Ofori Amponsah believes that the majority of Ghanaian gospel songs are devoid of any real substance or significance.

As revealed in an interview with Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu, which was shown on Onua TV, the highlife singer argues that his secular songs are more inspirational than certain alleged Christian songs in Ghana.

During a recent interview about his love songs, the former clergyman stated that “love was the first thing God created, so how can I possibly satisfy God, whom I’ve never seen?” If he is unable to satisfy his lover musically, the former clergyman asks, “How can I possibly satisfy God, whom I’ve never seen?

“What does the listener get from listening to me sing sad songs?” I wonder. ‘I was just remarking the other day that a lot of the gospel tunes they perform are dumb,’ he said.

“A lot of the recognized gospel performers lack the substance when it comes to the word of God,” says the singer of the hit song “Nothing But Love. ” The majority of their songs are not gospel in nature…. Their silly tunes” are being performed by them.”

A barb at certain Ghanaian pastors was also included in his remarks: “I can safely tell you that I preach even better than a lot of the pastors in Ghana”. For the Highlife, this isn’t the first time they’ve brought up the subject of God’s word.

Ofori Amponsah founded a church in 2013 after claiming that God had called him to be a pastor. However, he did not seem to have made the call his full-time vocation, as he resumed to his previous job of performing cyclical music in churches.

Regarding his reversal, he told Delay on the Delay Show that, although he had been called by God to perform his job, he did not have a calling to be a preacher, which was one of the reasons he returned to the secular music industry.
