Wanlov jabs Ayitey Powers

Controversial Ghanaian rapper Wanlov the Kubolor has slammed boxer Ayitey Powers for running to Prophet T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) to seek deliverance ahead of the much-anticipated bout with Bukom Banku.

In an interview with NEWS-ONE, the barefoot-walking musician said he considered Ayitey Powers as a “weak spirited” boxer who deserves whipping from Bukom Banku.

“I did not care if Bukom or Powers won till Powers went to Joshua. Now, I want Bukom to lash him with a cane. Powers is a weak spirited boxer,” he stated.

The Kubolor man wondered why the popular boxer has suddenly turned to God for succour as if he did not know God existed before.

“Who told him God cares about boxing or soccer?” Wanlov asked rhetorically, noting with emphasis that “boxing is boxing and religion is not part of it.”

Ayitey Powers went through a drama-filled deliverance session at Prophet T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Nigeria during one of their Sunday services.

He flew all the way from Ghana to Nigeria to seek divine intervention before the much-promoted fight with Bukom Banku, another loud-mouthed boxer.

That move, according to Wanlov, was a sign of weakness on the part of Powers.

“I support Bukom Banku in this bout. A boxer needs plenty training, strength and small luck,” he added.

The bout which has been nicknamed ‘Judgment Night’ is slated for April 18, 2014, at the Accra Sports Stadium.

As it stands now, what is not clear is whether the fight would still come on as planned in spite of Ayittey Powers’ excuse for another date to be fixed for each of them to test their strength against the other.
