Nigerian musician, Kas, has revealed the reason behind his shocking decision to quit the music industry in the latter of 2017 and become a pastor.
In a chat with Vanguard, “fimile” crooner who described himself as an “ashawo musician”, explained how he transited from the music making craft to the altar.
Kas said, “Yes, I’m receiving the anointing from the Holy Spirit, real talk, it’s no joke. I don’t know when people will believe I’m saying the truth. The thing is when you have been called people find it hard to believe. I’m an ashawo musician, I’m not an afro-beat artiste; I always say it that I’m an ashawo musician.
“When I was 7-years old I made a covenant with God that if He can make me a popular musician, in return I will serve Him. God did his part and I became a popular musician but in return I was running.
“Six pastors at six different times told me that I’m supposed to be a pastor. After a while, my mom told me that if God really called me He would reveal Himself to me in a dream. It was like a joke but God later revealed Himself to me and I saw everything from the beginning of the ministry to what it would end up being”.
Speaking on if he would maintain the kind of lifestyle he led before becoming a minister of God, he said, “There is a chapter in the Bible where Jesus went to Matthew, the tax collector’s house. And going to his house is like going to a strip club. People criticized Jesus for going to a place like Matthew’s house because it was a place of sin. But Jesus told them he came to the world to die for sinners and not the saints.
“If Pastor Adeboye goes to a bar or a club today, I guarantee you that more than 20-people would follow him, wanting to give their lives to God. As a pastor, preaching all the time in your church is not the real calling. A church is a group of people not the physical building.
“I dare Pastors Adeboye, Ashimolowo, Okotie, Oyakhilome, and others to go to bars or clubs and preach, the people will give their lives to Christ even more than when you just tell them to come to church and give tithes else you will die. It’s a lie, if you don’t pay your tithe you won’t die”.
