Gospel Artistes manager and board member of Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO), Ernest Kwasi Enim has reacted to videos of the founder and leader of Anointed Palace Chapel, Reverend Obofuor singing secular songs in his church.
The Media Excel Production Boss described the Asanteman Bofour’s attitude as ’21st Century Madaness’.
Speaking as pundit on the Christian Entertainment Review show on GNTV, Kwasi Ernest stated that the kind of secular songs sang by the man of God in his church contrary to what the scripture says about how believers should act in accordance to the Biblical principles.
“I think he (Rev. Obofour), using his platform and telling church members to be singing songs from Shatta Wale and others in church, for it is 21st Century madness. Gospel is the word of God so we need to follow what the word says and not contrary to that. The Bible states clearly that anyone who wants to proclaim the name of Lord must portray a character like Christ.
“If we should allow certain behaviours in churches, then one of this days you will see people smoking shisha in churches.” Kwasi Ernest said
Reverend Obofuor in the video described Dancehall Artist Shatta Wale as the nation’s prophet and the greatest preacher Ghana has ever seen.
The controversial preacher called on God to bless Shatta Wale. Singing some of Shatta Wale’s song in a live band performance at his church, Reverend Obofuor quizzed his members if wee smoke is coming from his speakers as he sings Shatta Wale’s song.
Reverend Obofuor has been in the news for all kinds of controversial actions. This is not the first time he has gone viral for singing worldly songs in his church.
A few weeks ago, he thrilled his congregation with a live band performance of Amakye Dede’s songs.
The Christian Entertainment Review show is hosted by Nii Noi every Saturday from 5:30pm to 7pm.
