Daughters of Glorious Jesus, a seasoned gospel group from Ghana founded in 1989, has advocated for Christians to listen to secular music.
The musical trio, which consists of Cynthia Appiadu, Edna Sarpong, and Monica Owusu Ansah, revealed during a debate on UTV’s Showbiz that Christians could benefit from the comfort and guidance offered by some secular music.
The musical group suggested listening to secular songs with positive content, such as those by Legendary Asante Akim Royal Amakye Dede.
They admitted that they like his music and think the lyrics are powerful.
“It is God who gives talent. As a Christian, you can listen to secular songs; even their lyrics can touch you and compel you to do the right thing. The gift is from God.
“I like Amakye Dede’s songs, and I like him. This doesn’t make me a non-believer. You don’t judge people’s outlooks and determine whether the person is a Christian or not. That I am playing Amakye Dede in my car doesn’t mean I am not a Christian.
Some of Kojo Antwi’s songs give good counsel. He sings love songs. If you are married and listen to some of those songs with your husband, isn’t it a good feeling? Because Kojo Antwi also goes to church,” Monica said.
