Sonnie Badu, gospel musician and founder of Rockhill Chapel, reveals his inclination towards secular music, including artists like Black Sherif, Davido, and Burna Boy.

The well-known clergyman’s comment follows his previous sharing of a screenshot showcasing his “Spotify Wrapped” playlist, which highlights the most frequently played tracks by a user on the music streaming service, Spotify.

The screenshot displayed Sonnie Badu’s strong inclination for listening to songs by Davido, Burna Boy, Sarkodie, and Black Sherif.

The post caused a stir on social media, with numerous internet users questioning why a pastor and gospel musician would engage with such songs.

During the latest episode of United Showbiz, hosted by MzGee on UTV, Sonnie Badu clarified that the screenshot he posted did not belong to his own account.

According to his statement, Sonnie Badu explained that he had obtained the image from a different post on X, mistakenly believing it was a compilation of popular songs without any specific account attached to it. Upon realizing his error, he promptly issued an apology.

He explained that it was an innocent mistake he made. Initially, he came across a playlist on X and mistakenly assumed it was a compilation of popular songs without any specific account attached to it. However, within just 24 hours, he experienced the backlash and realized his error. In response, he promptly issued an apology.

Sonnie Badu defended himself by stating that there is nothing inappropriate about his listening to artists of that nature. He justified it by saying that he listens to secular African music in order to stay current with the latest trends and learn from their musical abilities.

He mentioned artists such as Burna Boy, Black Sherif, Angelique Kidjo, and Richard Bona, and expressed his intention to integrate the African music sounds from their songs into his own style of music.

“I see nothing wrong with including Burna Boy in my playlist. In fact, even my children enjoy listening to his music at home. Seeing Davido’s success at the State Farm in Atlanta has motivated me to strive for similar achievements, and I find inspiration in artists like him.”

I can’t say I don’t listen to them. My friend’s children play and I enjoy them too, I like to listen to them and I want to see what I can adapt to my music. I need that African sound. I like to listen to all of them to see how I can always get better with my music, he said.
