I elevated financial standard in Ghana's gospel industry - Cwesi Oteng

Renowned gospel musician, Hermon Cyrus Kwesi Nhyira Oteng, popularly known as Cwesi Oteng, revealed that he played a pivotal role in elevating the financial standards within the gospel industry.

During an interview with Afia Coke, on Xzone on TV XYZ, the “God Wey Dey Bless Me” hitmaker shared that he was the first Ghanaian gospel artist to charge 15 Ghana cedis and implement a 50 cedis ticket fee for his events.

According to Cwesi Oteng, he pioneered the shift towards higher compensation for gospel artists within the industry.

Reflecting on the early 2000s, he highlighted, “I was the first person to pay Danny Nettey GHs600.”

Additionally, he claimed to be the first artist to provide financial compensation ranging from 200 to 300 cedis to fellow gospel artists, a practice that was uncommon during that period.
