God’s wrath will visit Achimota school for denying students with dreadlocks admission – Ras Kuuku

Ras-Kuuku1

Musician, Ras Kuuku has threatened the management of Achimota School with curses for refusing two students with dreadlocks admission into the school.

The Rastafarian Musician students were told to go and cut down their hair before being allowed the opportunity to study in the school; a directive that has since generated a national debate.

While the Old Students of the Achimota School and the PTA are backing their headmistress for issuing that directive, the Ghana Education Service (GES) which initially backed the students have withdrawn their support.

Commenting on the issue on Angel Midday News, Ras Kuuku said he is shocked the authorities at Achimota School will do such a thing.

He argued that dreadlocks were not alien to the African Tradition and hence it would be prudent for the management of Achimota School to grant the students admission.

To him, this is the ‘highest form of discrimination in Ghana now’ which will attract God’s wrath on the Achimota School.

“This is the highest form of discrimination in recent times and I am shocked it is happening. God’s wrath will visit Achimota School if they fail to allow the students into the school…,” he said.

Our God-given talents can be likened to a potter’s beautiful flower vase – Jayana

WhatsApp Image 2021-03-16 at 5.07.00 PM

Ghanaian contemporary gospel musician, Jemima Annor Yeboah, better known by her stage name Jayana has expressed worry over how some churches and other event organizers fail to pay Gospel artistes for ministering at their events.

Airing her concern, the beautiful gospel act noted that it is about time gospel artistes are valued and appreciated for blessing the Christendom with their God-given talents.

Admitting that gospel artistes use their artistic gifts to glorify God and also earn a good living. She made referenced to the popular parable of the talent in the Bible as captured in Matthew 25:18, “But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.”

Many have shared their concerns on why they think Gospel musicians should not charge for their performances at churches.

But speaking on ATV’s Anopa Bosuo with host Gifty Adorye popularly known as ‘Empress Gifty’, Jayana said “God wants us to use our talents and be efficient with our time to benefit the society as a whole.”

She pleaded with corporate bodies and churches to understand the business side of ministry because that is the way they are able to fund their projects.

Jayana further explained that God is the only one who is the ultimate Creator because He created humans to reflect his glory. She indicated that it one of those ways as a minister of God one can reflect God’s glory through the various giftings that God bestows on humans.

“Jesus has given us all different gifts, that are all meant to reflect, or show off, different parts of his character to the world, so that he may be glorified. 

“If we were all talented in the same way, the expanse of what could be expressed about God would be limited. Just as the body is not complete without all of its members, so Christ’s church is not complete without the individual giftings of each member.” Jayana explained

The ‘Victory’ hit singer likened the gift of God to a potter making a beautiful flower vase with clay.

Jayana said clay is being trampled over making it lose it value but once the potter searches for it and turn it into a beautiful vase, it is well appreciated by passers-by when it is displayed on the flower stand.

She recently released her new single titled ‘AWURADE’. Produced by Cyclone Production, Jayana acknowledges God in the new song, looking back and analysing the difficult moment in her life when her musical journey began.

 

Jayana is noted for her soul-touching ministrations making an immense impact on followers of gospel music, Jayana is a Ghanaian contemporary gospel singer and an entrepreneur.

The Jejeli’ hitmaker who was on a Radio Tour in Kumasi speaking in an interview on Ultimate Fm with DJ Kastro on what motivated the feature, noted he’s always loved the band from afar and wanted to explore the rock genre in the Ghanaian gospel space.

 

‘These people have wanted to do Gospel music all their lives. They wanted to get a feature with a Gospel artiste and they were not getting it. I actually have been watching them from afar. Any time I see anything people perceive as ‘devilish,’ I try to reshape people’s mentality with the Gospel attached to it.

I love them from afar and the kind of Alternative Music they were doing and I felt Rock is not something we normally don’t do in Ghana Gospel so it will be a good path to venture into. I reached out to them and Shine was so excited and he said they’ve always wanted to record a Gospel song,’ KobbySalm explained.

Born Samuel Kwabena Adjei, was born on May 14th in Accra (Ghana) and studied Communications in the African University College of Communications. As a Christian rap artist, KobbySalm usually loves to explore genres with his rap although his interest mainly is Soul Hip-hop.

82100845.295

Musician Great Ampong has indicated that he has deep seated hatred for homosexuals.

The conversation on homosexuality has become very topical in recent times especially in Ghana when the LGBTQI community secured an office to address issues bothering the safety of people who indulge in the act.

The office has since been closed and the President of Ghana has given the strongest indication that he does not intend to legalize the act.

Speaking on the raging conversation, Great Ampong indicated that homosexuality is one of the gravest sins man can commit against God.

He indicates that the bible is gravely against the act and especially people who provide support for them when they do not engage in the act.

“They are not strong. Everyone who I’ve seen to be gay is not strong physically, they are just weak people with weak minds. They don’t have anything, people claim that they are powerful, they are not. We have produced song against them if they are powerful they should come after us.

” We hate them we are against them. I’m told they said we should not hate them but for me, I hate them will all that is within me. Anything God hates, I also hate it,” he told Kingdom Plus FM’s Fiifi Pratt in an interview restreamed by MyNewsGh.com.
