‘Mayɛ sɛ mopɛn’ must be adopted in second cycle institutions – OJ urges

unnamed-1-1

Gospel musician Michael Oware Sakyi popularly Minister OJ has recommended that his hit song ‘Mayɛ sɛ mopɛn’ be adopted by the managers of the country’s education sector to guide the lives of students.

In an interview with Agyemang Prempeh (Agyemang Nie) on Power Entertainment on Power FM, the songwriter said the motive behind that song was to speak to the conscience of the youth of the country to tone down on certain habits like womanizing, drug addiction, and alcoholism.

‘Mayɛ sɛ mopɛn’ which literally means ‘I was once like you’ was written and sung by the UK-based Gospel musician to recount the stories of adults who spent their youthful years engaging in social vices but lived to regret in their old age.

OJ said the leaders of the country have not focused on the upcoming generation but rather channel their energy on “adults who won’t live long on the earth”.

He would not reject any offer to embark on a nationwide tour to speak to teenagers in high schools on how to live their lives so they don’t regret it in the future.

“I don’t mind going on a ‘Mayɛ sɛ mopɛn’ nationwide tour in secondary schools when called upon to do so,” he disclosed.

His willingness is informed by the rate at which the youth are engaging in hard drugs and other social vices which security analysts have described as a national security threat.

OJ writes songs to motivate and inspire hope. He says he writes songs based on the happenings in society.

He has released a new song –Meduru– that is already enjoying airplay in the country.

Meduru which means ‘I’ll get there’ is to inspire hope to Gospel lovers who want to be achievers.

OJ has hit songs such as ‘ɛte sɛn’, ‘Onipa hia moa’, ‘Fa mpaebo’ among others.

I Have Found The Light Of Christ And Going Through Spiritual Awakening – Wendy Shay

209290268_2211454459702092_2596797518805985531_n-2-e1626472450691

Ghanaian secular singer and nurse-turned-musician, Wendy Shay has announced her repentance after experiencing a spiritual awakening with Christ, saying that she is enjoying the relationship with Jesus so far.

“I have found the light, Jesus Christ is the way, truth, and light and if you find him and entrust everything to him, things will fall in the right place,” she said

Speaking in an interview on Accra-based radio, Okay FM, and later on Showbiz 360 with Giovani, Wendy said she had found her true self and was on a total rebranding in terms of belief, music, brand, and image.

According to her, she discovered her true self after undergoing personal problems including spiritual warfare in the last couple of years.

“I have now redeemed myself, you know the relationship with God has so many levels, I am not the closest to God, but I am in a level where I trust God entirely as He has shown me his grace and power,” she said.

According to her, she discovered her true self after undergoing personal problems including spiritual warfare in the last couple of years.

“I have now redeemed myself, you know the relationship with God has so many levels, I am not the closest to God, but I am in a level where I trust God entirely as He has shown me his grace and power,” she said.

Though she didn’t provide details of the exact challenges she encountered, Wendy disclosed she has been through a lot, and in that period, was introduced to Jesus Christ who calmed her storms.

With her new ‘child-of-God’ identity, the ‘Masakra’ hitmaker said she had taken it upon herself to reconcile other children of God to the father.

She said her new mandate was to alert mankind that salvation and comfort await them, only if they ignore the dark forces governing the earth and run into the temple of the Most-High.

On how to achieve that feat, Wendy said she has dedicated her social media pages to preaching to her over five million followers.

 

“My platform is not just for my music. I have 2.3 million followers on Instagram, 1.6 million on Facebook, and 1 million on Twitter. I have started preaching on my social media pages. When I came back from Germany, I wasn’t a believer, but now, I am closer to God, and I want to bring my fans to Him too,” she said.

Her repentance comes at a time when Ghanaians are still coming to terms with actress Moesha Boduong’s newfound faith in God.

Moesha announced weeks ago that she has parted ways with her former lifestyle, even to the point of selling off all property she acquired through shady dealings.

