Bisa Kdei reveals influence of Methodist Preacher behind his decision to boycott church service

Highlife sensation Bisa Kdei revealed that he has ceased attending church services.

The artist expressed that while he remains a devout believer, he chooses to worship privately, citing concerns over exploitative behaviors and a lack of compassion within some religious institutions.

“It’s been a while since I went to church but it doesn’t mean I am not a worshipper of God,” clarified Bisa Kdei, emphasizing that his faith is deeply rooted in his heart.

The musician, known for hits like “Because of Money,” criticised what he sees as a trend of pastors demanding money for prayers and services.

“One needs money for prayers, these days. The pastor has asked for money for his service, where will I find the money? Everybody is using schemes and tricks,” he lamented.

Bisa Kdei expressed dismay at the disparity between wealthy church leaders and struggling congregants, asserting, “I do not want to be part of a church that has a prosperous leader but destitute members.”

He also recounted a personal incident where a pastor refused to pray for his deceased mother because she hadn’t been a regular attendee, leading him to question the sense of such practices.

“When my mother died, a pastor was asked to pray for her but he said my mom had not been coming to church so he would not,” he recounted. “It was a big problem for me so I even suggested to my father to stop going to the church because it doesn’t make sense.

“We were all Methodists of so many years and if you utter these words, it doesn’t make sense,” he stressed, adding he has “a lot of reasons” for staying away from church.

“Now, my offering is given to the needy,” Kdei added, highlighting his shift towards direct charitable contributions rather than traditional church offerings.

His decision reflects growing concerns among some about the commercialization of religious practices and the need for more genuine compassion within religious communities.
