Yaw Sarpong who collaborated with the rapper. Sarkodie on his “Ahobrase3” song which happens to be one of his greatest collabos and the rapper’s favorite tune revealed that the views on some musicians in the gospel fraternity not to feature secular musicians due to the perception that God frowns on such collabos is wrong.
Speaking in an interview with JoyNew’s Becky, Yaw Sarpong revealed that God has commanded Christians to bring others who are lost into the light.
“The fact is that in the bible Jesus told us that we should go out to those who haven’t seen the light if we believe we have seen the light we should let them also see the light. If they are in the world we are supposed to bring them back to God,” he said.
Yaw Sarpong also recounted how he was able to secure a collaboration deal with Sarkodie by saying that he mentioned him as one of his favorite acts in the music scene.
“As for Sarkodie he was asked in an interview ‘what music he liked’ and he said I Yaw Sarpong was his favourite artiste. He was also asked whether he would love to collaborate with Yaw Sarpong and he said if he were to come today he will be happy to help” he noted.
“He was then asked if he had any plans himself to do something with me and he said he had an upcoming project and maybe after I am done I will collaborate with him when he comes or I will seek for myself,” he added.
He continued: “Someone called me from the USA and asked me to listen to what he was saying in the US and I went to one of the websites and I saw that it was true. So I called him and asked that we work together and he said yes.”
Yaw Sarpong further revealed that Sarkodie is one of the most humble personalities he has encountered in the industry, adding that they have a project underway.
