GOSPEL artiste, Rev Gibson popularly known as Alaguaa is urging his colleagues to focus on coming out with songs that survive the test of time than being one time hit makers.
He said that would help the industry to grow since their influence will be huge in the music industry.
“What we can do to make the industry grow is to focus on bringing out good songs which would last through the impact they make. It’s not just getting your song to go viral but making sure the message they carry brings positive changes to the audience.
“And this can only be achieved when we concentrate on the message of God and not follow what is in demand. With that, we can appeal to both local and international audience and it is something I pray we achieve,” he told Graphic Showbiz.
Even though he has been singing for the past 22 years, Rev. Gibson commercially announced his presence with Israel Nyame in 2015.
Rev Gibson followed it up with other songs such as Wagye Me, Weep Not, Ayeyi Nnwom and Mmere No Soa which were fairly well received.
“Gradually, I am getting the attention through the promotion of my songs on TV, radio and social media platforms. It is also a great privilege to have you interview me since it adds to the visibility of my brand,” he stated.
Rev Gibson was born in Kojokrom in the Western Region.
He attended Barkers College of Bishops of International Council for Clergy Network and obtained a Pastoral Certificate.
Nevertheless, his love for music took over and today he is making strides.
Rev Gibson acknowledged that the journey has not been all rosy but he will not give up but rather allow the challenges to embolden him to pursue his ambitions.
“Getting your music out there is always a difficult task especially without professional management. I have single - handedly financed all the promotions of my music together with other relevant issues for my career growth. It has been difficult because I don’t have any financial support,” he said.
