Angry gospel musicians slam ‘confused’ Brother Sammy

Some gospel musicians in the country have taken on their fellow gospel musician, Brother Sammy, for disgracing the name of God.

The musicians speaking on Adom FM’s Drive Time Show, ‘Ofiekwanso’ on Tuesday expressed disappointment in the controversial musician for releasing what many have termed as the most ‘stupid gospel song to have ever been sung by a musician’.

The gospel musicians who were led by Noble Nketia and OJ, demanded that Brother Sammy apologise to Ghanaians especially Christians for ‘disgracing the name of Christ'.

“Sammy must come and apologise because it is inappropriate to call a creature of God foolish…we are in a serious business and hence we must act according to the lyrics of the songs we sing…,” OJ said.

“No serious man of God, OJ said, will want to invite him to minister because the Pastor cannot be guaranteed of what you will say when singing.”

Brother Sammy has come under pressure for releasing a song that describes his perceived enemies with various unprinted words.

It is rumoured that the song is targeted at gospel musician turned prophetess, Cecilia Marfo who is alleged to have slapped Brother Sammy in the face during a deliverance service in her church.

But the lyrics of the song has been roundly condemned by most Ghanaians.

Ace Gospel musician, Noble Nketia who was also on the show expressed disappointment in the lyrics of the song describing as a below the belt song.

“I used to listen to the likes of Daughters of Glorious Jesus and Mary Ghansah, their songs inspired some of us because they sang to glorify God…how can you describe someone as a foolish creation and still want to evangelise to the same person?” he quizzed.

To him, Brother Sammy was in a way making mockery of Christianity.

“Brother Sammy is mocking Christianity and that will lead many to dislike the faith…we ought to ensure that the lyrics of our songs inspired people and draw them closer to God…,” Nketia added.

Jack Alolome, another known Gospel Musician also called on Brother to wake up to the reality that he was an ambassador who was on a mission to win souls for God.

“Sammy Tuga (Brother Sammy) called me and said by the Grace of God, the song is trending paa…we are not the likes of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy,” he said.
