No hiplife in my church – Agyin Asare

Bishop Charles Agyin Asare Bishop Charles Agyin Asare

Presiding Bishop of Perez Chapel International, Charles Agyin Asare says although his church has become home to several social events aside Christian programs, he will not entertain any event that has to do with hiplife, the Ghanaian youthful music genre.

“Hiplife? No, I won’t. I don’t hate hiplife artistes but I don’t like the way some of them will dress to the place … and the way some of them will behave at the place,” he noted in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chart on Starr 103.5 FM Wednesday.

When asked if he will give room for highlife artistes to perform, the respected man of God said yes but added that certain conditions have to be met.

“I will only accommodate them if only we will be assured of decorum. Even though it is a public place, it is also a church and I wouldn’t want people to come there smoking.”

He told Bola Ray that highlife musician like Pat Thomas, C. K. Man, and Ampadu are his favourite artistes because “they used to sing so many meaningful songs.”

Bishop Agyin Asare now presides over a congregation of 14,000 having started with some 70 adults at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle years ago.
