Award-winning Ghanaian musician, Ofori Amponsah in a recent interview has indicated why he had to stop doing music for some time stating that his own friend he trusted so much destroyed his marriage. He noted that he couldn’t stand the betrayal from his friend and wife.
He revealed he got very devastated that he could not write, produce or even perform his songs during that period.
In the interview, he said;
“Someone I helped entered my home and destroyed my marriage. Someone I opened my gates to could do that to me.
That day I had a show at the national theatre but I performed poorly on stage because I was surprised that someone I helped would do that to me. Since then, I couldn’t write, sing or do anything. For about three years I was shut. No shows, nothing. I was in my room. I became lonely.
The only thing I could remember at that moment was to pray. I was there one day when a prophet called me and advised me that if I don’t run to God, nothing will work out well for me.”
