Popular Ghanaian musician, Ofori Amponsah has revealed that he went on a hiatus because a friend he trusted so much destroyed his marriage.
According to the legendary singer in an interview with Kofi Adoma on Kofi TV, he had a meltdown because of the betrayal from his friend and wife.
The Otoolege hit maker said the blow was so devastating that he literally could not write, produce or even perform his songs.
He disclosed that he cut a reclusive figure for three years, crying and praying inside his room while totally shutting down friends.
“Someone I helped entered my home and destroyed my marriage. Someone I opened my gates to could do that to me,” he said.
“That day I had a show at the national theatre but I performed poorly on stage because I was surprised that someone I helped would do that to me. Since then, I couldn’t write, sing or do anything. For about three years I was shut. No shows, nothing. I was in my room. I became lonely.
“The only thing I could remember at that moment was to pray. I was there one day when a prophet called me and advised me that if I don’t run to God, nothing will work out well for me,” he stated.
