribe to it but she won’t blame gospel artistes who bill churches and Christian organizations for ministrations.
Speaking with News Hub Mag! she disclosed that it is not always easy for upcoming music acts to make ends meet and the uncertainties attached to ministrations at times makes it necessary for some to bill before coming to minister.
“Imagine you have to minister in a church; you go with like two or three backups, drummers, repercussions and after the ministrations the organizers come over to you and say, ‘God bless you for coming’.
“How do you transport your crew back, how do you settle your crew and so on? Or after the ministrations you are given N3000, how do you share this among your crew?
“So, while I don’t do it, I won’t condemn those who bill beforehand. I believe it is a way of removing sore stories after the ministrations. Moreover, when you talk about the fee before hand you will be able to plan your journey and know how many people to take along,” she said.
Born into the family of Rev and Mrs. Farowo Oladosu, the Engineering graduate of the better by far institution disclosed that she started musical career in the year 2017.
She stated that her maiden album will be unveiled this Sunday, September 19, 2021 by 1pm at Macedonia Baptist Church, Oke Kudu Gbagba Airport road, Ilorin.
In her words, “My maiden album, Heart of Gratitude will be unveiled this Sunday and we are expecting ministers of God to come and show hearts of gratitude to God. We are expecting Triumphant Voice of God, CAC Gesthemain and Light of Redemption Baptist Church choir among others.”
Speaking on the journey into producing the album, Blessing said it was just by the mercy of God. She hinted that lack of funds forced her to halt the production last year but along the line God raised helpers and the album is now a testimony to the faithfulness of God.
On whether she might move to other genres of music in the future, she told News Hub Mag! that singing is not just a talent to her. She said it is a call to serve God and a mandate and that is why she has obediently stuck to her calling of only singing praises to God and edifying his church.
