KODA’s ‘Adooso’ Track Tackles Monetization Of The Church
One of Ghana’s unique Gospel musicians, Kofi Owusu Dua Anto, otherwise known as KODA, has released yet another track seeking to criticize the monetization of the church. KODA was hugely credited for a similar song, ‘Nsem Pii’, which sought to draw attention of the church to what appears to be a drift from the real Christianity. KODA in his new track titled ‘Adosoo’ which roughly translates as ‘too much’ or widespread, talks about the phenomenon where some persons claiming to be pastors extort monies from desperate but sometimes ‘ignorant’ Christians, to pray for them.
The new song, a ‘churchy’ rendition of the late Highlife artiste, Dr. Paa Bobo’s original composition, has already been received particularly by viewers of the video on YouTube. The video, which was loaded on YouTube on January 16, 2016 before the song’s official release on January 17, already has nearly 4,000 views as at the evening of Monday January 17.
Viewers of the video were wowed by the composition and content of the track. Some of the comments on YouTube read, “God bless you KODA! As children of God we must think about this issue. Most churches must be careful of what we do in this end time.” Another viewer, Sterlington Horsoo Jnr. said “God bless you Kofi. The message is clear and straight to the point. Raphael Adu-Gyamfi said “Great song Koda. GOD BLESS YOU. Emmanuel Aidoo said “na this be punch line ooo. adoso ampa” Other comments read “can’t just stop laughing…….nice tune Uncle Kofi.GOD BLESS YOU, “KODA….. YOU ARE TOO MUCH”, “Yewura…this one I tell you ‘wicked’ …nice one” “Hmmm.
Seriously most churches have their share in the song. God bless Koda. Speak against the truth and u will be judged one day”, “Koda, this is exquisite, bomb blasting, undisputed, something to think about and to be stopped one time…. this is eye opener to all God’s children.. beware”, “Wow.. This is a Master piece. Straight to the point. Blessings to you KODA”
