Being born again is a tough job — Lord Kenya

BY: Jayne Buckman-Owoo

It seems like yesterday but it’s been five years since rap heavyweight champion, Lord Kenya, became born again and though he lives a very fulfilled life now, he admits that it hasn’t been easy.

In an interview with Showbiz last Tuesday, Evangelist Lord Kenya admitted that the journey has not been easy but it has been worth it and he has no regrets whatsoever, ‘’ God in His wisdom knows why He brought me into the Kingdom and He has been very faithful to me,’’ he said.

Touching on some of the challenges he has gone through during this period, Lord Kenya said that when he was in the world, he was doing concerts and it was bringing in a lot of money.

“ When I do a concert, I know how much I can get, when I preach, I don’t charge, how do I take care of the family but I know the one who called me is faithful, He always makes a way.”

When asked whether there were certain things he used to do in the past that he misses now, Lord Kenya replied in an emphatic “no adding that it is only when one does not understand those things that he will miss them, “I am very fulfilled because the one who called me is faithful and He makes a way when there seems to be no way.”

This reporter asked Lord Kenya if he was a happy person and this is what he had to say, “I am a very joyous person, happiness is based on circumstances. I have Jesus, the one who will be there forever so I am a very joyous person.”

Reacting to Ofori Amponsah’s return to secular music, Lord Kenya said “it is so sad. We both know where we are coming from, for him to leave this grace and go back is something else. The righteous man can fall seven times but God can let him stand. On the other hand, if any of the souls he(Ofori Amponsah) saved get lost, he will be accountable for those souls,” he said.

Lord Kenya used the opportunity to outline the programme for his fifth anniversary celebration. Since he had the encounter with God on October 28 five years ago, there will be a prophetic revival from Wednesday, October 28, to Friday October 30, at the Face of Grace Covenant Temple near Melcom, Ahodwo in Kumasi. There will also be Stars and Fans Fellowship on October 31, the climax will be a Thanksgiving Service on November 1.

According to Lord Kenya, artistes like Uncle Ato, Brother Sammy, Anita Afriyie, Agnes Opoku Agyemang, Prophet Seth Frimpong, Agape Incoporated, Mercy Asiedu, Pastor Joe Beecham and a host of others will all be passing through.

To his fans, he said, “I love you all, above that, know that Christ loves you unconditionally.”
