Rap Doctor, Okyeame Kwame has stated that he does not believe in religion and for that reason he doesn’t attend church.
According to the made-in-Ghana brand ambassador, religion has segregated Africa from the world.
He stated this during an interview on “Showbiz Now” on JoyPrime TV.
“For Africa especially Ghana to progress, it has to be a collaborative efforts from all angles. We must not wait for the Government to do everything for us. Religion has not helped us in anyway [because] we end up discriminating against each other all in the name of religion.“

He added tha,t Ghana will be put on the map if celebrities are united.
“If all the celebrities come together to help out, Ghana will become the nation we all want. For instance as a brand ambassador promoting the use of made in Ghana products, Sarkodie could choose a sector like sanitation, Stonebwoy could choose agriculture, Shatta Wale could choose entrepreneur and so on. You know, we can all make small small changes from our little corner. If we all want to wait for the government to do fix the roads, build clinics or provide water to communities, we will wait forever! We need to help each other make Ghana develop.”
Asked about his views on paying tithe in churches, Okyeame replied that he would rather use his money to help the less privileged in society than giving to a “man of God”.
“I personally don’t believe in tithing at all. I would rather use the money to help an orphan go to school than to give it to some “man of God” to chop for free.”
He further stated that, he was not a Christian but believed in spirituality.
“I won’t say I am a Christian because I don’t go to church. However I believe in spirituality. What I mean by that is that I read the Bible and talk to God when I have the time. I don’t do all the wrong things the Bible speaks about like; stealing, lying, fornicating etc.”
He finally added that there is hope for Ghana if we all come together and work hand in hand.
