Expressing her dismay at the exploitation of gospel musicians by event organizers who fail to compensate them fairly, Baafi revealed that many musicians have switched to secular genres due to insufficient support.

“Many secular musicians started in the church but left because they were not properly supported,” Philipa Baafi revealed.

She pointed out that despite the significant investment gospel musicians make in their careers, they often receive minimal returns as their work is seen as a service to God.

Baafi also highlighted the financial hardships faced by aging musicians, attributing their public appeals for assistance to the industry’s inadequate funding.

Her call for fair recognition and support for gospel musicians underscores the need for a more equitable compensation system within the gospel music industry.
