Hiplife artiste now turned evangelist, Yaw Siki has revealed he sometimes gets jealous of his colleagues in the Hiplife industry who are making great successes with their careers.
The Tema based rapper made a resolution to stop writing secular music after he was involved in a near fatal accident on the Tema-Motorway road. The incident which happened on April 15, 2013, led to the “Wope Dodo” singer’s admission to the hospital for several months.
The Tema based artist whose song Wope Dodo made him a household name in 2011, said he was healed by God after he prayed for forgiveness and healing. It was at that point that he decided to quit secular music and win souls for Christ.
However, after being born-again for five years, could it be that all may not be well in the life of Yaw Siki who was officiated as a pastor early this year.
In an interview with TV3’s New Day on Thursday, Yaw Siki said sometimes the enviable success of his colleagues including Sarkodie, R2Bees, Yaa Pono, tempts him to abandon his new way of life.
“Honestly, sometimes when I see some of the musicians I started out with and where they are now, I ask myself if I were still in the secular music business, would I be up there too?”
“But then I remember that I have a mission to fulfil, and that is what is more important because many people will we blessed,” he said.
Although the Hiplife artiste turned preacher, Yaw Siki admitted that his colleagues are making it big with music but he’ll never return to Hiplife because the Abrahamic God has something valuable for him as far as he’s doing His work with all diligence.
“I am not going back even though I am tempted to sometimes. I am not going back because I wasn’t fulfilled there.”
‘I was empty when I came to Christ and started preaching and working for the Lord makes me fulfilled,” Yaw Siki told Johnnie Hughes, host of TV3’s New Day.
