Award-winning Ghanaian rapper and singer, Kofi Kinaata has added his voice to the debate of whether churches are really portraying love like they should and has stated that there is no love in the church.
The Fante rapper made this assertion in an interview with Accra based Starr Fm on Thursday.
Kofi Kinaata has made headlines for days now since he released a single titled ‘Things Fall Apart’ where he addressed numerous societal issues of major concern. Many after listening to the rapper and his delivery on the song are applauding him and tagging him as a philosopher for an excellent job than.
Speaking to host Francis Abban of the Morning Starr program on Starr Fm on Thursday, the musician from the Western Region stated that the church of today does not portray love, citing instances of opening up credit unions and giving loans to church members for interest. He questioned if that was love. “God has patience. There is no love in the church. We are not loving our neighbors as ourselves in the church. The monies they take are not used to spread love, because some churches even have credit unions and members pay back loans with interest,” he said.
The rapper again described himself as a part time church goer, establishing that the leaders of the church of today live lives which are questionable, giving him doubts as to whether they are fit for role models or not.
