Gospel singer Size 8 says an upcoming gospel reality show is another win for the industry after the election of religious leaders.
She and other gospel ministers are featured in the show, called 'Oh, Sister'.
Speaking to Word Is, Size 8 said while there is heavy backlash, the gospel is also winning.
"The media mostly highlights the negatives since that is what sells, but like right now, for the very first time, we have an all-gospel cast on TV, something that has never happened," she said.
The other gospel celebs featured are: Millicent Wambui (Milly Wa Jesus), Beatrice Wanjiku (Betty Bayo), Bernice Nduko (Lady Bee), Veronica Mushana (Nicah the Queen) Janet Otieno and Priscilla Maina.
A few months ago, Eric Omondi called out gospel musicians for allegedly killing the industry because of controversy.
The controversial comedian alleged that most had stopped singing and keeping the industry relevant.
In a viral video on Instagram, he further alleged that the most immoral people in Kenya are former gospel artistes.
Size 8 said the reality show is a testimony that they are working behind the scenes.
"It all depends on what people are watching," she said.
"In this country, we have not had leaders who love God that much like the ones we have right now. We have not had a first lady who loves God this much, and we are happy."
Size 8 further said the ministry is at a season where God is lifting Himself.
Maisha Magic East is set to announce when the new reality show will start showing.
"I am just being me in the show. It has everything. Education, drama, fun and spirituality. It is a day in the life of a normal Christian woman," she said.
The show will also feature the female gospel ministers' husbands.
