A Catholic priest in the Abuja Archdiocese, Rev. Fr. Chinenye Oluoma has disclosed that the popular gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo now charges N10 million to perform in churches.
He made this known while decrying how religious worship has become costly.
Speaking in a now trending video on social media, Father Oluoma berated gospel musicians who demand huge payments to perform in a place of worship.
Citing Mercy Chinwo as an example, the cleric, in a viral video, reiterated that the singer charges N10m as performance fee in churches.
â€œWe have made religious worship expensive. If I have to bring Mercy Chinwo to come here and sing, how much will I pay her? How much does a gospel artiste of Mercy Chinwoâ€™s status charge to come to an event or in a Church, it has reached N10m now.
â€œThis is the tragedy that we have turned Christianity into, that an artiste will come to a church and lead in ten minutes praise and worship for N10m, N5m. So if that particular artiste doesnâ€™t sing Jesus you love me too much, that means God didnâ€™t love you too much?
â€œAnd some people were asking should they be paid? Why didnâ€™t you pay them? If you must bring them you must pay them because what you are bringing them for is entertainment. We have turned worship into entertainment.
â€œWe have copied the world. In those days, those who composed songs we are still using for worshipping nobody even knows them,â€ he said.
