Hiplife musician gone gospel, Lord Kenya, says he is happy for fellow musician, Ofori Amponsah for turning a new leaf and joining the gospel train.
According to Evangelist Lord Kenya, no one should regret that Ofori Amponsah is now preaching the Word of God instead of singing secular songs.
“I don’t understand why anyone should berate him”, he said. “Ofori Amponsah is born again and Ghanaians should just understand that. God has time for everyone and if God has called him to do his work, we should rather rally behind him and not criticize him”.
Evang. Lord Kenya described Prophet Ofori Amponsah as a great testimony to have left his worldly life since he claimed it wasn’t easy for him leaving his past.
“I had to wake up early in the morning everyday to look for ‘wee’ to smoke which nearly destroyed my life but if by His grace, I’ve been saved from the hands of the devil, I should be happy for my brother as well.”
Lord Kenya (real name Abraham Philip Akpor) told Showbiz that people who knew him doubted him at first when they heard that he was born again but as time went on; they realized that he had actually been called by God.
Lord Kenya, however, revealed that he was not happy with radio presenters who expect him to paymoney to them before his gospel songs are played.
According to him, radio presenters should gladly play his gospel song as they did when he was doing secular music than asking for ‘Payola’.
“Radio presenters were chasing after my songs when I was doing secular music, but if today I am born again and now doing gospel song; I don’t understand why they should refuse to play my songs without asking for money”.
He said it was his wish that those who don’t know Christ would get to know his music and repent through his songs.nHe said two songs from his current album, “Christ’s Life”, talks about how God changed him from a sinner to a born again.
Evang. Lord Kenya says he has no regrets about the past because he believes certain things have to be in place for new things to happen.
