Multiple award-winning highlife musician, Ofori Amponsah popularly known as Pastor Alewa has finally reacted to how he felt after he wasn’t able to quote just one Bible verse when he was interviewed by Bola Ray on Starr Fm some months back.
During the interview, Bola Ray asked Ofori Amponsah what his favourite verse in the Bible is and added that he should quote the Bible verse. Answering the question, Ofori Amponsah said, “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved."
Asked by Bola Ray where in the Bible that verse could be located, Amponsah embarrassingly responded: “I can’t give you the exact place it can be found.”
When asked by Jessica Opare-Saforo on Celebrity Fanzone as to how he felt after he wasn’t able to quote the Bible verse and how people started making fun of him being a self-acclaimed Pastor, and cannot even quote one Bible verse, he said,
“I thought quoting of Bible verse is for children. This is how I read the Bible; I read the Bible from my heart, I just don’t memorize it. It’s like reading it and practicing what it says, I don’t lay much emphasis on memorizing the verses.”
On whether his family supported his decision on going back to do secular music, he said, “Actually I desire what I want to do. It is my personal decision and I have the final say, so yes, they supported it, and I sing about love.”
Ofori Amponsah, however, revealed that all is set for him to release a song with MOBO award winner, Samini very soon.
