Music Careers Were Destroyed By Switch To Digital Music- Moses OK

Gospel musician, Moses Osei Kwarteng affectionately called Moses OK has said the rise of music streaming services damaged the careers of several Ghanaian Musicians.

He claimed that the musicians’ inability to keep up with or adjust to the change was the reason for this.

“The transition from analog to digital music affected us because we delayed switching to digital music and it killed the career of most musicians.”

“it was very normal” for some churches and organizations, after his service, to promise later payment and honourariums only to disappoint, “Moses Ok told Isaac Boama Darko on Adwenekasa on Accra-based Original FM 91.9.

He acknowledged that this mindset made it challenging for him to react to invitations to assist others with his musical talent because “it was as though I was working but seeing nothing meaningful come out of it.”

“It is scriptural [to pay someone for their service],” he stressed. “The Bible says, ‘A labourer is worthy of his wages’.”

He bemoaned the artist playing gospel music’s ongoing neglect.

“It’s like you’re on your own.” However, it is undeniably true that Gospel music is having a significant impact on the Body of Christ, “he added.
