LILONGWE (Malawi NewsNow)- Musicians Union of Malawi (Mum) pesident Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango has advised gospel artists to respect what they are and move within the line of what they preach.
Mhango’s advise comes after he disclosed that MUM is flooded with complaints from various events organisers complaining about the malpractice of gospel artists who fail to perform in their concerts despite receiving money.
We really need to match what we preach and as gospel artists we need to realise that this is a ministry and that we are singing not only to get money but preach the word of God. This is a very unfortunate development and we need to refrain from the practice,” he said.
Mhango said the malpractice of gospel artists not performing in concerts having received money is painting a very bad image of the gospel music industry as well as the creative industry.
“As Mum we will look into this issue seriously and as artists we will sit down to map the way forward, otherwise, it is not healthy,” he said.
