Over the past few months, Christian Hip Hop fans in the UK and across the world have responded in various ways to the revelation that the prominent Christian rapper, Jahaziel, has denounced his Christian faith.
The artist that brought us songs like “Jesus”, “Help Me God” and “I Said Yeah”, and worked with artists such as Christon Gray, Sean C. Johnson, and Guvna B, announced his denouncement of Christianity in a vocal, almost “No Holds Barred”, manner on social media. His announcement was met with thousands of comments from confused, disappointed, and shocked fans amidst comments from some people congratulating the artist for what they call a “bold and intelligent” move.
Jahaziel has since avoided speaking directly with Christian media. However, he recently chose to have a chat with the Juicy Ladies stating that he was “now ready”. The Juicy Ladies took the opportunity to ask the rapper, “why?“…Well, it was more like, “Jahaziel…WAH GWARN???” And he was gracious enough to answer us.
Watch his response here in Part 1 of the interview.
