High-life great, Ofori Amponsah has described some gospel songs produced in this country as silly and fraught with nonsensical themes.
The serial hitmaker and multiple award winning artist said his love-themed songs even make more sense than what these known Gospel artists churn out, during an interview with Kwaku Many on Aggressive Talk show.
“A Gospel song with lyrics such as ‘God why have you created me this way?’ and ‘I am suffering’ is such a silly song. If I talk about loving your wife and staying faithful to her I believe I am preaching something better,” he said.
He explained the lyrical composition wields much ‘gospel’ than the unnecessary shouting and noise the artists make.
“God is love and there is nothing wrong with singing love songs. I reflected upon all the positive things my love songs have accomplished and decided to come back and continue giving Ghanaians great love songs.
“The church is full of hypocrites and the men of God are into all sorts of things. If you look at what is going on in the church you will not even go to church or worship God,” he said.
