Ghanaian comedian Derrick Kwabena Bonney, known by his stage name DKB, has criticised Pentecost TV, which belongs to the Pentecost Church in Ghana, for being judgmental during one of its morning show programs. In a video posted on his official Twitter page, DKB expressed his displeasure with the host’s attitude towards artists who produce secular music, stating that they are considered to be on the devil’s side.

He took issue with the host’s question about why there are lookalikes for secular artists, but not for gospel musicians in the country. He described the host’s comments as judgmental and hypocritical, as gospel songs are often not allowed during intimate moments of the church’s leaders or even Christians at large. He argued that referring to artists whose songs are enjoyed in the bedroom as people on the “other side” was unfair.

DKB, who is a member of the Pentecost Church, expressed disappointment with the channel’s host after watching the channel for the first time. He urged the channel to refrain from being judgmental towards secular artists and to recognise their contribution to the entertainment industry in Ghana.

The comedian’s comments have sparked a conversation about the relationship between the church and secular music in Ghana. While some have supported DKB’s view, others have defended the host’s comments, arguing that the church should focus on promoting gospel music.
