Read his account.
” I am actually getting a bit worked out by this. The truth of the matter is the young man started getting offended when my PR started asking him questions to get to know him. Like who his spiritual father is, would he like to go to any Bible school ? What church does he belong to, now these are standard questions we normally ask because we believe that even though you have a calling you have to be directed. After my PR Spoke to him he did say he would get back to us. Only for us to hear it on the radio, when he was asked by my PR again why he said that on radio he answered and said he felt the questions where as though he was applying for a loan .. Now I love the youthful seal but being in ministry for many years you will get to the point where those who pretend to lead you on will leave you because you have now become a burden on them … Now I officially close this chapter and focus on more orphans and widows as we have been doing already ..”
Earlier, Sonnie Badu laughed off reports that suggested that his decision to publicly announce his intent to support Yaw Siki was for fame.
” 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 intrest. 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. Having said this , what ever 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…”
