Multiple award winning Highlife artist, Ofori Amponsah has blasted some of the songs Ghanaian gospel musicians produce, saying his secular music are far better in the eyes if the lord than what they do.
Speaking to actor Kwaku Many on his Aggressive Talk show, Ofori Amponsah said love is the ultimate thing that should be the core components in our lives and that’s what he sings about.
“A Gospel song with lyrics such as ‘God why have you created me this way?’ and ‘I am suffering’ is such a silly song. If I talk about loving your wife and staying faithful to her I believe I am preaching something better,” he said.
He explained that the lyrics of his songs have a more positive impact on individuals rather than him shouting Hallelujah when he doesn’t mean what he is saying.
“God is love and there is nothing wrong with singing love songs. I reflected upon all the positive things my love songs have accomplished and decided to come back and continue giving Ghanaians great love songs.
“The church is full of hypocrites and the men of God are into all sorts of things. If you look at what is going on in the church you will not even go to church or worship God,” he added.
