Leaving The SDA Church Was Part Of The Divine Move That Gave Me My Breakthrough – Kwaku Manu Reveals



Iconic Ghanaian movie actor, Kwaku Manu has strongly argued that leaving the Seventh-Day Adventist Church gradually led him into his breakthrough in his acting career.

Kwaku Manu stated that he used to be an SDA member but he moved to Mama Vida’s church because it’s a fitting and conducive place for him.

In addition to this disclosure, he disabused his audience of the perception that one must die in the very church they were born into.

“It is not true, “examine your life. Everyone has a vision and a mission with which they came into this life.” he asserted.

According to the actor, based on the fact that his job involves interacting with many people, he needs ‘an arm’ that is heavy and strong to push him forward, both physically and spiritually”.

The Ghanaian actor gave the impression the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church was not in full support of his acting career, and the church was also not spiritually fortified to keep him protected on the rise.

“In my speaking, it can happen that some people are in favour or against. I’m an actor. It’s a job that involves multitudes [also]. If your spirit is not heavy and strong, you cannot stand before or lead multitudes,” the Ghanaian actor said.

“So looking at the home I am from, and looking at myself – I always say my spirit speaks to me – I couldn’t have come out [of obscurity, staying there]” he added.

“You know God can destine you for greatness but if care is not taken, human beings can suppress it? Moses was told to take the Israelites to the Promised Land but he couldn’t make it himself. So, you can hear God’s voice alright but ask yourself if the church you’re in can take you to your expected end,” Kwaku Manu posited.

According to Kwaku Manu, the SDA church does not like moviemaking.

“It’s like being a Jehovah’s Witness and wanting to become president. How can that happen? So if you have that vision, you need to leave that place [congregation]” he affirmed.

Kwaku Manu also revealed that there are certain instances in the Bible where God told certain people to move away from their present location, if they wanted to be successful and we’ll established.

“This is what led me to Mama Vida. I had initially not planned to go join the church,” the Kumawood actor said while explaining that he only went to visit a friend and ended up in a counselling session with the named church leader.

He reiterated that during the counselling session, the conversation he had with Mama Vida made him realise he was playing with his progress in some aspects.

The talented actor and YouTuber indicated that it was after meeting Kwaku Manu that he landed a role in the movie titled Aware So, a movie from which the catchphrase (Wo Y3 Me Taste) ‘I’m love you, I kiss you’ emerged.

“This is what created the popular persona Kwaku Manu,” he revealed, while cracking a little smile.

He admonished people who do not testify of and point others to the people or places that are the major sources of their breakthrough in life.

Nana Romeo asked if Kwaku Manu meant by his utterance that he would not have become the movie star that he is recognized for, if  he had remained in the SDA church.

“They don’t cast out bad spirits there, do they?” Kwaku Manu quizzed in his response to the question. “SDA does not cast out bad spirits.” Kwaku Manu added.

He emphasised his deep knowledge about the SDA tradition, and stated that even if you reveal God is speaking to you, the church will suppress your gift because they don’t believe such things.

Furthermore, he revealed that even pastors who delight and lead others in fervent prayers stand the risk of being reported and reprimanded at some point in time.

He insisted that as an actor, he needed a prophet who would actively intercede for him and give him timely spiritual directions.

Kwaku Manu didn’t have only criticism for his former church,  he also confessed that the church is “powerful” in that, his savoury speech and eloquence, which has made him a favourite of many, is from the quality SDA upbringing he received while growing up.

He equally praised the SDA church, saying its teaching, stringent regimen and discipline instils “the fear of God,” directs and gives a living conscience even to the most stubborn young member of the church.
