After treating Ghanaians with the release of some of the best hiplife songs, OJ Blaq has shunned secular music for gospel.
Speaking on ‘Celebrity Radar’ on Citi FM on Monday, OJ said the move to do gospel music is based on his encounter with God.
“I feel his presence and my wish is that everyone will feel it too. Because he’s done a lot and I’ve gone through a lot.” He told host, Kwame Dadzie.
He was however hopeful that his new song will pave the way for more spiritual and inspirational songs as he embarks on a crusade to win souls for God.
The Ghana ‘Rick Ross’ however noted that secular artistes are not evil even though he said he would not record secular songs again.
According to him, he believes he has a new calling now, hence his new decision to do solely Gospel.
Few years ago, OJ Blaq was down with kidney failure but according to him God miraculously healed him and that he has now become stronger than before.
Asked what could have contributed to his sickness, the ‘Ghana Rick Ross’ said it was bad lifestyle practices.
“I was not hypertensive, I was not diabetic but I’ll say it’s lifestyle. Too much alcohol, smoking, meat and all that lifestyle did not help. And what I have understood is that wherever you are weak that’s where Satan uses to attack you,” he revealed.
OJ is lover of hockey and an ambassador for COA FS; an immune-boosting drug.
The former Lynx Entertainment artiste now works under OMG (Orakle Music Group) as an artist and owner. Under OMG are a few new acts doing Urban Gospel for the propagation of the Word of Christ.
He is credited with songs like; ‘Chalewote‘, ‘Target’, ‘Mewo Mmaa‘, among others.
