Reserved gospel musician Kofi Karikari has opened up about his expectations for some recognized awards in the country.
According to the singer, he is more focus on preaching to people through their songs rather than competing for awards.
Over the years, some gospel artistes have been at loggerheads with each other over one award event or the other; something the multi-talented singer song-writer considers “shameful.”
In an exclusive interview with The Publisher, he stated that he is not moved by winning awards for his songs.
“Awards means absolutely nothing. I should rather be worried if my songs doesn’t bring about positive change in the lives of those that listens to it. This is God’s ministry and the focus is to touch lives and work for heavenly rewards.” – he said.
According to him, God is not going to judge any gospel musician based on the number of awards he or she won but how they utilized what He gave them.
The worship leader further disclosed, he is only a vessel being used by Christ to create Holy Spirit charged atmosphere for both congregational and individual worship for that, he writes his various songs on instructions base from the heavenly Father.
The gospel icon is credited with a number of songs such as ‘We Bow Down & Worship Yahweh’, ‘Hallelujah’ and others, has worked with a number of seasoned gospel artistes in the country over the years.
