Ghana's very own wild child Afro Pop artist, Wanlov de Kuborlor, has said that he changed his first born son's schools because he noticed that his son was singing "useless" Christian songs.
According tot hecontroversial Afropop artist, religious teachings have no place in schools since they're not needed at that stage. He expressed that prior to enrolling his first born son, Abonsamposoro, to his former school he asked his teachers if any religious (Christian, Muslim, traditional) teachings to were at the school.
“When my first born, Abonsamposoro came to Ghana for the first time I took him to a school in Accra, before he was admitted I asked the school’s authority if they would be teaching him anything on religion whether Christianity, Muslim or tradition, I asked because I don’t want him to be preached to on Christianity, it is not needed in school, so just teach him numbers, colours and rainbows,” he said.

He said that days after his son was admitted into the school, he [Wanlov] heard his son singing gospel songs, a song he believed the child heard from school. Wanlov said he proceeded to immediately remove his son from that particular school, adding, "I am a bit hesitant in paying my kids school fees because they sing useless songs”.
According to Wanlov, choosing a religion is a personal choice, one that shouldn't be affected by external circumstances thus should not be taught in school, a notion many western countries have come to adopt.
"I don’t believe schools should teach about religion they should just teach what they are supposed to.”
