In these parts of the world we have those who do generally love music, but there are also those who pick and choose songs so as not to conflict with their religious believes.
In recent times even gospel musicians have embraced the idea of collaborating with secular musicians.
But if you are a Christian who does not like secular music, then just relax. There are actually some secular songs that you can enjoy without conflicting your believes.
The lyrics of such songs rather seek to inspire, whiles others also seek to tell the stories of life.
Here are six secular songs that Christians can also enjoy:
1. Kofi Kinaata (Susuka)
This song is one of the most inspiring songs to be released in the last 24 months. The lyrics talk about how one not duel on the present but also strive to make it in future.
The key theme of the track is to remind people that there is something called “the future” and whatever their situation, it could change tomorrow.
It also preaches about condemnation. The lyrics advices against judging others.
2. Shatta Wale (Taking Over)
Shatta Wale’s taking over did not just become a hit song by chance. The track actually has an element of empowering people to strive to make it in life.
The lyrics speak about trying to take Ghana to the next level through music and through any other field that you find yourself.
3. Okyeame Kwame Ft Abochi (Hallelujah)
This song is actually Gospel by its nature. Okyeame Kwame simply took the old “hallelujah” song and refined it with some beats to make it his own.
However, the message of the song is clear, as it seeks to praise God for whatever he had done and has been doing.
4. Sarkodie ft Castro (Adonai)
The song “Adonai” by Sarkodie became one of the most listen to across Ghana when it was released. This is because it was a departure from the secular music that we are used to.
The lyrics talk about how one needs to rely on God in all times as we look to make it in life. It also eulogises God for nis all powerful nature.

5. Stonebwoy (Go Higher)
As the title suggests. This song simply challenges people to forget about all the obstacles in life and rather focus on climbing the ladder of life.
The lyrics clearly inspire and motivate people to be go-getters in life.
6. Becca (African Woman)
Becca’s African Woman is a song that praises women from this part of the globe. For a continent that is largely seen as inferior, this song seeks that dislodge such a notion and also highlights the importance of mothers.
The lyrics emphasise on the roles mothers play with their caring hearts in the life of their children.
