This past weekend, Diamond and Bahati shared one stage when they performed at the Game Tosha launch in Thika.

The show raised an interesting question? Should a gospel musician and a secular musician share a stage? I don’t think it should be a problem and many Kenyans feel the same way.

One verse that is used to push the argument against the secular and gospel musicians doing collabos together is 2 Cor. 7:14-18:

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?

Don’t forget the furor that followed Kirk Franklin when he did a collabo with Kanye West. He responded by saying:

Kanye is not me. I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with. No sprints, but marathons; like most of us are on.

He added:

I will not turn my back on my brother. I will love him, prayerfully grow with him. However long he’ll have me, and however long the race takes. To a lot of my Christian family, I’m sorry he’s not good enough, Christian enough, or running at your pace…and as I read some of your comments, neither am I. That won’t stop me from running. Pray we win.

What do you think? Do you see it as an issue if a secular artist and a gospel musician share a stage or do a collabo together?
