Afropop songstress, Ama Nova born Mercy Sackey has disclosed in an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye that sometimes doing secular music instead of gospel makes her feel guilty.
Ama Nova who’s late mother was a Pastor revealed on Kastle FM’S Entertainment Show that due to the critics she got for doing secular music from members of her mother’s church she stopped going to church for sometime.
She narrated “When I started music I believe that some of the critics came from church because a lot of the people expected that I will do gospel music because I’m a Pastor’s child.
“It didn’t happen like that but I think that I felt a bit guilty for doing secular music so at point I couldn’t attend choir rehearsals and I couldn’t also sing in church,” Ama Nova said.
“Because all the older women will come to you and advice you about your dressing and also about the dangers involved with doing secular music and use Ebony’s case as an example why I should refrain from secular music,” she revealed.
She added on Kastle FM “It was really hectic for me at the time and at a point I even stopped going to church for sometime. With time they came to understand that the music I’m doing is not entirely bad.
“I’m doing love songs, God is love honestly and God gave me this talent because you can’t do it if it’s not a gift from God,” she told Amansan Krakye.
