Great Ampong, the popular musician known for his hit song “Akokofunu,” has voiced his agreement with the controversial belief of his fellow musician, Sonnie Badu, regarding the spiritual dangers of consuming pork.
Great Ampong, a well-known gospel musician, has revealed that he has abstained from eating pork ever since he became a born-again Christian in the 1980s.During an interview with Amansan Krakye, Great Ampong disclosed that he used to consume pork before he became a Christian. However, he stated that he has refrained from eating pork since around 1989 when he became a born-again Christian.
Great Ampong further elaborated on his stance, stating that he came to the realization that pork was a dangerous animal after reading about Jesus casting demons into a herd of pigs in the Bible, which subsequently drowned in the sea. He also disclosed that none of his family members, including his wife and children, consume pork and are strictly prohibited from doing so.
“As a devout Christian since the ’80s, I made the decision to stop consuming pork, especially after learning from the Bible that it is not a good animal,” he concluded during the Showbiz segment on Property FM.
