Ofori Amponsah who had wowed Ghanaians with his love songs declared in 2012 that he had received a ‘divine call’ to become a pastor. He noted he had parted ways with secular music and would be singing about the love of Christ in order to win souls.
"I run away from God around 2008. Before that, God had told me that I will go out into the world and make it but in the next ten years, I will come back to Him. I made it but I forgot the call. The time was just up. I had to go. When you sing such songs, you lie to the people. So I can’t lie. I don’t have anything to achieve. Those times are gone," he said in an interview with Delay years ago.
Contrary to his statements, Ofori Amponsah is back to highlife claiming that the secular music space will provide him with a bigger opportunity to spread the gospel. He has subsequently released a song titled which features Sarkodie.
Nicholas Omane Acheampong in an interview with Abrantepa on Radio Univers’ mid-morning show, , said if Ofori Amponsah made such a comment and has returned to where he used to be, then he does not know what he is about.
“You said you were in darkness and God called you. Was that not what he said? So if you have gone back to the darkness, it means you don’t know what you are doing,” he said.
Meanwhile management of Ofori Amponsah has conceded that it has let the artiste cum pastor down.
