FOR a long time, female Gospel artistes have been criticised for the way they dress, with their critics claiming it is ungodly; but it seems some of them have had enough of the name-calling.

One of such is Rose Adjei who in an interview with Showbiz, asked all critics to keep quiet because the God they served liked beautiful things.

“Honestly, I think it is time people understood the work of God and how things were done. Who says God does not like beautiful things and which other way can you tell people of his goodness if you do not look good yourself? God is good, He likes things that are appealing so there is nothing wrong with us looking good and dressing well,” she said.

For Rose Adjei, looking good is a way to convince people about God’s blessings and goodness. “When you are going to evangelise, you need to look good and give the person you are talking to a reason to believe that where you are is a better place.

“If you go wearing tattered clothes with your face and hair looking messy, how will they believe you? How will you even convince them? People should let us be,” she stated.

Apart from the clothes, there is a section of the public that believes that wearing makeup, nail extensions among others are for worldly people so it is not acceptable for those who call themselves Christians to do same, but Rose Adjei’s answer was this: “The most important thing is that at the end of the day we do what we are called to do, which is to bring people to God.”

She, however, made it clear that she was in no way endorsing indecent dressing. “I am not saying this to promote certain lifestyles. Look at me; I am not comfortable wearing short dresses so I keep my outfits very decent, yet I look good.”

Rose also talked about her life, especially when she lived in Liberia at a time the country was plunged into war.

“In my journey as a believer, there are several moments that anytime I remember, I just thank God for life and one of them is when I lived in Liberia. I feared for my life, every day brought its own issues but I am grateful God took me through it and I am here today.”

On her music journey she said, “It has not been an easy journey but I am grateful to God for how far I have come. I believe there is more to come and that is what my team and I are working on now.”

Rose Adjei is married to Prophet Rexford Antwi-Adjei, and the couple is blessed with three children. She has backed Christiana Love now Obaapa Christy, Georgia Agyei, Maame Justine and many other Gospel artistes.
