News coming in from the ex-secular music Ghanaian singer, Ofori Amponsah has it that; most gospel songs in Ghana today are stupid. He defended his views in an interview and went ahead to condemn some Ghanaian pastors.
Ghanaians do remember Mr. Ofori Amponsah as ‘Mr. All For Real’ who dominated the music industry with his love and seductive songs before 2013.
Henceforth, he has been known as a man of God who has converted to the true Christian faith —thus shunning the secular music he was so good at.
The story of his music career took another turn when Ofori Amponsah, went into the world again to entertain fans with secular music again with the hit song ‘Pastor Alowa.’ He failed as a pastor.
Ghanaians couldn’t understand his real mission of going back and forth with both worldly music and Christian songs.
Today he has come out to say that most Ghanaian gospel songs are meaningless. In an interview with the popular comedian-actor, Kwaku Manu —hosted on Onua TV, ‘Mr. All For Real’ said that his secular songs inspire more than some supposed gospel songs in Ghana.
He threw more light on the power of love using Biblical references. Love is what most of his secular songs cover. In an attempt to justify that he said:
“The first thing God created was love, so if I am not able to satisfy my lover musically, how can I satisfy God, whom I’ve never seen.”
“If I sing sorrowful songs, what does the listener gain from them. Yesterday I was saying most of the gospel songs they do are stupid.”
Ofori Amponsah looks obsessed with the nature of the Ghanaian gospel songs together with certain so-called pastors.
He spoke his mind against them.
“I can confidently tell you I even preach better than a lot of the pastors in Ghana.“
The Highlife artist is talking about the word of God by making comparisons with himself and others in the Christian entertainment industry.
He again criticized the kind of content gospel singers in Ghana produce —saying they are irrelevant to the true word of God.
“A lot of the acclaimed gospel musicians lack the content when it comes to the word of God. Most of their songs are not gospel. They’re doing foolish songs.”
Many Ghanaians have responded to this by rubbishing the criticism from ‘Mr. All For Real’.
He has been known to be unstable in his professional career; Hence lacking trust and respect from many Ghanaians.
