Ghanaian gospel musician and evangelist Cecilia Marfo has said that prior to her popular song “Washawasa” going global, she thought it was negative publicity.
In an interview on a Ghanaian TV channel, Cecilia Marfo stated that she almost cried when she realized her video had gone viral with other people trying to imitate her. According to her, she saw the videos on how some were teasing her but then God meant good for her.
She said the trend is God’s way of blessing her for something she prayed for. “I almost cried because when I saw the video, I thought it was negative publicity. I said God is this where they’ve sent me to? But God said I should be calm. Then I asked God, what problem is resurfacing”?
“The trend was an even bigger trend which I did not know about. It was as a result of my prayer that this happened to me”.
“A lot has happened to me and God said he is using this to make me happy and smile again. It hasn’t been easy but this has made me smile after the storm. When the song is sung, I become happy, I see the videos and it brings joy to me. I have recorded this song for two years but it’s now that it has become a hit,” she said.
Cecilia Marfo became a popular person globally when her song from a video shared online went viral. Cecilia Marfo was singing “What shall I say unto the Lord” in her own style (Washawasay) which caught the attention of many.
