UK-based Ghanaian gospel minister, Samuel Séy, has said he sees nothing wrong with artistes and pastors who are fond of flaunting their luxurious possessions.
In an interview on Hitz News@1, the singer said there is nothing wrong with gospel acts buying and showing off expensive items.
He said, ‘If you can afford it. If you have it, for me I think you need to wear it. I don’t think if you’re gospel artiste or a Christian or worship minister you don’t have to wear expensive clothes or brand clothes’, he said.
The 2019 Ghana Music Awards ‘UK-Based Uncovered Artiste of the Year’ also added that being a Christian doesn’t mean one must look poor just to preach humility.
Mister Samuel who’s well-known for his “Kronkron” song said, a number of people criticize him for his appearance but a lot of people also admire his fashion sense.
‘If you are a Christian, it doesn’t mean you should be dressing in that typical way. Others criticize [me] that why are you wearing these expensive clothes. It is too much expensive’, the artiste stated.
Séy feels that individuals, irrespective of their faith, should be allowed to wear what they like as long as they can afford it. He added that there is no crime if a gospel artiste decides to buy a wristwatch worth $150,000 just like Nigerian singer Davido did.
