I Don’t Mind Performing In Clubs –Gospel Artiste

Talented gospel artiste, Deborah Akoto, says she wouldn’t mind performing at clubs or pubs, as she believes those are the places where gospel music should be heard.

She emphasised that preaching the gospel through music remains the core duty of every musician, and therefore she doesn’t see the need to turn down an offer to perform at a local club or pub. ”We do all gospel music for all human beings regardless of whether you are a believer or a non-believer. So I wouldn’t mind performing in a club, casino or pub where people who go there are often touted as non-believers,” she said. According to her, ”The...
