Ghanaian gospel artist Celestine Donkor has ignited a conversation within the industry about the dwindling collaborations among top female gospel musicians.
In an interview on Okay FM, Celestine pointed out the difference between the gospel and secular music when it comes to female artist collaborations.
The acclaimed gospel singer expressed her observation, stating, "It is very rare to witness top female Gospel artistes collaborating with each other, unlike their counterparts in the secular music industry who frequently feature one another."
Celestine Donkor emphasized the need for unity and collective effort among gospel musicians, stressing that such collaborations could have a positive impact on the industry and help showcase the diversity of talent within the gospel music sector.
"No song collaboration that has two or more top female gospel artistes comes to mind right now if I try to recount," she remarked during the interview.
To address this gap, Celestine Donkor recently released a new single titled "What Shall I Render," a heartfelt thanksgiving song celebrating the Lord for His continuous goodness throughout the year.
Notably, this track features the esteemed gospel artiste Obaapa Christy, marking a step towards fostering collaboration and solidarity among female voices within the gospel music industry.
The collaboration with Obaapa Christy on "What Shall I Render" exemplifies Celestine Donkor's commitment to breaking the barriers that have limited joint projects among leading female gospel artists.
