The Nigerian famous social media commentator Daniel Regha has claimed it is ridiculous that Mercy Chinwo charges N10m to perform in churches.
Regha said gospel artists shouldn’t charge money for performances in church.
In a post on his Twitter handle on Thursday, Regha claimed that the church is only obligated to provide hospitality and cover their transportation costs, if necessary.
He wrote, “Mercy Chinwo charging N10m to perform in Church is ridiculous, gospel artistes shouldn’t charge a dime; The church is obligated to provide hospitality & cover the transportation costs of invitees if necessary but paying anyone to perform is wrong. A true Christian will not charge.”
DAILY POST recalls that a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Chinenye Oluoma had claimed that Mercy Chinwo charges N10 million to perform in churches, decrying how religious worship has become expensive.
