In one of the most unique ways to explain the belief that cleanliness is next to godliness, gospel and inspirational music singer Mayor The Bass thinks God doesn't hear the prayers of Ghanaians because of our choked gutters.
In a report YEN.com.gh sighted on Pulse.com.gh, gospel singer Mayor the Bass made the rather astounding claim that prayers of Ghanaians do not make it to God because of our choked gutters.
While commiserating with the rest of the country over the loss of lives in the recent floods that hit the nation's capital, Bass thought that prayers were not enough to solve the perennial problem.
Indeed, according to Bass, God does not hear our prayers at all.
The singer claims the deaths are caused by filthy gutters, which he said are evil spirits.
Bass, who is known for his gospel hit “Yesu Ma Me Anigye”, believes cleanliness leads to Godliness, and filth can sometimes cause hindrances to our prayers reaching God.
He is quoted as saying: “Prayers of Ghanaians are not being answered because of choked and smelly gutters in our towns and cities, causing loss of lives in our country as a result of floods.
We usually call it natural disasters but it's so sad and annoying especially when we all know the solution. For decades this same flood story keeps knocking on the doors of the people of Ghana.”
Bass explained that in the ancient days, good smell played vital roles in prayers.
He cited the use of incense burning for prayers and further linked to smelly gutters which block our chances of getting heard by God.
It is not clear if Bass is making his arguments in good faith or trying to provoke debate. But whatever the case, it will be good publicity for a musician.
