Veteran Ghanaian gospel musician, Rev Mensah Bonsu, has revealed that most Ghanaian religious leaders parading themselves as pastors are wicked.
According to the musician, he has suffered ‘real hell’ in the hands of many Ghanaian ‘men of God’ who are very successful today.
Speaking on Accra-based Onua FM, as monitored by Abrantepa.com, Rev Mensah Bonsu who was clearly peeved, described some of them as ‘humans with no hearts’.
Sharing his life experience as a veteran gospel singer, Rev Bonsu started that a lot of Ghanaian pastors use gospel musicians to grow their ministries, and dump them when they become successful.
“My colleague pastors are wicked. They are very wicked. You’ll sing from morning to evening and they won’t give you common malt. When you bid them farewell, they say ‘May the Lord be with you’. May who be with me?” he angrily queried to the amazement of many listeners.
The musician in his radio conversation noted that the conducts of some ‘men of God’ are so distasteful that he was sidelined by his own Church leaders when he released his first album.
“When you complain in secrecy and they pay no heed to you, you tell them your mind when an opportunity [to be on radio] comes your way. Their conduct is distasteful. When I released ‘Yehowa Ne M’abankese’, I presented the album to my church, suggested that they promote it and use the profit for the construction of a chapel; they ignored me. God is my witness,” Rev. Mensah Bonsu disclosed.
The once famous musician who appears to have gone on the low, stressed that he has written a number of songs, but is unable to release them due to funding.
Rev. Bonsu added that the dynamism of music promotion has changed, therefore he is finding it difficult to have executive producers as it was the case in the past to help him release his new songs.
