In a post on instagram she revealed about her past:
“I had a dream as a little girl that one day I will change people’s lives. I would have dreams of singing to many people from different nations and tongues but when I opened my eyes I was right there still on my bed waking up to the sound of my father’s early morning BBC radio news to start my seemingly uninteresting chores before school.
It was just a dream. As the years went by, my parents insisted that I train my mind .Then I met Jesus and he changed my purpose and changed my reason for singing. Challenges along the way built my character. Like a clay,I’ve been beaten, poured upon, torn apart, rolled over, put into the fire, and continuously moulded into shape in the process of making me”
According to her music was her dream. Her father objected to her musical career. He told her she would go hungry as a musician, that musicians amount to nothing. It was when she met Pastor Chris that he changed herperspective. He told me her she could be anything she want to be in life with God’s word.
She is a spiritually gifted woman in terms of gospel music. She has given hope to the hopeless all over the world through her inspiring songs. She is a multiple award-winning song writer, recording artiste, producer and worship song leader.
