ALA! Kofi Kinaata’s music used in church sermon, praised for gospel themes
Ghanaian highlife artist Kofi Kinaata has once again found himself in the spotlight as one of his songs was used as a sermon in a church.
The sermon has since gone viral, with many praising the use of popular music in church sermons, noting that it can be an effective way to reach younger generations and bring them closer to their faith.
Apostle Okoh Agyemang of Living Yahweh 7th Day Sabbath Assemblies dissected Kinaata’s hit song “Susuka,” noting its gospel themes and its message of contentment. During his sermon, Apostle Agyemang stressed the importance of upholding moral values and relying on God for guidance.
He dedicated the lyrics of “Susuka” to those in his congregation who struggle with living within their means, using the song’s message of finding contentment in difficult situations to encourage them. The song, which was released in 2015, has become a hit among Ghanaians due to its catchy tune and lyrics that speak to the challenges of daily life.
After the sermon, Apostle Agyemang requested another of Kinaata’s songs, “Things Fall Apart,” and warned his members about the consequences of living a double life. The song, which was released in 2019, touches on themes of hypocrisy and moral decay in society.
Kinaata himself has given a shout-out to Apostle Agyemang for using his music to spread a positive message. The artist, who is known for his socially conscious lyrics and unique style, has become a beloved figure in Ghanaian music.
His music often touches on themes of love, morality, and the challenges of daily life, and has won him numerous awards and accolades. Kinaata has been praised for his ability to blend highlife music with modern-day rap and hip-hop beats, making his music accessible to a wide range of audiences.
The use of popular music in church sermons is not a new phenomenon, but it has gained renewed attention in recent years due to the rise of gospel-themed music in mainstream culture.
Many churches have embraced this trend as a way to reach younger generations and bring them closer to their faith.
Kinaata’s music has once again proven to be a powerful tool for spreading a positive message and encouraging listeners to live their lives with purpose and meaning.
As his music continues to gain popularity, it is likely that we will see more churches incorporating his songs into their sermons in the future.
