Bishop Mosa Sono of Grace Bible Church has raised eyebrows in a video that has gone viral. This comes after the leader of the church in Soweto was filmed comparing church musicians to car guards. In the video, he says musicians are volunteers and the only difference between them and the guards is that they’re seen on stage. He says the church was growing and they couldn’t pay every musician.
The bishop told Daily Sun what he meant was that the church was run by volunteers, including musicians. He said church car guards were professional people who were volunteering. Singer Brenda Mtambo, who isn’t a member of the church but posted the video, said the bishop’s remarks were disturbing.
“Imagine the skills these musicians bring compared to car guards. Don’t attack me, but I disagree with all due respect.” She said she received threatening emails demanding she remove the video.
Musician Mpumi also commented on the video. “The mentality of just taking from congregants is wrong. There is nothing wrong with the church paying members on duty. Most church leaders’ lifestyles are funded by money from the church. Making music is a rare talent and it plays a big role at the church, so it isn’t the same as parking attendance services.
