Praising The Lord Plus One:

A Ghanaian Filmmaker's Take on How Churches Get Rich (Video)

 

In his first film in three decades, Praising The Lord Plus One, renowned Ghanaian director Kwaw Ansah has set out to confront the relationship between Ghanaians and the church.

After the earth-shattering ‘Suffering to Lose’ released about two years ago, Film Africa has rebounded with yet another movie entitled ‘Praising the Lord Plus One.’

 

At a press launch at Home Africa, here in Accra, the Executive Producer of Film Africa and the latest movie, Kwaw Paintsil Ansah, cautioned the public to carefully examine their worship to make sure God and their consciences approve of what they do.

 

It is undisputable that religion plays an important role in the life of Africans and that belief is borne out by the explosion of churches on the continent.  In places like Ghana and Nigeria, the church is also big business and the wealth raked in by many pastors makes it difficult to keep opportunists away from the pulpits.

The TV Africa's Kwame Anum Anyetei has been given an exclusive preview of the movie which opens this weekend in Ghana.
