I am deeply grateful to God. It’s so humbling to see the numbers increase by the day.
“And we discovered you are the only verified gospel artist in Nigeria on Tiktok, how did that happen?”

Hmmm… The exposure or fame can be very intoxicating, I must be honest. However, I thank God for the people around me, most especially my family. They help to keep me in check and ensure the focus is not blurred.
As regards the influence on my music. I’ve got a new audience listening to my sound, and that for me is really amazing.
