Highlife musician, Ofori Amponsah, has recounted the trauma he went through after a close friend destroyed his marriage.

The ‘otoolege’ hitmaker during an interview with Kofi TV said his whole life was brought to a standstill because he could not understand why his own friend will treat him that way.

Describing how badly the situation affected him, ‘Mr. All4Real’ said he was heartbroken to an extent, he became a loner and didn’t want to have anything to do with anyone, not even music.

“Someone I helped entered my home and destroyed my marriage. Someone I opened my gates to could do that to me. That day I had a show at the national theatre but I performed poorly on stage because I was surprised that someone I really helped would do that to me. Since then, I couldn’t write, sing or do anything. For about three years I was shut. No shows, nothing. I was in my room. I became lonely,” he said

He also established that the incident somewhat revived his faith, adding, he decided to start a church after a prophet advised him to run to God.

“The only thing I could remember at that moment was to pray. I was there one day when a prophet called me and advised me that if I don’t run to God, nothing will work out well for me,” he stated
