Sonnie Badu is a liar – Editor of ‘News One’

The Editor of 'News One' newspaper has

described renowned gospel artist Sonnie Badu as

a liar for denying it was his (Sonnie Badu's)

voice on a recording where the artist is alleged

to have stated that a lot of Ghanaian gospel

musicians sing "nonsense" and call it gospel.

Halifax Ansah in an interview with Braa Chef on

Brunch2lunch, the mid-morning show on Radio

Univers on Tuesday described Sonnie Badu as

someone with a lying personality if he (Sonnie

Badu) was insisting that he never made

statements that implied that many Ghanaian

gospel songs do not make sense.

According to Mr. Ansah, Sonnie Badu made

those comments at a press conference he

organised some two years ago. He went on to

add that if the story he had published wasn't

true, "why would he (Sonnie Badu) send two

people to come plead with me to stop running

the story?"

According to the editor of the newspaper, one

gospel artist and a movie personality came

pleading with him to stop running the story

since it was destroying the internationally

acclaimed gospel singer's reputation.

In his quest to corroborate his earlier words in

the said interview, Halifax said "sometimes

certain people just want to force us to say things

we don't want to say. He said he was going to

have a press conference today, ask him why he

has still not been able to have it. He should be

explaining to people why certain artists pulled

out of the concert.

He should explain why the likes of Cwesi Oteng

and Ohemaa Mercy pulled out of his show at the

very last minute, look, he shouldn't force some

of us to say things."

The editor of the newspaper was reacting to a

social media post by gospel artist Sonnie Badu

which described a story published by News One

as falsehood.

Below are some excerpts of Sonnie Badu's

quotes on social media

"It's been drawn to our attention that there is a

news circulation that I said this and that about

Ghanaian gospel artistes. Well, first of all I am a

big fan of Ghana gospel music and I would never

say such a thing …" he said.

The renowned gospel musician continued, "It's

quite sad that upon the victory God gave us all

on Saturday, someone tries to destroy what God

is doing. It's sad that in your own country

instead of people appreciating your efforts they

are doing all they can to destroy what God is


Sonnie Badu clarified that, "Once again I am a

big fan of Ghana gospel music and I will

continue in my own little way to let the world

know about this beautiful country."

In response to the newspaper's publication, the

artiste said "The sad thing is that the newspaper

that released that false news was media partners

who were paid to talk about the show. Still I say

thank you to them for all their support but it's

my cross and I will carry it. Kwame Nkrumah

was never appreciated by his own until he died."
