Asu Ekiye attacks gospel musicians who sang other people’s songs at The 2019 Experience

Popular gospel singer, Asu Ekiye has called out his colleagues who performed at the 2019 The Experience which held at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos.

In a Facebook post shared, Asu Ekiye wondered why established gospel artistes went about performing other people’s songs at the event.

According to his words which many took to be a shade thrown at Sammie Okposo, such act is mediocre.

He wrote:


When you are invited to a global platform like The Experience to minister in music and all you can do is to sing other people’s original songs except yours, then I think you are either passing through a fraudulent public appeal syndrom or you lack originality and professionalism

After twenty years of full time music ministry and with at least 4 album projects to your credit , you have problems singing your own songs in big events, then you need counseling.

You should be pitied rather than being celebrated.

Any gospel musician who has been in ministry for more than ten years and rely on popular songs rather than his own songs to appeal to a crowd is a mediocre brand.

However, I must commend the visioners of the Experience . It is a very powerful global showcase of our gospel music culture. I have been there twice and it remains the biggest stage in Africa .
