    inasmuch as this is a good program, I’m not comfortable with the celebrities who were invited…. what happened to the gospel artistes who actually sing gospel? how is this different from project fame and the rest?

      Beats me totally.

      You want to get the best talents for the Gospel and yet you don’t have Gospel acts for them to look up to, not even as judges to the event. I have absolutely nothing against the celebrities here who are probably Christians too. However this program prides itself as “Africa’s Biggest Gospel Talent Show for Children and Youth”! City of David is it that Nigeria doesn’t have anointed, talented, successful and intelligent gospel music ministers??? I just want to imagine that there is even a half ‘explanation’ for this oh. It is well.

    I really don’t see anything wrong with these Judges, are they not all God’s Children?

    These Church people have come again, so now people can not even select their Judges in peace again? Oya you guys add Gospel judges so we can have peace

    To be honest I’m not really feeling the Judges from a Gospel angle but from a neutral perspective I don’t think it’s a bad selection. Omawumi, TY Mix and Kaffy definitely make a great team where talents are concerned.

    From where i see it Omawumi is a product of a talent competition, kaffi is a world record holder and even Teey mix has been a judge on other talent hunt platforms. Thumbs up to GCGT for the judges selection

    Well, i don’t see the reason on this fuze around the judges, I just want to focus on the prize money after all, the gospel artistes won’t do it for free. biko

    If the main focus here is talent, then I don’t see any problem. Maybe HOD should have had more gospel acts inclusion though.

    To be honest, we dont have the full information. what if they reached out to the gospel acts and they didnt agree? Besides 12 judges are not bad

    It seems GCGT7 has come to collect market from project fame and Nigerian idol with this set of judges. Holding on to my remote can’t wait to watch.

    If it was a random secular talent hunt then it’s ok to select random celeb Judges, but this right here is a ‘Gospel’ talent show so it’s perfectly OK to expect that big players in the gospel music industry will be involved. Let’s not pretend like things aren’t ran differently in d 2 world’s. Glowreeyah Braimah, Onos, Pat Uwaje King, Pita, Monique, Sinach, Odunayo Aboderin, Tosin Bee, to mention a few are the people I expected we’ll be seeing here. I imagine that if Project Fame decides to replace one of their Judges with a gospel act, questions like ‘is it now a Christian competition’ will be asked. The secular world know how to set their boundaries, let the faith based platforms set theirs as well.
