Few weeks ago, pastor cum highlife artiste Ofori Amponsah became talk of the town after he released his new single “Alewa” which featured multiple award-winning artiste Sarkodie.
Just when everybody thought the issue has gone to sleep for him to have his peace of mind and write more songs, Highlife artiste turned evangelist, Papa Shee has sent him a message from his USA residence.
Papa Shee in an interview with Dave Hammer on Hello FM in Kumasi said there is no way a highlife artiste will be in heaven unless the person repents.
“You can never defend your sins. You cannot sing highlife and tell me you are singing for God because He gave you the talent. It is God who gives talent but the devil searches for people with such talents and make them misuse these talents God has given them. The devil makes them use their talent to glorify worldly things. If you give yourself to the world, you have forsaken God.
You cannot serve two masters. I cannot sing highlife and call myself a Son of God, call whoever tells you that a liar.”
The “Atadwe” hitmaker further said, “if Christ comes today….tell my brother (Ofori Amponsah) that he should have a change of mind. You cannot sing highlife or worldly song and be in heaven, it is impossible
Which spirit inspires secular artistes for their songs? Worldly things inspire these musicians who are always happy writing worldly songs. I used to defend these things but I had a change of mind when I met God”
