Speaking at the 6th in the series of programmes organized by the Actors Presenters Professionals and Musicians for Christ at the Trinity Baptist Church at Madina, near Legon in Accra, he said God sometimes uses people with bad and evil character to change others.
He said people should not judge actors by the roles that they play. The theme of the programme was taken from 2 Cor.5;11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men….
