Despite My Flaws, My Success Is Motivating Other Artistes – Amaka Gift
Gospel singer Amaka Gift has said that despite not being at the top of the chart at the moment, she believes the little she has achieved has inspired a revolution in the gospel music sector in Imo State.
She revealed that seeing others working hard to succeed in the industry excites her knowing that all is to the glory of God.
“I’m very excited and encouraged to see Imo bloggers creating gospel music site, radio presenters, and circular artist singing and making gospel songs. My elders in the ministry making gospel music are now working hard and being recognized, talked about on social media and nominated for awards. Even show players are making plans to visit the studio and professionalize their career in music”, part of her post reads.
Appreciating God for leading her and making her a tool in His ministry, she said that her grace is like that of Mercy Chinwo who came and changed the standard of the industry, making gospel ministers to now go on massive promotions and also put up concerts.
“My grace is like that of Mercy Chinwo, she arrived Nigerian gospel music industry in 2017 and till date has remained the flag bearer in the music ministry, her arrival motivated the pioneers of Nigerian gospel music to pick up the cross and follow Jesus. Now likes of Franks Edwards are making promo and giving out cash to propagate the gospel through their new songs, Sinach and the rest are hosting concerts, making international collaboration and going on tours. Jesus is Lord.
I want to appreciate God for making me a tool He uses to ignite the passion of my brethren in the ministry to carry out the work of our father here in Imo State and beyond. I pray to the almighty God through Jesus Christ our Lord to bring each and every one of us, our audience to the hearing of our songs and to the glory of his name. Amen”
