The Film Classification Committee (FCC) of Ghana has asked famed man of God, Prophet 1 aka Opambour to furnish all of its in-house content, including the pornographic content he displayed weeks ago with classification documents to its outfit.
This is on the heels of a sexually explicit content he shared on his privately owned station weeks ago which served as a prelude to a sermon he was preparing to deliver.
As reported by Ghnewsfile.Com when the incident popped up, the video which was actually extracted from a Nigerian pono hub, captured a male actor dressed as a fetish priest and was about to get down on the female actress who came to him for spiritual assistance.
Opambour who was preaching against schemes employed by these fetish priests especially, those who go about sleeping with their clients, wanted to use the video to illustrate his sermon and give the message much currency.
However, when it was about to go down, he ordered his producers to halt the content and abruptly pull the plugs. Of course, he added his trademark humor to the whole presentation.
His action has however not impressed the regulatory board who have bared their teeth at him for the infringement.
Read the full statement as issued by (FCC) below:
