Akesse Brempong has revealed that musicians are losing revenue as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

According to Gospel Musician, he read a document from the World Economic Forum that said that fifty-five to sixty per cent of musicians' revenues are accrued from live performances.

In an interview on Citi TV's 'Breakfast Daily' programme, he stated that the advent of COVID-19 that necessitated a lockdown and the ban on social gatherings has rendered some musicians redundant because they are not gigging.

To him, this means that revenue streams for musicians have gone dry.

He revealed that there has been spike in the number of people streaming to online stores due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This he said represents some sort of hope.

Akesse noted that the expectation of the lovers of his music should be great Gospel music of hope and the message of Christ.

Akesse Brempong is a worship leader, songwriter, preacher, contemporary Gospel recording artiste, and a product of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

He is currently out with a single entitled 'Blessed'.
