Veteran Ghanaian Gospel musician and songwriter, Hannah Marfo, has mercilessly fired event organizers who request for ‘free show’ from gospel musicians.
The “Papa Muo Bone Muo” hitmaker bitterly lamented that on most occasions – event organizers fail to pay Gospel musicians after events and Church programs.
To throw more light on her case – She recounted a Church programme she attended in Teshie where she had to pay her vocalists and bandsmen from her own pocket as the organizers of the show failed to pay her for her services.
She asserted that the event organizers swiftly quote Matthew 10:8 to defend their callous behaviour.
Hannah Marfo poured out these submissions during an interview with Kaakyire Ofori Ayim on Atinka FM’s AM Drive.
She also noted that although she is a Christian and strongly believes in God-given gifts, music has never been part of the talent God asked us to give for free in Mathew 10:8.
In her own words;
It’s sad when organizers quote “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give as written in Mathew 10;8 and insinuate that music is a God-given talent and so just like the scripture has mentioned, you need to give it for free. Meanwhile, Music was not mentioned in there
