Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A Ghanaian roadside preacher has been captured in a rather hilarious video playing secular artiste Fameye's song before beginning his sermon.
The interesting footage, which has gathered a good number of reactions, was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of First TV Ghana.
Although the name of the supposed pastor and his location have not been disclosed, the video appears to have been recorded in either Accra or Kumasi judging by the look of the place and the fact that the preacher is heard speaking Twi.
Watch the video below:
Although Fameye, whose real name is Peter Famiyeh Bozah, is a secular artiste, his song Long Life talks about God blessing a human with long life.
It is believed that the preacher did not actually know the composer of the musical work but found it to be a suitable 'gospel' song to begin his service with.
The sight of this is interesting because such preachers are known for barefacedly criticising secular music and advising 'true' Christians to desist from singing or listening to them.
This is not the first time such an event has been reported. Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that a female preacher was captured singing Kofi Kinaata's Things Fall Apart in a trending video.
Reports indicate that the incident happened in a busy market area in Takoradi. The name of the preacher and the Christian ministry she serves remain unknown but the trending video has made her popular nonetheless.
It is an interesting twist because Kofi Kinaata is a secular artist known for songs that may not be accepted in the 'house of God'.