”I have peace after giving my life to Christ” – Moesha shares testimony

wp-image-71339841-e1626085409258-780×405

Popular Ghanaian female celebrity and “Slay Queen” Moesha Boduong who is widely known for her unapologetic artificial body surgery has recently surrendered her life to Christ as shares her experience of an encounter with the Lord.

Though this great news came with mix-feeling among the general public, few Christian folk in Ghana are indifferent and most of them wishing her well and praying for Grace for her in this new journey.

Moesha Boduong has announced her new love in Christ and has asked for all her sins to be forgiven as she begins to walk in the light. She has also deleted all her Instagram pictures including the provocative ones, changing her name from Moesha Boduong to now Maurecia Boduong.

According to a recent happening, many people are attributing her new journey to a desire to be married to a rich man’s son who is a Christian. As a tradition demand in that family, she is not allowed to marry their son in the former state – an unbeliever.

With this development, people are wondering if she is doing it for the marriage, the cameras or this is for real.

We wish her well and we ask God to make her stand in the grace she has found

Britain: Methodist Church allows same-sex marriage in ‘momentous’ vote

_110720358_gettyimages-1175682245

The Methodist Church has become the largest religious denomination in Britain to permit same-sex marriages.

A vote to change the definition of marriage at the Methodist Conference on Wednesday overwhelmingly passed by 254 in favor with 46 against.

Freedom of conscience clauses means ministers will not be forced to conduct such weddings if they oppose the move.

Same-sex marriage is not allowed in the Church of England or the Roman Catholic Church. However, it is welcomed in the Scottish Episcopal Church and United Reformed Church.

The Methodist Church in Britain’s fourth-largest Christian denomination with about 164,000 members across more than 4,000 churches.

Church officials hope the first same-sex weddings in Methodist chapels will take place in the autumn.

The Rev Sam McBratney, chair of the Dignity and Worth campaign group, said it was a “momentous step on the road to justice” after many years of “painful conversations”.

“Some of us have been praying for this day to come for decades, and can hardly believe it is nowhere,” he said. “We are so grateful to our fellow Methodists for taking this courageous step to recognize and affirm the value and worth of LGBTQ+ relationships.

“We reassure those who do not support this move that we want to continue to work and worship with you in the Church we all love.”

However in an emotional debate, Carolyn Lawrence, a former vice-president of the Methodist Conference, warned there was a “significant minority” of Methodists who were “planning on leaving or resigning their membership” as a result of the vote.

“Today is a line in the sand for many people and seen as a significant departure from our doctrine.”

Ben Riley and Jason McMahon have been together for 12 years but have waited to marry until they could have a church wedding.

Ben said today’s decision “means so much” and they now hope to marry in their local Methodist church in Preston.

Jason, who is training to be a Methodist minister, described it as a “very emotional day”.

“To be told by the Church that you are worthy, that we accept you, and that you can be married in the eyes of God in the church you call home with friends and family – it means a great deal.

“It has really helped me feel truly at home within a Church that is able to embrace anybody.”

He said waiting for same-sex weddings to be permitted had been “painful” but added that he hoped the Methodist Church could now “begin to look outwards”.

The proposals were initially passed by the Methodist Conference in 2019 before being sent to local synods for consultation.

All but one of the 30 local synods have since voted in favour of the change. Wednesday’s confirmatory vote was due to take place at the 2020 conference but that was cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The changes mean the Methodist Church now holds two parallel definitions of marriage – one position says “marriage can only be between a man and a woman” and the other that “marriage can be between any two people”.

Church officials hope the dual definition will persuade conservative churches not to leave and protect ministers from discrimination claims if they refuse to marry gay couples.

The Rev Sonia Hicks, president of the Methodist Conference, said: “The debate today and our wider conversation has been conducted with grace and mutual respect.

“As we move forward together after this historic day for our Church, we must remember to continue to hold each other in prayer, and to support each other respecting our differences.”
