A renowned gospel singer, Pastor T. O. Oyerinde has said that gospel music in Nigeria is being handled in most cases by men and women who do not understand what gospel means and are not in the gospel themselves.



Pastor Oyerinde who is the Zonal Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church,  Ogudu Zone, Lagos stated this recently in an exclusive interview with CAC NEWS.




He explained further that; "gospel song is beyond mentioning Jesus and names of fathers of fathers of faith in songs. A gospel musician must be convinced of the definite message he has for the believers and the unbelievers. Entertaining people should be the least in our motive for singing."




"In Nigeria presently, a lot of unregenerated elements have flooded the industry, creating serious confusion, and making it almost impossible to differentiate between worldly and churchly lyrics."




"The mode of dressing of the most so-called gospel artists is very disgraceful. The legacies of founding fathers have been jettisoned in so many quarters but thank God for the few who are still consistent. May God help us."
