At a very tender age God began to release songs in his spirit. He kept singing them in the bathroom.. ‘’seeing that I come from a denomination where talents are not encouraged’’. But during his National Youth Service year, the Lord said to him ‘’Son it’s time to sing and reach out to the world with the songs I have been giving to you’’. According to him ‘’my songs are inspired directly from the throne of God’’.
