Collabos between artists have been ongoing for a while since the discovery of music, however, there has always been a question with gospel artists working with secular artists.
The reactions to this have differed with different artists and their views are varying. Gospel Artist Size 8 had her say in an interview when this question was brought up.

The Afadhali Yesu singer noted that they have to pray first for the song before working on it.
“Nitawaambia kwanza twende pale madhabau tuombe collabo kwanza, after tumeomba tuingie studio tutoe genge la mziki lakini neno la yesu liwe ndani kabisa kwa sababu as long as kitu iko na neno la Mungu na inabeba yesu sina shida.
on another note, she said that the song must contain the word of God as it is the work of gospel artists to spread God’s word.
“Kwa sababu hata kanisani tunaimbanga na hujui mwenye ako next ako aje. Shida tu ni song isikuwe haina neno. The word is the most important not the person who is singing necessarily, si mavazi yake, si outlook, si nini. Sisi Gospel artistes tumeitiwa vitu mbili, one to worship God in spirit and truth, number two, to spread the word of God,” said Size 8.
