Reverend Isaac Obofour has finally come out to clear the air on the attacks from social media users after a video of him captured at the recent Ridge Condors all-black party in Kumasi surfaced online.
Many netizens could not understand why the founder of the Anointed Palace Chapel was seen among a crowd primarily comprised of Ghanaian influencers, slay queens, secular artists and going on the stage to spray money on the likes of Ypee
In the midst of the backlash, Rev. Obofour has now shared the motives behind his actions in the video that is circulating on social media.
He explained how he found himself at the event, emphasizing that it was a harmless invitation from a childhood friend who was organizing the party.
He stated, “Exactly a week ago, my very good, wealthy, and humble friend invited me to a party. He is the CEO of Ridge Condos, and he extended this invitation to me because we go way back as childhood friends. If you ever meet this man, you’d find that he is remarkably down-to-earth. He treats his employees with respect and is a genuine example of godliness, offering hope to the hopeless.”
Rev. Obofour continued, “We are currently involved in significant projects in Techiman, so when we returned to Kumasi, he informed me that he was hosting an All-Black party that evening and asked me to join him for company. I want to emphasize that it was a party, not a nightclub. We spent time at his office upstairs where he treated me kindly. Later, we made our way down to the party grounds, where we encountered Nana B and the CEO of Taabea Bitters. I spent time with these individuals, and we sat at a table together. I was fully aware of the presence of top bloggers and influencers, but because I have nothing to hide, I was there.”
Rev. Obofour expressed his surprise at the various reactions and claims that suggested he was at a nightclub. He stated, “I came across numerous captions insinuating that I was at a nightclub. How? If you have an issue with me, don’t tarnish my reputation. Don’t make baseless claims. Even if I had been at a nightclub, so what?”
He further elaborated that many of his life’s challenges have arisen from his associations with fellow pastors and emphasized that he will only go where he feels accepted. He asserted, “Jesus went where he was accepted. I’ve always maintained that most of the problems I’ve faced in my life were instigated by pastors I deeply respected and held in high regard. There came a time when they joined forces against me, with some even attempting to have me unjustly incarcerated. They simply wanted to bring me down.”
