Don't play my secular songs – Lord Kenya

Former hip-life star, Abraham Philip Akpor Kojo Kenya, popularly known as Lord Kenya has asked radio presenters and DJs across the country to stop playing songs from his former secular life, which he describes as “ungodly”.
Kenya, who is now a born-again Christian and evangelist said he has repented from his old lifestyle, so anything “worldly” should not be associated with him.
The musician, of “Sika Baa” fame, was speaking at a thanksgiving service organised by Raffle International Schools in Tanoso, Kumasi.
The former rapper said: “If they continue to play my old songs and lead people into destruction, God will hold them [the DJs] accountable not me Lord Kenya,”
“They should stop playing the music – it’s my own intellectual property and I have seen the light now so the DJs should stop enjoying my songs on air” he stressed.
Lord Kenya, now Evangelist Lord Kenya, was puzzled as to why radio presenters preferred to play his secular songs and not songs from his new gospel album, “Christ Life” which was released in 2011.
Kenya is known for popular secular songs such as ‘Driver Susu Ko’, ‘Sika Baa’, ‘Okafuo Didi’, ‘Sika Mpo Nfaneho’ and ‘Born Again’ among others.
He won Artiste of the Year, Hiplife Ariste of the Year, and Hiplife Album of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards 2001, and Best Ghanaian Rap Music Award at the Anansekrom Festival in Canada 2000 among others.
