Young and budding artiste Kurl Songx has said that he should be given thumbs up for his “Trumpet” song instead of the criticisms.
Contrary to the ‘lazy approach’ tag critics have given him as far as bringing out hits is concerned, Kurl Songx says he ought to be lauded for achieving a rather difficult task as transforming a gospel song like “Trumpet” as creatively as he has done.
The “Jennifer Lomotey” hit maker was answering questions about his new single “Trumpet” in an interview with www.ghanaweb.com.
He said it took a lot of courage to take the ‘Trumphet’ song, considering how it had been made popular by gospel artiste Grace Ashly and he knows the gospel musician is proud of the new twist he has given to her song.
“Am I not supposed to be given a thumbs up for this? Who has done this? It is very beautiful you know, people have said they can’t play secular music in church, I have given you what you want”
Kurl Songs said he didn’t want to be profane, and he is aware that most gospel musicians take inspiration from secular musicians just as he did.
“The same way I am sure many gospel musicians draw inspiration from secular musicians, isn’t it beautiful? I am sure my mum Grace Ashly will be proud. I picked it up and made it mine. It is even difficult, a gospel song praising God, I picked it up and made it mine. I think I need thumbs up for it”
“Trumpet” was released a few days ago and is already enjoying a lot of airplay.
