- Yaw Siki rejects Sonnie Badu's offer to assist him financially
- According to Siki he refused to take the assist because the UK based gospel musician went public with his good intention
- Sonnie Badu has since explained why he went public with his offer for the former hiplife artiste
Former hiplife artiste, Yaw Siki has turned down Sonnie Badu’s offer to assist him financially.
According to the new convert, his decision to reject Sonnie Badu’s support is because he decided to go public with his help.
“I love my brother Sonnie Badu so much and I respect him. What he did is an act of righteousness, but Matthew 6:1-4 says, ‘…So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by others.

“Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret…’ So based on this word, I am not able to take the offer,” Yaw Siki said on Accra based Hitz FM on Thursday.
Siki who admitted he needs help, however, noted that “God is in control. So many people have approached me and expressed interest in supporting me to win more souls.”

Meanwhile, shortly after Yaw Siki’s radio interview, Sonnie Badu also came out public on social media to say:
“It has been drawn to our attention that the young man Yaw Siki has rejected our help based on the following reasons: 1. Because I made it public. 2. Because I want fame from him … Lol I will not answer the second one.
“I would think at least he would have been thankful to us for speaking about his situation since it had generated a lot of intrest. However, to answer his first accusation, the only reason we put it out on Instagram and social media was, We discovered him on social media from an interview he granted in the first place .
“If he feels he did not need help he should not have granted the interview. No normal person would watch that and not want to help. Having said this , whatever was allocated for him has gone into other charitable projects…
“We wish him well in all his endeavors … It’s still a great thing to serve the Lord so it’s a good decision and step he took since there is nothing in the secular world. We were actually interested in reviving his music in the gospel world as well since I was told he only has one single out…”
Sonnie Badu offered to support Yaw Siki after the former rapper revealed in an interview with Joy News that he lives on preaching in commercial buses.
