Veteran Ghanaian sound engineer Buddy RoRo has stirred some controversy among certain pastors who have embraced online broadcasting for their services.
Buddy RoRo raised eyebrows by suggesting that social media has a negative, possibly satanic influence.
In the era of social media’s advent, many religious leaders have expressed concerns about its impact, often citing scripture to support their arguments. However, Buddy RoRo, a well-respected music producer, has a different perspective. He believes that Christians should approach their concerns regarding social media with prayer, seeking guidance to purify their intentions before making any decisions.
Buddy RoRo’s perspective challenges the prevailing views on social media within religious circles and encourages a more spiritual approach to dealing with the modern communication landscape.
“Do you know that most pastors spoke against the internet when it first came but now that’s where most of them go to do their live broadcast?
“The person who created Facebook you don’t even know where they come from so as for those claiming it’s ungodly for a secular artiste to write a song for a gospel musician I disagree.
“Even the dress that the pastor is wearing to preach, maybe wherever he bought it from the person might not even be a Christian.
“But when you bring such a dress home you pray to sanctify it and then you wear it to do whatever you decide to do with it,” he said.
