A renowned gospel music artist, Tosin Martins, has said it was very challenging for him to release his current album because he initially lacked the fund to complete the project.
Mr. Martins, who wrote on social media on Thursday, said people’s expectations from artists were usually high, hence the need to excel.
“The challenge is, I had to do so many things like putting out albums and at the same time, people are expecting you to come around and do concerts, travel to promote projects you already have.
“And the process of recording another album can take so much time, especially when you have to feature other artistes, you have to work with their time.
“In some other cases, you have to wait to get inspired to make sure you are delivering on a genuine level,’’ he said.
Defending his style of music which is a mix of secular and gospel music, he explained that the important thing was the message being sent out and the impact on the listeners.
“I don’t think they are contrasting with is the message I am putting out there.
“In fact, a secular environment presents you the opportunity to influence other people with the ideals and values of our faith,’’ he said.
