In a statement by U-cheena, the producer of the show ‘’98% of secular musicians are Christians who got their career boost while singing in the church, and based on their individual vocational assessment, they were certified as great talented musicians, but absence of potential sponsorship within Nigerian Christian community literally deprived them opportunities in gospel music hence the reason they subscribed to secular music which attracts sponsorship based on its societal acceptance and moral decadence in the Nigerian community and entertainment sector’’.
