Gospel artist Pitson whose real name is Peterson Ngetha is speaking out after artists raised some concerns over current Kenya’s gospel industry saying it is dead.
Following the backlash, the ‘Niache Niimbe’ hit singer in an interview on Youtube has responded to those claims with new revelations that he claims were prophesied by the late Big Kev a month before his demise in 2017.
Pitson says, he visited Big Kev who had lost his sight but apparently he could still see as his vision was intact.
Big Kev shared with him a vision where gospel singers were divided into two totally different groups prophesying the actual fall out of various artists in the gospel industry.
“There is a clear separation between artists and soon after Big Kev’s death, it all came to pass. What we are experiencing now was all prophesied,” he claims.
He further claims that most artists are ditching the gospel industry because there are no Gospel music awards.
“The industry was put to test and many fell off. There is publicised hatred among associates which has also been attributed to the division the industry is currently facing. Most artists were in the industry to win awards and gain fame,” he addded.
The Gospel industry in Kenya has been facing major backlash for the last couple of months from artists transitioning to contemporary music.
Among others, Bahati who recently made his ultimate cross over to secular music opined that the gospel industry is infested with artists who do not believe in what they preach through their music.
“The gospel industry is full of artists who do not have the gospel of Jesus in them. One of the reasons why we no longer see the hits like before is because their hearts are dirty. They are jealous and ungrateful,” he adds.
On his part, Guardian Angel claims that while the gospel is alive, the industry is long gone.
“The gospel of God is alive but the industry died a long time ago,” he said.
