We’ve channelled Yaw Siki’s support to other charitable projects Sonnie Badu

UK-based Ghanaian gospel musician Sonnie Badu has responded to Yaw Siki’s rejection of any help from them saying they have channelled support for the former hiplife musician into other charitable projects.

He noted that the musician’s explanations for turning down his offer because he made his intentions public are unfounded.

According to the UK-based musician, his team discovered Yaw Siki on social media after he granted JoyNews on MultiTV an interview and subsequently offered to support him.

The former hiplife musician revealed that “I preach in the trotros (Commercial buses). I preach in between lanes in the communities and people give [me money] when I preach. I do not ask but when I finish and some people call me, ‘oh take this, take that’ and with family support, I am able to pay my bills,” he said.

Quoting the scripture to support his decision, he told KMJ in an interview on Daybreak Hitz (Showbiz Review) on Hitz FM that “I love my senior brother Sonnie Badu and I respect him so much and what he did is an act of righteousness but Matthew 6:1-4 says ‘Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven, so when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by others.”

He added that “Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you”, based on this word Jesus is against us doing charitable deeds and blowing our trumpet before us for self-glorification so I am not able to take the offer.”

Reacting to Yaw Siki’s decision to reject his help, Sonnie Badu said on Instagram that, “It has been drawn to our attention that the young man Yaw Siki has rejected our help based on the following reasons: 1. Because I made it public. 2. Because I want fame from him … Lol.”

“I will not answer the second one. I would think at least he would have been thankful to us for speaking about his situation since it had generated a lot of [interest]. However, to answer his first accusation, the only reason we put it out on Instagram and social media was, We discovered him on social media from an interview he granted in the first place. If he feels he did not need help he should not have granted the interview. No normal person would watch that and not want to help.””

The Baba hit singer wished Yaw Siki well in his endeavours and revealed that whatever was allocated him has been channelled into other charitable projects.

“Having said this, whatever was allocated for him has gone into other charitable projects… We wish him well in all his endeavors … It’s still a great thing to serve the Lord so it’s a good decision and step he took since there is nothing in the secular world. We were actually interested in reviving his music in the gospel world as well since I was told he only has one single out…,” Sonnie Badu concluded.
