I erred in starting a church - Ofori Amponsah

Celebrated highlife singer Ofori Amponsah, has admitted in a recent interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso of the Delay Show, that starting the Family of Faith and Love Ministries in 2013, was a miscalculated step, and a result of turbulent times he underwent emotionally.

While he maintained that he has been called by God (as is the case with every christian), he acknowledged that it was in another area, and not to be a pastor.

His second stint on the show, the conversation, a grilling, saw him backtrack on statements he had made the first time he was on the show in 2015, such as a declaration never to return to secular music, as well as his original motives for entering ministry. He also admitted to recording secular music with KayWa while still running a church.

Zylofon Media Will Collapse - Mark Okraku Mantey

Programs Director at Hitz FM, Mark Okraku-Mantey, has said that the unprofessional behavior of some Zylofon Media staff will bring down the company.

According to him, it’s not all about signing big names in the music industry but also hiring competent resource people to run the day to day affairs of the company.

The CEO of Slip Music, made the comments on Joy FM adding that he barely understand why there is so much fuss about Zylofon.

“One question we must ask is. Have we grown them? If we haven’t, I think we should be having answers to some of these things instead of every time causing sensation by splashing cash here and there,” he said.

“Take someone like Becca, she deserves to be on top, but look at her now. She’s rather fighting to stay relevant in the music industry. Can you tell me any hit song from one Zylofon artiste since they started putting them on contract?” he queried.
