Highlife legend Samuel Ofori Amponsah, otherwise known as Ofori Amponsah has recounted his early days as a devoted Christian who once worshipped with the Abeka District of the Church of Pentecost.
Speaking in a recent interview on Kofi TV, Ofori Amponsah disclosed that he was a devoted worshipper at church before he discovered his talent as a highlife artist.
“I worshipped with the Church of Pentecost, Abeka District until I found my new love in writing love songs. I never knew I would become Ofori Amponsah.”
He was however quick to say add that he is still close to God and that one should be closer to God at all times so that life would not be meaningless.
“I later discovered that I can write love songs. People didn’t know that I started fellowship before becoming Ofori Amponsah. I love prayers and fellowship. One thing I would like to make clear is that life without GOD is difficult.”
Ofori Amponsah further bemoaned that his whole life was brought to a standstill after he was betrayed by a close friend.
“The only thing I could remember at that moment was to pray. I was there one day when a prophet called me and advised me that if I don’t run to God, nothing will work out well for me,” he stated.
In 2013, Amponsah made the decision to leave secular music. He released a gospel album in 2014 called The Gospel According to Ofori.
His decision included becoming a pastor. He founded the Family of Faith and Love Ministries to spread the word of God.
He however failed as a Pastor and went back to doing secular music.
After announcing his decision to go back to secular music, he began rehearsing and preparing his fans for a new experience and new image for his future performances.
