While some opine that there is nothing wrong with the musician cum pastor singing highlife alongside his pastoral duties, DBK who is known to be a big fan of Ofori Amponsah’s music has likened the comeback to Pastor Mensah Otabil singing secular music like Megye Wo Girl by dancehall artiste Shatta Wale.

In an interview with Abrantepa on Radio Univers’ mid-morning show, Brunch2Lunch, DKB stated that the comeback is conflicting.

To move to the pastoral side and come back to do secular music is two conflicting elements. When you move to the pastoral side, the yardstick on you is very high. In the sense that people expect you to stand for righteousness, morality, purity and you must be devoid of any activities that a layman will involve himself in. and that is why people are reacting towards it,” he said.

“If you are singing ‘Alewa’, some people may say it’s just a toffee you are talking about, others may interpret it as a girl’s centre of gravity. So all these ambiguity involved is what society expects you to stay away from. That’s why it is a bit awkward that he has come back to secular music or whatever you will call it. Ofori Amponsah’s comeback and doing highlife looks like Dr Mensah Otabil singing ‘Megye Wo Girl’. Imagine Duncan Williams singing ‘Tonga’ on stage,” the comedian cum emcee stated.
