Premarital sex is disgraceful – Lady Prempeh
Gospel musician, Lady Prempeh has expressed her dissatisfaction in the practice of sex before marriage.
According to her, premarital sex is “so disgraceful” although it is considered normal these days adding that, ”I should have followed the path of God rather than such an unfortunate experience which I regret”.
“That’s something, to me, I felt I shouldn’t have done it. I should have waited till I get married. Premarital sex looks normal now but if you know whom you’re serving, that’s a no go area for Him.” he said in an interview with Franky5 on ‘This is Gospel’ on Hitz FM.
Lady Prempeh made a triumphant entry into the local gospel music arena in 2004 with her eight-track punchy, award-winning debut album, Onyame Ne Mekamafo (God is my Advocate).
She followed it four years later with another popular one, Eho Ye (The ‘place’ is good) and then in 2011, she dropped Na Ataban (His Wings).
Her latest work Aseda is out but instead of releasing all the songs on the album, Lady Prempeh says she will be ‘dropping’ the songs one after the other every other month. A move, she hopes would catch on well with other gospel artistes.
Born Esther Abena Nyarkoa Prempeh, Lady Prempeh who got married in August last year is the third of six siblings and is the only female child of her parents, Mr. Paul Prempeh and Madam Cecilia Antwi.
She grew up in Kumasi under the care of her grandmother, Madam Christiana Gyasi.
Away from Gospel musicians and their issues, Lady Prempeh said the one thing she dislikes in the music scene has to do with our music videos.
“The videos do not have any bearing on the song. With the secular songs especially, they just parade girls in the music videos. Every music video must be meaningful and tell a particular story,” she said.
Known for songs such as Aseda, Enka ho da, Beka Meho, Ne Ntaban and Nsohwe Mma Kwa, Lady Prempeh is out with her latest single Me Kaikai and she says it talks about the goodness of God.
Lady Prempeh is one Gospel musician who is known for featuring secular artistes and she said collaborating with secular acts helps her win more souls for God.
