A revered personality in the Ghanaian entertainment industry who is behind some of the great tunes in most hit songs, both gospel and secular, David Kojo Kyei, affectionately known as Kaywa says it is wrong for circular musicians to switch to gospel when they become “born again”.
The man who has been conferred with a Doctor of Divinity certificate from the United Apostolic Theology Seminary has thrown a challenge to anybody who says secular music is demonic to prove what is demonic about it.
Speaking to Attractive Mustapha about why some secular musicians fail when they are born again and venture into the gospel ministry, Kaywa is of the opinion that they get it wrong that is why they fail.
Explaining further, he said that to be born again, one is not only called into the church and that is what most people get wrong.
“If God calls you, He calls you into the world, he calls you to go and bring people into Christ, he calls you to go and disciple people for Christ; They are normally not called into the church and if they understand it as such, they won’t fail.”
He emphasised that there is nothing wrong with working as a musician and serving God. Kaywa said he as a servant of God and still a producer and nothing has changed in his professional work.
” I still produce music even though I am a pastor now, anyone who asks me to stop producing hiplife or highlife music, I will fight the person “, Kaywa added.
He concluded that If the secular music is demonic as being portrayed by a section of the people, pastors would not play it during their parties and weddings.
The music producer also stated that there are many biblical verses that elaborate the essence of love and urged musicians to use those lines in signing since love songs promote good marriages.
