Rapping Priest Suspended by Catholic Church; “The use of rap music is not allowed in preaching”

A priest from Kenya has been suspended by the Catholic church due to his tendency to rap his sermons.

The widely popular Father Ogalo would usually conduct morning mass on Sundays in his traditional garb, conducting the proceedings. However, later in the day he dressed down to shorts, a long t-shirt, and a headband while rapping to his congregation.

Ogalo says that he has been using rap music to attract a young people to his church and using it to spread the message against drug abuse. The church says that he is free to worship, but cannot lead prayers in his same capacity.
