Controversial social media influencer and critic, Daniel Regha ridicules the fee of N10m charged by the famous gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo for performing in churches.
This came following an outcry from Rev. Fr. Chinenye Oluoma, a catholic priest, who raised concerns about the escalating cost associated with religious worship, specifically highlighting Mercy Chinwo’s alleged fee of N10m for church performances.
According to Regha’s tweet, he believes that gospel artists should not request payment for their performances within the church setting.
In a tweet shared on Thursday, Daniel Regha argued that the church’s responsibility should be limited to providing hospitality and covering transportation expenses if need be.
“Mercy Chinwo charging N10m to perform in Church is ridiculous, gospel artistes shouldn’t charge a dime; The church is obligated to provide hospitality & cover the transportation costs of invitees if necessary but paying anyone to perform is wrong. A true Christian will not charge,” he wrote.
The post has sparked reactions from netizens; while some agreed with the influencer, others argued otherwise that gospel music is an occupation, likening it to secular singers.
