Mmebusem, known in real life as Justice Hymns is not bothered by the criticism of his comedy skits.
The Kumawood actor has intimated that he is focused on his work and that he’s given a cold shoulder to some Christians saying he is ridiculing Jesus with his funny videos.
A tall list of Ghanaians including veteran gospel singer Amy Newman, men of God Pastor Samson Amoateng, Pastor Brian Amoateng, Rev Seth Acquah Harrison and actress Jocelyn Dumas among others have asked Mmebusem to desist from mimicking Jesus.
But in a chat with Showbiz recently, the popular comic actor refuted claims that he’s mocking Jesus and the Christian faith but was using a unique way to spread the word of God.
He subtly jabbed his critics saying they want to use him to be famous.
Mmebusem said;“I don’t care about the criticisms because they are condemning things they have no idea of. I just want to tell them to be focused on their work and stop fighting for God, ”
“This is my way of spreading the Gospel and no one can stop me from doing my work. Jesus Christ has not asked for fighters so they should concentrate on their work as servants of God,” he stated.
According to him, he is a staunch Christian who will not deliberately subject his faith to mockery.
“What I’m doing now is not
something new because my fans who followed my works during my Kumawood days will attest that using scriptures has been my style but fortunately, I’m getting more attention now because of social media.
“I always say I was born to preach through entertainment because I can see Satan is using entertainment to win souls so with that same platform and means, I want to reach out to the masses about the word of God.
“I am not going to stop what I think is right unless God stops me Himself. If what I do is from God, it will stand and no man can collapse it. We are all working for God’s kingdom but with different approaches so they should wish me well,” he stated.
The ‘man of the moment’ revealed that his pastor and church are solidly behind him and there is nothing going to make him stop his skits.
“Apart from my pastor and church, I receive a lot of encouragement from other unknown pastors who reach out to me on phone. I believe my critics have not considered the content of what I do. I don’t misquote the Bible because I know I’m evangelising through comedy so people should concentrate on the good side,” he stated.
