The not-so-decent family exchange was pushed into public view on Saturday when Kirk Franklin’s estranged son, Kerrion, published audio of the gospel legend berating him in a profanity-laden phone call that ends with Kirk yelling, “I will break your neck. Don’t you ever disrespect me.”

Franklin, who is known for his many hits songs and also, for hosting BET’s reality singing competition “Sunday Best,” posted a video apology over the weekend on his verified Twitter account.

“Many of you know that I have an older son named Kerrion Franklin, in May he’ll be 33,” the 51-year-old musician said. “For many years we have had a toxic relationship with him as a family.”

Kerrion Franklin posted the video of audio of the phone call with his father on Instagram, writing “This is why I’m done. No father should speak to their children like this.”

The elder Franklin was audible enough while hurling expletives and insulting his son before hanging up the call.

Kirk Franklin said in his apology video that he and his family, including his son, have sought counseling “to try to rectify this private family matter.”

“Recently my son and I had an argument that he chose to record,” Franklin began. I felt extremely disrespected in that conversation and I lost my temper and I said words that are not appropriate and I am sincerely sorry to all of you. I sincerely apologize.”

According to Franklin, during that conversation he got their family therapist on the phone to try and help with the situation, though he says his son did not play that part of the conversation.

“I’m not perfect, I’m human and I’m gonna make mistakes and I’m trying to get it right. Please keep me and my family in your prayers,” Kirk Franklin apologizes.

Many people showed support for Kirk Franklin saying he does not need to apologize. Some were of the opinion that it was a private matter and none of anyone’s business. Amongst Gospel music celebrities who showed support for Kirk Franklin include Kierra Sheard, Lecrae, Jonathan Nelson, Jon McReynolds, Marvin Sapp, amongst others.

Akuchay Responds to Trending News of Featuring “Naked” Dancer in Gospel Music Video

Published

on

Social media was inundated with posts of fast rising Nigerian-Canadian singer and songwriter, Akuchay, employing the services of a so-called scantily dressed dancer in her recently released music video for her hit single YOU ARE GOD.

Apparently, while others were enjoying the worship song and singing praises to God, an eagle-eyed individual was able to spot a ballet dancer in the sensational music video. He made his observation without mincing words by posting the comment, “But we are not to dance halfnaked” (sic).

​​This got people talking on post with them sharing their own views for or against the issue. While many didn’t see anything wrong with the outfit of the ballet dancer and it is the appropriate costume, a few saw it as something that could cause a stir and lead to lust among the brethren.

As fate and faith would have it, popular blogs and social media influencers like Instablog and Tunde Ednut also joined in saying a thing or two on the issue.

However, the artiste in the midst of the storm, Akuchay, has put out a statement via her social media pages (@iamakuchay), reacting to the (non-)issue. See her response below:

“My attention has been drawn to reports on social media about me featuring an half-naked dancer in my recent worship single titled YOU ARE GOD.

I’m glad that the video has gotten more supporters than accusers and I’m grateful to everyone that has said something positive about the song rather than looking for loopholes. Some people did not even watch the full video before condemning. It’s out on YouTube & Facebook and doing well on those platforms by God’s grace.

People like the accusers are the reason Christianity has and continues to be given a bad name. Always so judgemental, self-righteous and full of hate. When last did you study to understand the word of God? If you can’t control your lustful ways as a man/woman, even a fully clothed man/woman will still appear lustful to you.

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.

In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. Mathew 23:27-28

Learn to emulate the ways of Christ Jesus who came in human form to die for us sinners. I’m sure you will be quick to cast the first stone also when it also comes to gay/transgender people. Judge not lest ye be judged! Also take note of Mathew 7:3:5 ooh and definitely Mathew 21:32 because Jesus had you in mind when he spoke of this.

Finally beloved, before you sleep tonight, meditate upon Romans 2:1-3 and 1 John 4:8.

Watch the full video before you condemn.”

​​​​​We would like to hear from you. What’s your view about all this? Was the outfit of the ballet dancer unfit for a Gospel Music Video?
