Ghanaian gospel artiste, Brother Fire has opened up for the first time his bitter encounter with Dr. Sonnie Badu after meeting the renowned gospel musician now turned Man of God for the first time in his life.
According to the ‘Adom Bi’ singer, he received the biggest embarrassment in his career as a gospel musician when he met Sonnie Badu (someone he considers his role model) at the Royal Fiesta Hotel, Accra, and decided to take a photo with him.
Bro Fire shared his humiliating experience with Sonnie during an interview with Nana Osei Kesse (Mr Bonez) on the ‘Music Plus’ Show on Kessben TV.
The Kumasi-based worship leader revealed that Sonnie Badu made him feel less of a human when they met because of the hostile reception the Rockhill Church pastor gave him.
Narrating the incident, Bro Fire explained that Pastor Brian Amoateng of iYES Conference fame personally called him to meet Sonnie Badu because of the love he (Bro Fire) has for the gospel music legend.
During the meet-up, though Sonnie Badu didn’t give him a warm reception, he still wanted to take a photograph with the ‘Baba’ hitmaker. The person taking the picture told Sonnie that Bro Fire looks like him but this harmless comment made Dr Badu make a bold statement that Bro Fire looks nowhere like him and for that matter, the photographer shouldn’t make a mistake and compare the two of them.
Bro Fire said after hearing this from his mentor, he was moved to tears and felt so ashamed of himself. He kept asking himself what was wrong with him for Sonnie to make that degrading statement about him.
Though till now, he still remembers vividly what happened on that day, Bro Fire made it clear that he still loves Sonnie Badu for being a great Man of God and he holds no grudges against him.
