Highlife-artist-turned-evangelist, Papa Shee, is blaming Christians for the predicament of fellow musician, Ofori Amponsah.
According to Evangelist Papa Shie, if Christians had prayed for him when he backslid, he would have been saved.
Ofori Amponsah, in July 2012, quit secular music to pursue a full-time ministry of God after he announced that he had received a calling from God.
He banned all radio stations from playing his songs, explaining that it will pull more souls for the devil but years later, he made a U-turn by releasing a song titled Alewa.
When quizzed by the media, Ofori Amponsah said returning to his first love [music] will not affect his work as a pastor.
But he was criticised by many for joking with the work of God. Some of the critics concluded that he became a self-styled pastor just to make money.
Commenting on the issue on Adom FM’s midmorning show, Work and Happiness, however, Papa Shee said Ofori Amponsah was not to blame for his action.
“The devil has worked for idle hands so when Christians rejected Ofori Amponsah, the devil came for him,” he opined.
Citing himself as an example, the Koyon so hitmaker said he nearly gave up on God when he started but had support from his church and family.
“You cannot serve two masters; it is impossible. If our brother has turned to the world, we must pray for him and not condemn him. It’s not easy to be a Christian; even Jesus Christ was tempted.
This notwithstanding, Papa Shee said Ofori Amponsah must return to Christ if truly he has the calling of God.
“As a Christian, you will go to the wilderness but you should be able to stand. Jesus was able to defeat the devil,” he added.
