Mercy Chinwo charges N10m to perform in Church – Rev. Fr. Oluoma
A Catholic priest in the Abuja Archdiocese, Rev. Fr. Chinenye Oluoma has revealed that it cost the church N10m now to invite popular gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo for a performance.
Also, While speaking in a video that went viral on the social media, the Father slammed the gospel singer for charging such an exuberant amount to perform in the house of God.
“We have made religious worship expensive. However, If I have to bring Mercy Chinwo to come here and sing, how much will I pay her? How much does a gospel artiste of Mercy Chinwo’s status charge to come to an event or in a Church, it has reached N10m now.
“This is the tragedy that we have transformed Christianity into: an artist will visit a church and conduct praise and worship for N10 million and N5 million in ten minutes. Therefore, if that specific performer doesn’t sing “Jesus you love me too much,” would it imply that God didn’t love you excessively?
“And some people were asking should they be paid? Why didn’t you pay them? If you must bring them you must pay them because what you are bringing them for is entertainment. We have turned worship into entertainment.
“We emulated the other people of the world. The authors of the hymns we regularly use for worship today were not well known back then, he said.
