Gospel artistes can do reggae... As long as the message is right - Stitchie

Stitchie

Lieutenant Stitchie says there is nothing wrong with gospel artistes doing reggae music, as long as the message is spreading the word of God.

Speaking in an interview with The WEEKEND STAR, the former dancehall deejay said gospel artistes have to be keen on sending the right message, as their main purpose is winning souls for the Kingdom.

"I do not mind a gospel artiste doing reggae music. it depends on the message. If the Lord leads you down that path, then do it, but make sure that the music is aligned with the word and the motive is right," he said.

Stitchie is promoting two new singles, Warpath and Temptation, which, he said are doing really well.

The video for Warpath, produced by Manudigital (Flash Hit Records) and directed by Romain 'Sherkhan' Chiffre, was released late last year and is available for viewing on YouTube, as well as his official website.

The artiste also revealed that Temptation is charting well. Temptation was released about a month ago and is number 15 on the New York Top 30 reggae chart. It has also made it to charts in Florida and Europe.

Stitchie has also finished work on his autobiography, Power of Determination, which, he said is available for download on his official website, Kingstitchie.net.

Kartel verdict

Commenting on the Vybz Kartel murder conviction, Stitchie said the situation is unfortunate for everyone involved. He also expressed hopes that this will be a time for the entertainer to reflect on his life choices to see where he went wrong and, perhaps, turn his life around.

"Nothing is impossible with God. Paul was a murderer before he encountered Christ and Paul turned out to write at least 13 books in the Bible. God can use anyone," he said.
