The singer who reveals he values spirituality over religion became the talk of the town late last year when he released his album , ”Moral Instruction” in which some tracks took shots at the moral decadence in the Nigerian society.
“I’m not an atheist. I believe there is a God. But I believe in spirituality over religion.”
“I have nothing against the church or going to church. Everyone has the right to practice the religion they desire. It has been a while that I have been to church. It does not make me less of a Chr istian.Advertisement
“The reason is that I went to a few churches and , during sermons , I was put under undue pressure. There was a time that a pastor called me to the altar just to acknowledge my presence for being in church.
“In my mind , I felt that the service was not about me. I felt that everybody was there to worship God , yet they were putting undue pressure on me. The pastor gave me the microphone to address the congregation and I was puzzled; what did he expect me to say to the congregation?”
“My songs are always going to be heard. The world is a lot smaller now; it only takes one post and it’s everywhere regardless of the attempts by powers that be to try to stop stuff here and there.”
“If you’re making this kind of music , you have to always be ready for the worst. Of course , ‘This is Nigeria’ was banned. We’re still in court. But I have my fundamental rights so you can’t really stop that regardless of what body you are.”
