Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah Jnr., better known as Akwaboah Jnr, has revealed that his pastor urged him on to venture into secular music.
According to him, his pastor actually prophesied that his calling is to do secular music.
Recently, singer Kurl Songx raised concerns about how he has been criticised by the church because of the type of music – secular – he has chosen to do.
Akwaboah Jnr, who recently released ‘Matters of the Heart’, a 12-track album, told Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM that even though he had recorded both a gospel and secular albums, he was caught in a dilemma about the kind of music he should do as a musician.
Akwaboah Jnr, however, noted that his pastor helped him with choosing one.
“…the thing is that my pastor believes in everyone’s destiny; we all can’t be pastors; we all can’t be bankers. Initially, I wanted to do gospel songs so I did a gospel album but I also recorded a secular album so I was confused as to which side I should stand for…,” he said.
“…My pastor was prophesying… and he called me and told me that my calling was to do secular music…,” the talented musician added.
Akwaboah Jnr has a gospel song, ‘Worship (Medley)’, on his ‘Matters of the Heart’ album.
