A Senior Pastor at the St. James Baptist Church in Kumasi, Rev. George Owusu Mensah has accused Evangelist Diana Asamoah of stealing his song titled "Agya Ma Wo Nsa So".

Speaking on Ultimate 'Inspiration and Gospel Chat' hosted by Winfred Daniel Nii Adjaye, he indicated that Evangelist Diana Asamoah made the song her own and commercialised it after agreeing to pay a fee.

According to Rev Owusu Mensah, he composed the song "Agya Ma Wo Nsa So" years ago but the respected gospel musician stole the song and refused to give him any credit.

He recounted how Diana Asamoah approached him with the prospect of doing a remix of his song. She returned later and said the song was now public so there was no point paying him any money.

He said he willingly gave the song to the Evangelist but spat on his face.

“After helping her to re-arrange the song, she recorded the song, but came back only to say the song was in the public domain and that there was no point showing gratitude or giving credit to me the composer,” he said.

“She said one pastor told her that the song was a public domain, in other words, I didn’t write the song, and that I told her a lie, maybe a thief as well,’ he narrated.

He disclosed to host Winfred Daniel Nii Adjaye, that he was not angry with Evangelist Diana Asamoah’s comment.

 “I didn’t feel insulted by her comment. It didn’t break me down. She told me she has paid artistes like Prof. Kofi Abraham but she cannot pay mine, she’s comfortable like that,” he expressed.

Rev. George Owusu Mensah indicated that there are a majority of gospel artistes who have disrespected him by taking his songs for free.

He cited that he called ‘Jane and Bernice’ when they took one of his songs saying he collected some monies from them after some interventions by some pastors.

“She was apologetic, but I told her songs don’t drop from heaven, songs are given to men and sometimes the men may be alive and that she should have found out the owner of that song,” he stated.

Rev. Owusu Mensah further accused Akwasi Nyarko of taking his song without crediting him.

Evangelist Diana Asamoah and Akwasi Nyarko refused to comment on the claims when they were called on phone. He wrote ‘Se Me Te Ase’ for Rev Mrs Emmy Newman for a fee.
