S.P Kofi Sarpong has come under serious attack for performing Kofi Kinaata’s “Susuka” song at a gospel Rock Show event last Sunday.
The awarding winning artiste and current gospel artiste of the year after performing a couple of his songs decided to give some inspiration to patrons. He crowned that up with Susuka.
Little did he know that a fellow gospel artiste – Naa Mercy who is well known in the contemporary gospel circles was going to descend on him right on the same platform for singing what she termed a “wordly” song in a Holy place.
When it was Naa Mercy’s turn to perform, she took a few minutes to chastise S.P Kofi Sarpong for his act.
According to Naa Mercy, God is a jealous God. And that children of God should not joke with the holy spirit. She expressed her reservations right in the presence of the popular gospel artiste.
Speaking on the AM Pluzz show with Sammy Flex, manager of SP Kofi Sarpong – Kwesi Ernest has explained Kofi’s act and stated that SP Kofi Sarpong is noted for ministering good songs be it gospel or not. Once he finds the song inspiring, he is likely to perform it on any platform he deems fit.
He however cautioned budding artistes to be careful the way they carry themselves about in the name of being holy.
