It is boring to say Nana Kwame Ampadu is a music legend. With over 800 songs to his credit, he is a household name when it comes to the highlife genre in Africa.

For more than four decades, Nana Ampadu churned out some of the most famous highlife songs. Some of them are ‘Obra’, ‘Oman Bo Adwo’, ‘Kukrukukru’ and ‘Agatha’ are popular today.

The music legend, after several decades of great successes in music, has hung up his music boots. He is now winning souls for Christ.

He made the revelation in an interview on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM with Doreen Andoh Tuesday.

“Lately, I’m doing the work of God as an Evangelist. I have a church where I worship but I go around in many churches… I have been receiving invitations and I go and share the word of God with them,” Nana Ampadu disclosed.

Now called Evangelist Nana Kwame Ampadu, the music great revealed that he started preaching in 1994 but was called to God’s ministry in 1998.

To him, doing God’s work has “given me respect among people that I meet” and “no job is better than the working of God. I just love it. I love preaching.”

Apart from preaching and winning souls for Christ, the highlife legend, who formed the Africa Brother’s Band in 1963, also writes films and television series scripts.

After his first major script ‘Abaawa Mary’ in 1988, he has written several other scripts for Danfo BA Movie Productions.

Asked where he gets his writing inspiration from, he simply said from “my maker [God].”
