Christians should not shy away from politics – OB Nartey

EtDlWUQXUAEJRYL

Radio Broadcaster, Kwame OB Nartey, has urged Christians not to shy away from politics.

According to him, the perception that politics is a dangerous venture, therefore, not meant for Christians should be eschewed.

Speaking on Joy FM’The Reason is Jesus, on Sunday, he said: “I’ve heard many theories that Christians should not even involve themselves in politics. But we can’t sit down as Christians and expect unbelievers to rule us.”

“If that’s what we’re saying, then if they allow and legalise certain things that have come from the Western world into our system, we will be affected as well.”

Referring to the recent debates on LGBT+ rights and freedoms in the country, the broadcaster noted that he was uncomfortable with the conversation, but believes that if there were enough Christians in government, the debate would have been shot down long before it became a national conversation.

“In recent times, there has been an argument about lesbianism and gayism, that they were considering legalizing it, or passing whatever it is, and I’m sure you were uncomfortable. I was uncomfortable.

“I’m sure if we had a majority of us in there, we would have the voice to say our country Ghana was founded on the principle of Godly teachings and that is why our national anthem starts ‘God bless our homeland Ghana’,” he said.

In his interaction with host, Fifi Folson, he added that: “We have a stand with morality, we have an agreement with morality, we have a contract with morality and so, we should be able to uphold them as much as we are having a lot of pressure from Western culture, we should be able to preserve our sanity when it comes to some of these things. And I believe that Christians, staunch, hardcore, stubborn Christians should be in there.”

An Unforgettable Moment For MOGmusic And Patrons. The ‘New Wine Concert’ Was A Huge Success

276172351_703582160994106_1976309448170368365_n-e1647946271701

From being seen as a gospel event underdog some few years back, MOGmusic’s New Wine concert has grown to become one of the top gospel events in Ghana and this has been proven to hold true after a massive, well patronized and electrifying atmosphere of worship at the just ended 2022 edition dubbed KOINONIA.

The current Male Vocalist of Year at the VGMAs, Ps Nana Yaw Boakye-Yiadom, popularly known as MOGmusic has raised the bar high for himself as far his music growth is concerned and the gospel music industry as a whole after pulling close to a 10,000 crowd into the newly built 21,000 capacity Oil Dome of the Royal House Chapel.

 

Aside from the huge gathering of worshippers, MOG and his guest ministers did very well in leading patrons into the presence of God. Everyone from that evening has attested to the spiritual blessing through the atmosphere of worship.

There were a few instances of technical hitches which were later fixed but the positives far outweigh the negatives and did not have so big an influence on the success of the program and that should be worth noting.

The event had a live recording part where MOGmusic sang very new compositions, songs that are expected to be featured in his upcoming Koinonia album scheduled for release later this year.

One remarkable thing to consider is the contribution from other industry players and the love shown by fellow gospel singers. Most of them showed up on the night to support their brother.

There were sterling performances from Akesse Brempong who kept patrons on their feet and dancing to his ragga/reggae repertoire, Joe Mettle and Daughters brought their worship power. There were other ministrations from KobbySalm, Vicky Frimpong and the moment everybody was waiting for – Donnie Mcclurkin on stage joined by MOGmusic.

After the event, MOGmusic says;

“At the age of 12 years I had a dream to one day stand and minister on the same stage with @donmac6453 some 20 something years after the dream has come to pass. Believe in God the giver of dreams and trust the process.”

I almost gave up on music – MOG Music reveals

MOG-Music-1-scaled

Multiple award-winning gospel musician, Nana Yaw Boakye, known in showbiz circles as MOG Music, reveals that he almost gave up his music career after several blunders in his quest to make an impact.

Speaking in an interview with Cookie Tee on TV3 Newday, the gospel musician said he literally made every necessary effort to be successful in his career, but all his efforts proved futile.

“I was going to give up. I was worn out. I had literally given out everything, and I thought that that was it. I thought there was nothing I could do. Everything in me was gone. At that moment, the human instincts kicked in and just told me to give up.”

MOG music further stated that, before he grew into the limelight, prophecies were revealed to him concerning how he will impact nations with his music. And how frustrating it was when these prophecies did not materialize.

 

“I have received prophecies that God has called me into ministry, and it was very frustrating how it wasn’t happening. Sometimes I say, why is God revealing things to people, and I’m not experiencing it.”

 

He added that despite all the challenges, his church and friends encouraged him to hold onto the faith.

“In my lowest moments, the pillar that held me was my church. My pastor was there for me. I need to be honest. He gave me a platform; he gave me a support system to help me in my lowest moments until the time I was able to get up on my feet and do things on my own. I really have to give that credit to my pastor,” he revealed.

Speaking on his concert dubbed ‘Koinonia’, sixth edition of ‘New Wine Concert’, MOG Music said three-time Grammy award winner and gospel musician, Donnie McClurkin, has been billed to perform at the concert.

Speaking on how he feels about the American singer’s appearance at his concert, MOG said, “Literally, it still feels like a dream. This is something I prayed and wished for, and it humbles me to know that all these are happening.”

The concert features ace gospel musicians, including Daughter of Glorious Jesus, Joe Mettle, Akesse Brempong, Vicky Frimpong, Ella Duncan Williams King, and others.

MOG Music encouraged all to make it to the concert to experience the goodness of God through continuous worship with thrilling music from ace gospel acts.
Tickets for the concert sells at GHS 30 Single, GHS 50 Regular, GHS 50 Double and GHS100 VIP.
The ticket can be acquired by dialling 389777#.

Sam Korankye Ankrah prays for Bobbie Ansah and Thompson Mensah

FB_IMG_1644938492646-719×375

The Founder and General Overseer of the Royalhouse Chapel International, Apostle General, Most Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, has kicked against the harassment of journalists by the security agencies in the country.

“We do not support the harassment of journalists who are doing their work to speak truth to power and call power to account,” he said during the Sunday church service on the 13th of February.

He made the pronouncement when  Kwabena Bobbie Ansah of Accra Fm and Thompson Mensah the Executive Director of the Alliance for Social Equity and  Public Accountability (ASEPA), who were recently arrested for false news publication and later released, joined the church to thank the Lord.

“In Royalhouse Chapel you have faithful partners in the liberty of journalism and reportage in Ghana,” he told the duo

He said it is the responsibility of all to hold those in power accountable for their actions and inactions. “When we vote for them, we will call them to accountability, they would have to account for the power vested in them and the promises that they make for which we elected them. It is not going to be an assignment of journalists and the courts only but of every citizen of this nation,” he said.

Adding his voice to the several calls for the use of the courts for redress in matters such as false news publication, the Apostle General said the police investigations were unnecessary.

He also used the opportunity to call for forgiveness for the two saying, “let us learn to forgive those who are always on the microphone. The one who goes to the stream to fetch water is the one who gets wet. Within the spur of the moment, we say things that we should not say, but when you are emotionally charged, it happens.”

He further noted that journalists sometimes find themselves in trouble for things they say and write but that should not be used to condemn the profession in its entirety, adding, “It is the hazards of the work. We should learn to forgive and tolerate them and look at the work that they do for the common good of society and not the small mistakes that they commit.”

On that note the Most Rev. Korankye Ankrah apologised on their behalf to anyone who had been offended by their reportage and prayed for the duo.
