Ofori Amponsah: I’m not musically dead

Although his maiden gospel album did not do well on the market as he had expected, highlife musician-turned-pastor, Ofori Amponsah, says nothing will make him go back to secular music.

“I receive calls regularly from friends and fans who keep asking me to go back to highlife music since I am not doing well in the gospel scene.

Whenever I hear such comments, I brush them off because I know what I want to achieve with my gospel music” he told Showbiz in an interview on Tuesday.

According to Ofori Amponsah, although his earlier songs were mostly decent love songs, still, there is no way he would go back to secular music as his admirers suggest.

“What people forget is that I am a born-again person, and my new rules do not permit me to do secular music. Yes, many people wish I did secular music but I am sorry that cannot happen” he said.

To prove to his fans and friends that he was not “dead” on the music scene as many people believe, Ofori Amponsah said he would turn things around with his latest song Wose Kwame Ate Ahwe, which will be released next week.

“I hear people say all the time that I am no more useful on the music scene, but I think it is about time I proved all those doubting Thomases wrong, I’m confident that my song will be a hit because I have put in so much.”

Currently, Ofori Amponsah has a music school which together with his team teach new musicians how to compose and write their songs.
