Gospel musician Siisi Baidoo says there is nothing wrong with charging gate fees at Christian events.
He said this in response to comments made by colleague Ernest Opoku who argues that there should not be fees charged at Christian events.
According to him, taking money from people before they patronise the auditorium of your events prevents those who truly need God’s favour from receiving their miracle.
“It is wrong for you to make money before people can enjoy your program,” Ernest Opoku said a Hello FM interview.
However, Siisi Baidoo disagrees.
Speaking to Doreen Avio on Daybreak Hitz, he mentioned that even though he does not charge gate fees at his concerts, he sees nothing wrong with doing otherwise.
He added that he acts based on instructions given to him by the Holy Spirit.
“There is nothing wrong. It depends on what you’ve been directed to do. If we are doing a program and we have been directed by the Holy Spirit not to charge, we would not.
“I don’t charge at my concert because I have been directed not to.”
The Sunsum Kronkron hitmaker also pointed out that there is a need to cover costs when putting together concerts hence the reason why it’s not wrong to charge gate fees.
“There’s nothing wrong with taking gate fees because of the cost of event planning. I am particularly keen on what God is saying about that particular event and what he intends to do and if anything is a hindrance, I’ll take the thing away.
“It’s not because I have something against gate fees but it’s just the direction that God has given me,” he said.
Siisi Baido is a prolific gospel musician who has songs like The Promise, Onyame Tumfo, and Kabiyesi amongst others.
He is currently promoting his single titled Sunsum Kronkron.
