“Stop watching pornography, for you will end up committing adultery or fornication with those acting it, as you lust; it also makes you lust after others in town, come out from that sin,” he said.

Yaw rose to fame in 2011 after he released his debut song ‘Wo Pe Dodo’ which was instantly a hit. However, the former Hiplife artiste quit music after surviving an accident in 2013.

Church Instrumentalists Should Be Paid- Gifty Adorye ‘Schools’ Pastor Antwi

img_2736-scaled

Ghanaian gospel singer Gifty Adorye who is popularly known as Empress Gifty has expressed disappointment at how churches treat instrumentalists.

According to the ‘Aseda’ hitmaker, those playing instruments in the churches should be paid and pastors should not see it as their contribution to the work of God.

Gifty Adorye also indicated that playing of instruments could be someone’s main job and deserved to be paid for their skills.

 “Playing instruments is someone’s only job and when they play, they should be paid. But the pastors see that as their contribution to the kingdom work and are given nothing that is very bad’’ she told Dr Cann in an interview on Happy FM.

Although Gifty Adorye’s statement is not a response to Pastor Antwi’s comment about church instrumentalists, it comes at the time the UK-based pastor is receiving several backlashes for the statement he made concerning payment of church instrumentalists.

It could be recalled that the leader and founder of Kharis Church in the United Kingdom, Pastor David Antwi asserted that people playing instruments in the church shouldn’t be paid because they are working for God.

He described church instrumentalists who take money in return for their services as thieves and satanic.

“You are a thief if you play church instruments and collect money. Satan’s cousin” Pastor Antwi said during a sermon in his church.

“When pastors invite you to their church programs, they want to enjoy your talent for free and if that is all you do, how do you make ends meet’’ she told Dr Cann on Happy FM’s ‘Showbiz Xtra’ monitored by browngh.com.

She recounted how a pastor promised to send her mobile money after a performance at his church but she never got the money.

“I went to perform in a church sometime back and the pastor asked me to pay the instrumentalists that played Two hundred Cedis (GHS 200.00) and he will reimburse me through mobile money, but he never did.
The most painful part is I led the fundraising that day and I know we raised a lot of money’’ she narrated.
