Ghanaian gospel musician Enoch Blessing Acquah, also known in the showbiz industry as EBA, has suggested that money, cars, mansions and flashy lifestyles do define one's success.
EBA believes you can be labelled successful if you can fulfil the mandate God has given to you.
He made this statement when he appeared on “Kasapa Entertainment” show on Accra-based Kasapa FM.
“When they say someone is successful, to humans, it’s about having cars, money and living a luxurious lifestyle,” EBA told the host, Eddie Ray.
“But God doesn’t judge success by the things you have. The Bible says success does not lie in the abundance of things that a man possesses.”
He further stated that you might have everything in this world but in God’s eyes you might be a failure, adding that ‘money is good but doesn’t mean anything’.
“So, when we say someone is successful in the eyes of God, it means the person has fulfilled his God-given mandate or assignment.”
“Therefore, if you have many things – materially and financially – and you don’t fulfil your God-given assignment, then you are a failure in the eyes of God. Money is good but doesn’t mean anything.”
When asked if he is successful in the eyes of men, EBA, who is a real estate developer and the CEO of Soaring Estates Ghana Limited, said: “I won’t say I’m unsuccessful but I haven’t gotten there.”
He added that his music career is a calling and not for money.
“My music career is a mandate I’m fulfilling. God called me into the music ministry a long time ago until recently that I put some things aside to focus on the music business.”
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a woman who would not sit down to have her husband snatched from her has taken steps to expose the alleged wrecker of her marriage by her printing her details on fliers.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the side chick's details including her pretty face, name and MTN number were displayed on the flier.
The scorned wife who was not having any shenanigans added a message to the details and asked the lady to steer clear of her husband.
