Following a deeply moving performance at Rev. Isaac Obofour’s church, Cecilia Marfo’s efforts were rewarded with a substantial amount of GH¢20,000.
The founder of Anointed Palace Chapel, a self-proclaimed fan of Cecilia Marfo, openly acknowledged that one of her songs played a significant role in helping him overcome a challenging period through divine intervention.
Attributing his improved situation to Cecilia Marfo’s music, Rev. Obofour pledged to express his gratitude whenever he had the opportunity to meet her.
True to his commitment, he presented GH¢20,000 in cash to Cecilia Marfo in front of the congregation as a token of appreciation for the positive impact her music had on his life.
“To date, the only song that inspires me is ‘Efunumuba’. God takes you through suffering and then it transcends to grace. So, stay strong. God will never disgrace you, there is nothing they haven’t said about me. But if God has called you, no man can destroy you. We know those who are anointed and no man can destroy that.
“There was this day I was going through a hard time and at that same time I was listening to your song. I promised God that if I triumph in my situation while listening to your song, whenever I meet you, I’ll do my best for you,” he said as he handed over the money to her.
Touching on the back-to-back controversies that Cecilia Marfo has encountered in recent times, Obofour expressed that he usually creates an enabling environment in his church for individuals like her.
“There are some types of people that Ghanaians have a wrong perception about. These are the people I invite to my church.
“Ernest Opoku was in my church some time ago, when negative stories about him were flying on social media. In this country, one single rumour can destroy your reputation. People believe these things without even verifying them,” he added.
In appreciation, Cecilia Marfo who was shocked at the development said; “I don’t know what to say. I didn’t know you were this handsome. When you were preaching, I was just staring at you. Thank you so much.”
