Changed over Afropop pin-up, Eugene Jackson has cried foul over claims that he is pastoring a church in South Africa, saying as a result some of his clients are now reluctant to give him gigs.

 The award-winning vocalist recently moved to South Africa where he said he was studying music and working on his next album.Recent media reports were that he was allegedly on the verge of starting a ministry. Perhaps because of the way churches are mushrooming nowadays, the 'joke' was taken seriously."I'm shocked people have taken that seriously, I had a lot of people asking me that through social network sites.This has actually cost me business because some clients assume that I no longer sing," Jackson told Showbiz.

Jackson was in the country last weekend to perform at a corporate event and revealed his clients actually mentioned they hesitated to give him the gig because of news that he was now a pastor.He emphasised he was still in the music business and singing the same music that catapulted him to stardom, adding that being a Christian does not stop him from singing non-gospel songs.
