“It is Not True That We Have Lost our Calling” – Rufftone Responds to Muthoni Drummer Queen

February 27, 2015

RufftoneGospel singer Rufftone has jumped to the defence of the gospel industry against claims that it has lost its true calling.
The claims were made by Muthoni The Drummer Queen(MDQ) during the launch of her album at the recently concluded iConcert over the weekend.
She urged gospel artists to keep it real and stop hiding under the gospel tag.
“I call out to and urge the artistes in the Kenyan gospel industry to be true. I ask them to make music that actually glorifies God and to lead lives that are true to their calling. If some so admire the secular music world and want to jump in, let them do that publicly. It’s about realness not trying to hide under the gospel umbrella.”
Rufftone has however insisted that the gospel industry is still true to the cause despite facing teething problems.
“It’s true that the Kenyan gospel industry is facing many teething problems, but as stakeholders, concerted efforts to ensure we remain relevant and true to our cause have been doubled. But it’s not true to say that we have lost our calling,” he remarked.
Adding, “Currently, the industry is full of so many young artistes. Some of them have just cleared secondary school while others are still in school. For pioneers like myself, among many others like Pete Odera and DJ Kev, we are offering guidance to these young chaps and I am sure in four years-time people will realise a very big change in the Kenyan gospel music.”
