- Gospel musician Sammie Okposo has reacted to a trending video of a pastor faulting instrumentalists who charge churches they play for
- Okposo shared a portion of the clip on his page and faulted the teachings of the man of God
- The singer posed a question to the pastor as to the kind of person he is for also receiving money from the house of God
A video clip of the founder and leader of the Kharis Church in the United Kingdom (UK), David Antwi, has elicited mixed reactions from Christian faithfuls on social media, following the topic he preached about.
The man of God had submitted that instrumentalists who play for churches and receive due payment are thieves and should also be identified as the devil’s cousins.
Among those that reacted to the video is popular Nigerian gospel musician Sammie Okposo. The singer reposted a portion of the clip on his official Instagram page, accompanied with a lengthy caption in which he criticized Antwi’s submission.
Okposo noted that he had never heard of the pastor and has no affiliation with him, while categorically stating that the clergyman had made uninformed and misguided statements.

He made it clear that he has no beef with Antwi, but he is against his statement. Okposo wondered why the man of God had resorted to insulting music professionals who have taken the decision to earn a living by working for churches.
Some musicians serve as volunteers in their home churches but the ones who decide that they want to get paid cos they do it full time as their main source of lively hood should be paid
"Why are you insulting and publicly shaming professional musicians who work in church and earn a living with their skill calling them thieves????and they are Satan’s first cousin??? Please sir what bible school did you attend that you were taught what you are saying? Who ordained you???," his post read in part.
In conclusion, the singer asked Antwi the kind of man he is by also collecting money in form of offerings, honorariums, etc from the church.
