We also like secular music-Pastors reveal

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Even though most Christians see secular music as profane and against

the word of God, some Rev. Ministers have confessed enjoying such

songs whenever they hear them played on radio.

In an interview with Kwamina Idanon Adom FM, one of the pastors, Rev.

Abraham Lamptey, founder of the Believers House of Worship, confessed

that he loved listening to some secular music, particularlySamini's

song ' Se Obi D) woa'.

"I dont play with my Samini, I always love listening to his songs", he


He further said, he would attend his (Samini) shows if he invites him(pastor).

According to him, pastors also equally have inner feelings like other

ordinary persons and they also have to deal with the criticismfrom


"If you accept that we are human and you will get closer to understand

what we are going through as pastors you will help the outsiders

understand what we go through and you will go a long way to heal us.

Pastors are very lonely, very very lonely – hmm we are suffering o",

he sadly revealed.

Rev Lamptey acknowledged that some secular songs are inspirational and

sometimes brings happiness to the soul but 'protocol' would advise

them not to listen to such songs.

"It is even difficult for some of us to experience outdoor programmes

apart from church'", he added.

Some other pastors like Apostle Oko Hackman of International

Deliverance Prayer Center, Prophet Alex Twum of Word Vision Church

also shared their heartfelt feeling on the same platform in concert

with Rev. Lamtey Disclosing his favourite circular musician, Apostle

Oko, said he enjoyed Kojo Antwi's songs particularly his 'Me nya

Ntaban' song while Prophet Twum loves Amakye Dede's 'Bebrebe yi'. The

duo, said, going to experience shows of these secular artistes was a

problem due to the audience, who would express surprise and quickly

spread their presence in the media for them to be criticized.

"Going to such shows is not bad but at times we should also look at

the concept of the show, the kind of dressing, so us pastors can also

attend", Apostle Oko said.
