Outspoken Ghanaian musician, Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, popularly known as Mzbel, seems to have had enough of religious controversies.
The musician has in the recent past expressed disbelief in the Christian Messiah, Jesus Christ, and has described Christianity as idol worshipping.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC), loyalist has taken it a step further, describing speaking in tongues as utter nonsense.
In a new song titled , ‘Tongues’, produced by Hydraulix, Mzbel, begins with a few lines in a strange language – considered tongues.
While responding to why she was poking fun at Christians and tongue-speaking, she said: “Tongues itself is played. It is very silly… when you go to church and speak in tongues, it is senseless”.
The controversial musician speaking on Takoradi-based Connect FM on Monday explained that the Bible states nowhere that people should say things they cannot understand while praying.
“People would say that on the day of Pentecost, the disciples spoke in new languages, but when you read further…they only spoke languages either than their mother tongues,” she insisted.
Mzbel in her conversation noted that it was so to enable the disciples to preach the gospel to other nations as they had been charged to do.
She further indicated that on the day of Pentecost when the disciples received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and spoke in new tongues, there were persons in the crowds who could identify and understand the languages being spoken.
The singer further mocked how some Christians forced themselves to speak in ‘tongues’.
To her, praying in a language that no one can identify and understand must be a silly joke.
She however admonished people to pray from their hearts and in understandable languages and shun the “nonsense” of tongues speaking.
