2. Why You Ventured Into music?
Well I can’t clearly state when I ventured into music, it has always been a part of me, as I child I always loved Ron Kenoly, Don Moen and Alvin Slaughter. I started music ministration in 2015. And then I move with my team (Team Dewpraise) proclaiming Jesus everywhere we go.
3. Why you picked Gospel over all genres of music
Well, I didn’t pick the Gospel, the gospel (Jesus) picked me. The message of Christ and the joy He brings was what I wanted to show forth through music. And I loved singing so it made it all easy so I choose gospel music, Worship is the food of gods, that’s why we feel wonderful anytime we worship and so it is expedient for us to know that we are made to worship Jesus, I just picked that up and ever since God has been faithful in His covenant towards me.
4. What people should expect from the song “Show Me Your Face”
The song isn’t a Song of Worship, it is a prayer because it was birth of a hunger and a desire to actually see God. It’s a sincere prayer from the heart to see God’s face and the song would push every listener to a deeper realm of unprecedented encounters with God, it is not just a song that would make you feel good. It’s a song for those hungry for an encounter.
