According a recent post on his Instagram page, revered American gospel music artist and pastor of prominent Brooklyn New York megachurch, Bishop Hezekiah Walker is ”RESPECTFULLY BOWING OUT!”. Here is his post on his Instagram page @bishophez last Thursday;

“RESPECTFULLY BOWING OUT!

I normally don’t use social media for what I’m about to say but the elephant in the room can’t be ignored anymore at least not by me.
I’m extremely tired of these so called GATEKEEPERS who think they have a monopoly over the Industry and Pulpit. Their managers, publicist, teams,
along with themselves are silently competitive and hide behind kindness when they are in your company as they work earnestly to keep you away from their platforms and level of fame. Be aware of managers, publicist and teams that will pitch you to compete with other artists or pastors based on negativity and lies that are brought to you by them to boost your ego. This group normally have GRACE for some and CRUCIFY others. These GATEKEEPERS are so desperate to keep fame and status until they manipulate and cover a platform that actually belongs to God. You guys can have it I’m done with it and them!”

It is quite obvious that its a tug of war to be relevant in the music industry in general and people do all kinds of things to stay “relevant”, however it seems the gospel music industry is not being exempted from that dirty politics.

Tho a lot of questions come to our mind after reading the post by Hezekiah Walker – as it is quite unclear exactly what he is “Bowing Out” from, it seems however undeniable that it has something to do with the music industry and is highly assumed he is bowing out of it. Is he bowing out of gospel music? as in stop singing and recording ?
