Contemporary gospel singer, MOG Music born Nana Yaw Boakye has disclosed to Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM that he doesn’t charge for church shows but that doesn’t mean he performs for free when he’s invited for song ministration.
“I don’t charge for shows to be honest but there are systems in place based on what our veteran gospel musicians have been through. There are systems in place to help us to raise money and to save funds,” he remarked.
MOG Music said “That doesn’t mean if you invite me for a church show I will be coming there just for nothing. I mean there must be a certain agreement that MOG has been invited so I decided to bless him with a certain amount”.
Speaking on the Kastle Drive show, MOG Music revealed that he only negotiate for payment when it comes to corporate events but performing his song in churches comes with certain opportunities and connections that might not be financially inclined.
He continued “But to say that I’m coming so let’s negotiate on the amount to be charged as for that one we don’t name our price. We only charge when it’s a corporate event as for that one we charge because with the church some really want to have a feel of my ministry.
“Maybe they might not be financially sound so through the song ministration God will also use it to open more opportunities for me so that’s the way I see it,” he told the host.
He added “So I don’t follow the money per se but I follow the heart behind the money so through that God also connects me to some influential people who will help me in one way or the other which also bring me money.
“That’s how it is so even though I don’t charge for shows based on what our veteran musicians have been through we have put things in place so that in future there won’t be the situation where I have to go and beg for money,” he ended.
