Gospel singer MOG claims he left the Methodist Church because his style of music was not accepted by them.
in an interview on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, the award-winning gospel artist revealed that leaving the Methodist Church was a big move that helped him develop.
The reason why I left the Methodist church was that I felt my gift was not really appreciated in the church and I was not getting the necessary support.
“We have events and the church does not support us, we have to do everything by ourselves. These things broke me down and I just had to leave,” MOG said.
Born Nana Yaw Boakye, the musician added that there were people in the church who fought against his ministry. MOG left the Methodist Church to join the Rev Samuel Korankye Ankrah-led Royal House Chapel. He told Andy Dosty that after visiting the church once, he had decided to stay at the Royal House Chapel.
I just visited Royal House when I was in the University to minister and when I listened to the worship and the word that was coming from Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah and I was like this is where I want to be,” he said. “He really supports us not just by word but financially. Every program that we have, he gives us money; not just to me but to everyone,” MOG added.
At the last Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, the Male Vocalist of the Year showed great gratitude to his current head, Pastor Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah, for his sponsorship of not only him but other gospel artists at the Royal House Chapel.
Four 5 albums to his name, MOG, with over a decade in the industry, said that he is very grateful for the massive support he gets from the industry.
