Ghanaian highlife singer, Ofori Amponsah has said that most Ghanaian gospel songs are stupid and meaningless. The former clergyman in interview aired on Onua TV, claimed that his secular songs inspire people more than some gospel songs in Ghana. Ofori 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. “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“.Ofori Amponsah also took a jab at some Ghanaian pastors, saying;
“I can confidently tell you I even preach better than a lot of the pastors in Ghana“. This wouldn’t be the first time the Highlife is talking about the word of God.
