The head pastor and founder of the Word Vision Chapel International, Prophet Alex Twum, has disclosed that he would gleefully welcome controversial dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale to minister to his church members. According to the ‘Man of God’, he sees nothing wrong if a secular musician wants to use his God-given gift to minister in the church.
Corroborating a recent statement made by the popular secular musician, Kurl Songx that before taking to hiplife, he was praises and worship leader at Grace Aflame Chapel Ghana in Adabraka, Accra. But after going secular music, some of his church members give him weird look anytime he picks the microphone to minister in the church. However, Prophet Twum speaking to Accra-based Zylofon FM indicated that it is rude for believers to act in such manner towards secular artists who come to church. “If Shatta Wale comes to tell me God has touched his heart to sing a worship song, I’ll be so glad and allow him to minister to God’s people.” Prophet Ale Twum revealed. To him, it is no one’s business to judge secular artists, since nobody is righteous on this earth. Prophet Twum revealed that Kurl Songx attended one of the church’s services and allowed him to perform to the members.
The prophet further labeled ‘Men of God’ fond of rebuking non-religious members of their church as immature and are rather not helping to shape the lives of the artists. “The Bible says we shouldn’t judge so I can’t speak against the talent of any secular artiste. Most of the songs by these artists inspire so many people because of the words in it. I don’t know why some Pastors will prevent such people from attending their church…” “When you read 1 Corinthians, it talks about the gifts from God. If Kojo Antwi should lead a worship in my church and goes ahead to compose his love songs, I see nothing wrong with it,” he said. Prophet Twum further added that “If a pastor tells a member who does secular music not to help the church with his or talents, then that pastor isn’t matured enough. We’re all learning and there’s no one perfect so such pastors should be very careful”.
