    Musician should be paid or not is individual decision but even though the individual decides to play for free the ministry should support and encourage them because musician also have their personal issue
    Musician should also think beyond playing for church they can start up and academy,studio production or medium where we can make money during the lockdown musician suffered alot
    we should think outside the church

    Musicians plying their trade should be duly paid. There are no two ways to it. They should be compensated appropriately. Music is an art. A disclpline, a profession. why does one need to have a profession? To cater for his well being. So, the job of playing in church should be rewarding in that aspect. Does the priest get paid? Yes? The traditional idea of treating musicians with disdain should be totally discouraged. Evaluatehe idea of seing musicians as Alagbe should end. Musicians serious art. The contributions of a musician to the totality of church service, you discorver they are the most essential. Can a church service be held without a sermon? I say yes. But can a service be held without music I say No. So why won’t such a man in charge of the music be paid? A musician in a church is a minister. It is another thing if the musician volunteers his pay. One can also imagine the number of hours put into music learning before one can excel.
