Popular Nigerian Gospel artiste Sinach has mentioned that even she wouldn’t mind her songs being played at night clubs across the world as long as people are getting the message and their lives are being changed.
The singer mentioned this in an interview with Sunday Punch where she also talked about her career as a gospel singer, the problems that come with being famous and a whole lot more.
Read excerpts from the interview below:
Did you know you would become a celebrated singer from the onset?
I didn’t even think singing was a career. When I joined the choir, I didn’t know any famous choir singer to tell me that singing in the choir could make me famous. I didn’t start with a band or start with a branded identity; so, I will say that becoming a famous singer is simply by God’s grace.
Was music all you wanted to do as a child?
Growing up as a child, I had flashes of dreams of being a singer because I have always loved singing and everyone around me felt I could sing as well. But, to be honest with you, I didn’t think I would end up as a singer. I strongly believe God designed my life for me.
Why did you settle for gospel music?
Like I said earlier, God has a hand in what I do today; doing gospel music is God’s choice for me. It’s important we realise that God created us for a purpose and it is very important for everyone to find that purpose and fulfill it. So, I will say I yielded to God’s purpose for my life.
I have been singing in the church since 1989, though it started as a hobby. I initially planned to leave the country after studying Physics at the University of Port Harcourt in Rivers State, but Pastor Chris Oyakhilome invited me to serve in the ministry. But for him, I might not have discovered my gift. Also, serving in the church has given me a solid foundation that helps me stand strong.
