Popular Ghanaian musician, Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah, widely known as Akwaboah, has disclosed that his church pastor helped him in choosing secular music as a career.
According to the musician, his pastor prophesied to him that his calling was to do secular music and not gospel.
Another Ghanaian singer, Kurl Songx has recently raised concerns about how he was being criticized by some church members because of the type of music he has chosen to do.
However, Akwaboah in an interview with Hitz FM’s Andy Dosty revealed that, even though he had recorded both a gospel and secular albums, he was caught up in a dilemma about the kind of music to pursue as a career.
But his pastor helped him in choosing a career in secular music over gospel.
“The thing is that my pastor believes in everyone’s destiny; we all can’t be pastors; we all can’t be bankers. Initially, I wanted to do gospel songs so I did a gospel album but I also recorded a secular album so I was confused as to which side I should stand for,” he said.
The singer who is currently signed onto Sarkodie’s SarkCess music label added that, “My pastor was prophesying… and he called me and told me that my calling was to do secular music.”
Akwaboah who recently released ‘Matters of the Heart’, a 12-track album, also has a gospel song, 'Worship (Medley)' on the album.
