Ghanaian Rapper, Michael Elliot Kwabena Okyere aka Obrafour, has admitted he doesn’t see why Christians should label or judge some artistes and their songs as profane or secular that cannot be used to glorify God in the various churches.
Speaking in an inspiring conversation with DJ Roar, the host of Kumasi based Kessben FM’s Entertainment Cirkle via telephone, the rapper claims that so long as the lyrical content portrays the Holiness of God, it should qualify to be used during Church service.
According to him, the Bible nowhere condemns any particular style of music. Thus, there is no biblical basis to declare any particular style of music to be secular or outside of God’s will.
He, therefore, dares Christians to stop judging and leave everything to our maker.
“The reality is that, so long as the lyrical content portrays the Holiness of God, it should qualify to be used during Church service. I don’t know why Christians brings in the various divisions. What does secular means? Meanwhile, the so called ‘gospel musicians’ and the secular ones all dwells on planet earth. See, the lifestyle of some secular musicians are more pleasing to God than the so called gospel artistes”.
“Everything depends on the heart. Christians have no right to categorize songs as gospel and secular. Per Biblical evidence, David was supposed to be killed after seducing Bathsheba but God saved him. This means, only God has the right to judge. The same Christians are present at clubs, so what they’re doing is a mere hypocrisy at the zenith level”.
This assertion by Obrafour presupposes that his current inspiring song titled “Aseda” should be used by Christians during Church service.
