There is a viral video circulating on social media where the members of a church are seen jamming to Stonebwoy’s Kpo Keke song during a church service.

Many people who have commented on the video have described it as ungodly.

Kpo Keke is one of the dancehall act’s songs in which he featured secular acts Medikal, DarkoVibes, Kelvyn Boy and Kwesi Arthur.

Stonebwoy has since reacted to the criticisms, saying the Kpo Keke Song was a far better song than some gospel songs because “most of the ‘evil’ songs we produce, have more seed in them than some gospel songs that we listen to.”

He added that:

“Let’s leave the churches
alone. Let’s not express hate or ignorance. One thing is, remember the body of Christ
is not the temple but we are the temple of God… Let’s not play perfect because
the same people who go to the church support the secular musicians who they say
are evil.

“What I know is that most of the songs we do that they say are evil have messages than some of the gospel musicians. So let’s not segregate. It’s a song that I created and featured other rappers to say thanks to God.”

The President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey, has also reacted to the ongoing debate by saying he didn’t think Stonebwoy intended to jab any particular person with his response.

Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Tuesday, Mr Mantey said he didn’t see anything wrong with the gesture.

He explained that “there is some truth to Stonebwoy’s reaction. He said some secular songs have seed than some gospel ones, which is true. Stonebwoy only said it shouldn’t bring lines and hate between those who believe in the church agenda and perceived secular. I don’t see anything wrong with it.”
