Kenyan Catholic Priest, Father Paul Ogola Has Reportedly Been Suspended By The Church Leadership For Rapping In Church.



Father Paul Ogola,  Kenyan Catholic priest, has reportedly been suspended by the church leadership for rapping in church.


The 45-year-old priest has been using rap music to urge youth to stop using drugs and to get involved in environmental and social justice issues. He recently hit media headlines over his unique way of preaching the gospel and discouraging social vices such as drug abuse.
According to the priest,
“I use the rap music to bring … youths to the church. Thereafter, I bring them to Christ,” 
He added,
“I want to rescue millions of youths who are leaving the Church because we are not taking care of their interests. We want to keep them in church. They can sing, rap and dance for Christ as they learn other life changing strategies."
 The priest has been suspended by the Diocese of Homa Bay for twelve months, which started on June 3rd,2018.
“We have suspended him for a year to give him time to reconsider his ways…every institution has its own code of conduct.”
The Father identified as Kocheil, said that Father Ogola should have inquired or consulted with the Bishops "to find out if what he was doing was in accordance with the Church doctrine.”
Fr ‘Masaa’ as he is commonly referred to in Rapogi parish would shift to his
rapping regalia-black shorts, a white shirt and a headband, at the end of the mass and begin his rap sessions.
