I made money from gospel music— Singer Kcee

Nigerian singer, Kingsley Okonkwo, popularly known as Kcee, has stated that he made money from gospel music in his career.

Kcee made this known in an interview with Cool FM, Lagos, which was shared on Monday.

He said the gospel album, ‘Cultural Praise’ with Okwesili Eze Group, which was released in 2021, was his most streamed record to date.

He said, “When I did the gospel and a lot of people were like, ‘It’s over, he is actually going close to his village. Now he’s taking the music to the village. I think he is moving from his town to a village’.

“That was horrible. When I heard that I was like, ‘Okay, let’s see how that works’. And it didn’t happen. I made more money from it; more than any ever before in my whole career.”

Speaking on how certain he the song would be a financial hit even before it was released, he said, “I knew I was going to make a lot of money. I fought with a lot of people before I released it. They said that this one is 10 mins and a lot of people in this generation do not have that patience. That project has been my highest stream project ever.”
