The Ghana Film Classification Committee (FCC) has requested all of its in-house content, including the pornographic content he presented weeks earlier with classification documentation, from Prophet 1 alias Opambour, a well-known man of God.
This comes after he posted sexually graphic content on his privately owned radio station a few weeks ago as a precursor to a sermon he was about to deliver.
The video, which was actually retrieved from a Nigerian pono hub, showed a male actor dressed as a fetish priest and was ready to get down on the fema, as reported by www.hotghnews.com when the incident popped up.
Opambour, who was preaching against the schemes used by fetish priests, particularly those who go about sleeping with their clientele, wanted to utilize the film to explain his sermon and give the message a lot more weight.
He ordered his producers to suspend the programming and swiftly pull the plugs just as it was about to go down. Of course, he sprinkled his customary wit throughout the lecture.
His actions, on the other hand, have not impressed the regulatory body, which has chastised him for the infraction.
Read the complete statement from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) below:
