Chemphe Now A Church Choir Leader

ChemphePopular Ghanaian musician, Henry Agyekum Chemphe popularly known as Chemphe, says he is a ‘minister of God’ and associated with that than references as Ghana’s R. Kelly.

The silky-voiced singer was speaking on Sunny FM’s Christian Entertainment review programme on Saturday.

He explained that although he still ministers at church, his reason for doing love songs commercially, stems from some rough experiences in his family while growing up.

“I grew up in a family where I didn’t see much love between my father and my mother and my prayer to God was Father, I want to change my generation. My generation should be able to love each other and this issue of divorce shouldn’t happen, Besides God is love”. he stated.

He further refuted the claim that he has veered off the gospel scene because his current style of music has a purpose which is to address issues in society.

The ‘No Pampanaa’ hit maker admitted that some churches still have troubles accepting him and recalled a time when he mounted the podium to sing at a church, only to be welcomed with scorn.

He noted that the reaction from the congregation took him off balance initially, but it did not deter him from singing to his maker as he now heads his church choir. Again, he advised that people should stop being judgmental.

“We should stop judging and rather focus on loving”. Minister Chemphe concluded.
