Ghanaian gospel musician Isaac Opoku, widely known as Yaw Sarpong says he has no problem collaborating with secular musicians.
Contrary to views held by some industry players, he thinks there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a gospel artiste working with secular musicians.
“The fact is that in the bible Jesus told us that we should go out to those who haven’t seen the light if we believe we have seen the light we should let them also see the light. If they are in the world we are supposed to bring them back to God,” he told Becky host of E Vibes show.
He added how he got a collaboration with rapper Sarkodie after the latter named him as his favourite musician in an interview.
“As for Sarkodie he was asked in an interview “what music he liked” and he said I Yaw Sarpong was his favourite artist. He was also asked whether he would love to collaborate with Yaw Sarpong and he said if he were to come today he will be happy to help. He was then asked if he had any plans himself to do something with me and he said he had an upcoming project and maybe after I am done I will collaborate with him when he comes or I will seek for myself.
“Someone called me from the USA and asked me to listen to what he was saying in the US and I went to one of the websites and I saw that it was true. So I called him and asked that we work together and he said yes.”
The two have a song ‘Ahobrase3’ and are reportedly working on more projects.
“Sarkodie is a very humble musician, he supported and put his weight behind the song. He is a very good musician and we have more to do together,” he explained.
Yaw Sarpong has revealed he is set to release more songs with Sarkodie, Kofi Kinaata, Samini and Stonebwoy.
