    Australian-based Ghanaian boxer, Michael Ayitey Okine, popularly known as Ayitey Powers, has revealed to bukomboxingnews.com that when he retires in the next two to three years he will go into gospel music.

    Ayittey Powers, a staunch member of T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN,) says he already has a couple of gospel songs.

    The songs, he said, were composed from the inspiration by Prophet T.B. Joshua.

    “[When] I retire from boxing, I am going to be a musician, and the name Powers will still be there,” he told U-TV’s Romeo Oduro.

    “I am a gospel artiste and I have a lot of gospel songs about my prophet because his God made me reach this far and I have a lot of gospel songs about the man of God,” he added.

    “I have all these great fans behind me and I think I have the fame and the fans are still there. My name Powers will still remain. I am a gospel musician as well and soon I will release my latest as well.”

    The light heavyweight boxer further said he is deeply into music and believes the music will take his name far just as boxing has done to him.

    He emphasised that the love for the pugilistic sport has not waned.

    “I love boxing. Boxing is my everything. I eat boxing, drink boxing and do everything with boxing. I have to retire at the age of 43-45 and walk away just as every boxer does.

    …Now I have the strength but in three years’ time I might not have the same strength to do anything in boxing again and I will call it quit.”

    His love for his Godfather, T.B. Joshua, seems ineffable as he says a chunk of his songs will be about the Nigerian man of God.

    “As I speak to you now, my true story will come out soon and you will know why I always mention Prophet T.B. Joshua’s name.”

    Ayittey Powers has lost twice to popular boxer, Braimah Issah Kamoko, also known as Bukom Banku, and after their aggressive shows, Powers appeared to prove no match for Kamoko.
