It is indeed true that When the Lord calls , one must Listen. A lot of people who one could never think they could become Preachers of the word later became pastors and Evangelists. Even in the Bible, the story of Paul who was formerly Saul tells us a lot about Gods calling.
In this article, we want to take a look at some Ghanaian celebrities who were later called by God to do His works and what happened later in their lives.
Dont forget to comment and like at the end of the article.
Abraham Philip Akpor Kenya was the winner of the Hiplife Album Of The Year at the Ghana Music Awards 2001, winner of the Best Ghanaian (Rap Music) Award at the Anansekrom Festival in Canada 2000, and earned a string of nominations elsewhere. Lord Kenya’s musical career was cut short, though, when he received a divine message he just couldn’t blue tick. He’s now a pastor at Jesus Power Church.
Perhaps the name Lord was given to him for a purpose. Little did one know the hit maker could turn around and preach against music and bad lyrical messages in music. Well, we wish him a good journey in the Lord’s work.
2. Ofori Amponsah.
Ofori Amponsah is the only person in this list that became born again and then switched back to secular. As a secular musician Ofori Amponsah was by no means lacking when it came to awards. According to him he had lost touch with his faith hence the switch to gospel. He announced his return to Hip Life in 2015 saying it wouldn’t conflict with his responsibilities as a pastor.
Isaac Okai, who is popularly known for his debut hit ‘Wope Dodo’ in 2011, survived a gory accident in 2013. After the accident he had to be on his back for three months in a device called a hallow vest. The vest was screwed to his head and left him unable to bath himself for three months. Yaw, as he prefers to be called now, is now a preacher. He preaches in trotros and between lanes in communities.
Nii Soul got his start in music through the reality talent show Mentor, on which he went by the name Joe. He switched drastically to gospel after a falling out with his then label boss Lawrence Asiamah Hanson, a.k.a Bulldog. Nii claims the falling out with Bulldog and his exit from BullHaus Entertainment had nothing to do with his shift to gospel.
5.Omar Sheriff Captan
According to former Tinsel star Omar Sheriff Captan, he decided to become a pastor after he miraculously prayed to heal his little sister who was suffering from convulsions. He continued to say that he wasn’t going to quit acting, though. Omar starred in movies such as Outrage and Dark Sands. He is married with one kid.
Born Victor Kpakpo Jnr, Azigiza Jnr’s Rap style earned him both international and local recognition. Even though he has currently given his life to Christ and is focusing on evangelism he says he is not going to give up the name Azigiza Jnr. “Most people who knew me since my school days hardly know my real name, especially when this was made popular during my stint as a disc jockey and a showbiz man”, he explained
These people answered the Devine call and we should learn that anyone can always be called. We should however be ready when the Lord calls.
