Gospel artiste Amani has revealed that she has had to turn down lucrative shows since she got saved more than two years ago.
Amani who was well known for her secular songs ‘Bad Boy’, ‘Tonight’ and ‘My Baby’ explained,
Getting saved was a personal decision. My personal decision affected my career. If I was a nurse or an engineer my personal decision to get saved would not affect my music.
Getting saved was something I had postponed for sometime. I have no regrets.
Amani adds that she is glad she made the decision to become a Christian and to grow a better relationship with God and those around her.
I get promoters asking me to perform secular songs. This is despite the fact that I am now a gospel artiste but I turn them down because I have to be firm in my decision.
Amani also admits that she intentionally kept news of her getting saved away from the limelight till she felt the time was right.
When I got saved people found out after two years. I even went back to a bible school to refresh my knowledge on Jesus.
The singer continued,
For 2 years I was running my business because I was not performing anymore.

I turned down shows after getting saved. Funny enough, I do not regret not performing my old songs. I have no regrets because I now I understand why I had to go through that.
In conclusion, Amani insists that for her nothing can come between her and her faith.
When someone tells me ‘ooh Amani I am having a hangover’ I understand them. But if I had not been there I would be struggling to do so. However I would rather forfeit an entire secular show than compromise my faith.
