Ghanaian Gospel musician, Eric Jeshrun has said it is wrong for Gospel music to be classified as a genre.
He argued that describing Gospel music as a genre will limit the word of God.
Eric explained that Gospel music is all about spreading the word of God through a song.
“We have defined gospel music as a genre but I don’t think gospel music is a genre of music. You can have gospel rap or gospel afrobeat because of the message the songs carry,” he told DJ Advicer in an interview on Happy FM.
He detailed that any song that talks about the birth, death, resurrection and ascension of Christ can be described as a Gospel song.
“Gospel music should not be classified differently from RnB and Funk. Gospel is not a genre of music,” Eric Jeshrun emphasized.
