Gospel artiste, Ernest Opoku has been adviced to seek forgiveness from actress Gladys Mensah Boaku (NAYAS) so as to have his piece of mind.
Rev Mensah Bonsu suggested to GN TV’s Pamela Boateng, an apology by Opoku will be the right thing to do.
‘‘Whenever I sin, I rebuke myself and confess my sins to God. God did not come to condemn us. Condemnation is not biblical. When you wrong someone, you need to accept and ask for forgiveness and determine it won’t recur. It’s good Ernest says he’s sought forgiveness from God,” stated Rev. Bonsu.
“My problem is, if he hasn’t sought forgiveness from Nayas, he should do so, so she can freely forgive him. It is obvious Nayas is doing all these out of pain.”
He also spoke about whether Gospel artistes should be paid when they perform at churches.
‘‘We all have different callings so I won’t condemn anyone. Some of my colleagues charge because of the dubious behaviours of some pastors. I once went to minister in a church and after the ministration; the host who was supposed to see to my welfare was nowhere to be found. Ideally, musicians shouldn’t charge.”
A live worship session on Adom FM ended abruptly when an actress made her way into the studios of the station to attack Gospel artiste, Ernest Opoku on Monday, May 14, 2018.
The visibily angry Nayas physically attacked Opoku with a cane.
The attack follows Opoku’s admitting that he made a mistake by having an affair with the actress which resulted in a pregnancy.
He blamed the devil for the affair, and is said to have pleaded with pastors and the general public to pray for him so he will not yield to temptations.
“Mistakes are committed by human beings. I am not an angel. The Bible says the righteous shall fall seven times but God shall lift him up. Pray for me so that God continues to lift me up. The fact that I have made a mistake does not mean the Lord has forsaken me,” explained Opoku.
The actress born Gladys Mensah Boaku stormed the MultiMedia-owned station to revenge the comments she found unfortunate.
Attempt by people at the staion did not stop Boaku, who claimed she would only forgive Opoku if he retracts his statement, and asks for forgiveness by going down on his knees.
Opoku stayed in the building to avoid further embarrasement.
