Ghana’s gospel gem, Onestone Aduguz has debunked claims that suggest his hit track “Odor Bi-LorLor Vivi” is a secular music and not gospel.
According to him, the song was composed to foster change and development in marriages and among couples.
Speaking to Spot On News in Accra on Saturday, the budding gospel musician explained that “Odor Bi-LorLor Vivi” was designed to be performed during an occasion of marriage, hence not secular.
The romantic gospel song which was released in April this year was produced by SedemMixBeatzGH and seek to advise youth to embrace marriage and not to engage in fornication.
“Many young people want to be in romantic relationships but don’t have marriage as their focus. This is not the divine plan of God! That is why I sang the song to champion the course of marriage among couples,”Onestone Aduguz added.
He noted that due to how some gospel musicians disregard romantic gospel songs most Christians did not get access to love songs that they could sing during marriage ceremony, hence were compelled to sing songs which they tagged as “satanic.”
Onestone Aduguz described as “hypocritical” how Christians perform songs from the camp of secular artistes including Daddy Lumba, Ofori Amponsah and Kwabena Kwabena and called on them to embrace gospel love songs.
“There was a story that made headlines that Soni Badu danced to Kwabena Kwabena’s ‘Tokro,’ while another video which circulated on social media saw a pastor dancing to Akatakyie’s ‘’Awarepa” during customary marriage. All these scenarios point to the fact that the gospel industry lack love songs that they could use to unfold their romantic stories to celebrate marriage,” he added.
Onestone Aduguz strongly believe that intimate relationship and marriage is from the creator, stressing that “there is nothing wrong with Gospel musicians composing and performing love songs to celebrate love ones on special occasions.”
He also expelled claims that he was in support of songs that promote illicit sex, saying ” I am not in support of songs that promote fornication among the youth.”
He stated that, there was time for everything as there is time for songs of salvation and redemption.
Onestone Aduguz was initially known in the showbiz circles as Timothy A. Adugu before rebranding to Onestone Aduguz, he is a product of Valley View University, Accra Academy (Bleoo) and Presbyterian Training College.
The multi-talented gospel artist expressed readiness to change the gospel terrene to make it more enjoyable and competitive.
