Churches In Ghana Don’t Invest In Talents, They Rather Build Churches – Ofori Amponsah.

Highlife legend, Ofori Amponsah, says churches in Ghana would rather build many other churches than to invest in the talents of their members.

In an interview on TV XYZ’s ‘Legends’ show, he stated that, from his experience, if one doesn’t take care he or she may die with their potential in the church.

“Church is not a place where you get help when you really need it. When they collect money, they will build a church. This is what I saw in the church. At that time, I was a lay preacher. I was focused on planting churches”.

“If you don’t take care, you will die with your talents in the church without being fruitful although God says which should be fruitful.

They take you for granted. When you sing, they don’t pay you but when a preacher comes to speak, they pay him. If you don’t invest in people, how can they grow” he said.

He talked about his experiences with the church when he started singing in the early 90s.

He pointed out that he had no intentions of becoming a highlife musician because his first album was a gospel album. However, because he didn’t get enough support until Daddy Lumba figured out his potential, he diverted to Highlife.
