Sonnie Badu replies: We’ve channelled Yaw Siki’s support to other charitable projects
Gospel musician Sonnie Badu has responded to Yaw Siki’s rejection of help from him saying “they have channelled support for the former hiplife musician into other charitable projects.”
According to the UK-based Ghanaian musician, his team discovered Yaw Siki on social media after JoyNews on MultiTV aired an interview he offered them.
The former hip-life musician, Yaw Siki had revealed on hitz FM 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.”
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.””
Sonnie Badu 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.
