I am tempted to return to hiplife sometimes – Pastor Yaw Siki
Although Hiplife has long since been associated with raunchy (and some might argue sinful) lyrical content, some of the biggest names in the industry have found God along the course of their careers. One of the most notable names is Yaw Siki.
Brother Yaw, as he is now called ‘in Christ’ spoke to TV3 on Wednesday, November 7. Here, the Evangelist made it known that he is sometimes tempted to go back to his old ways.
Do you miss the huge amounts of money you made as a Hiplife musician, was the question. Here’s what Brother Yaw Siki had to say…
“Even then, I was not having big money, I was yet to make it big…It was even when I got into Christ that I saw the biggest money in my life.
“It was an offering, someone just called me and said Yaw, this is what God wants me to give to you, and he gave it to me,” he told New Day host Johnnie Hughes.

Since 2013, he decided to win souls for Christ and forget about secular music.
He went on to say…
“Honestly sometimes when I am there and I see some of the people that I started rapping with, and I see they are at certain levels, I feel that if I were there, I would have been up too, but I remember that I have a mission to fulfill, and that is what is more important, because many people will be blessed.
“I am not going back, even though I am tempted to, even though I am tested to, even though there are things that want me to go back, I am not going back because I am not fulfilled there…I wasn’t fulfilled, I was empty, when I came to Christ, preaching…. These works make me fulfilled.”
